The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
whats the nickname for a logistics stores accountant in the navy ?
(Also tight tw*t, as in: they pay for all stores out of their own pocket.)
Edited to add: I prefer Tidly's answer.
Not available any base
depends what his surname is, which one did you have in mind?
NAAIHTO; but I shanâ€™t tell you when.
A seaborne blanket stacker and box kicker.
Bunch of p!ss taking fannys you knew what i was meaning :lol: lol i think i heard from one of the staff on the R.N.A.C that stores accounts get called Stokers but i'm not sure is that right.?
They dream of being Stokers but don't have a high enough RT score (they are called Jack Dusty, mainly because they think they're Jack and all the stores are dusty because it's been sat on the shelf for so long)
One does strive to be dead-pan; but well spotted.
So glad someone put the record straight.
Logs(Supply Chain) definitely aren't stokers, however as a Petty Officer stoker on mine hunters or sweepers they can expect to undertake stores accounting as well as maintaining most of the machinery that isn't main engines or generators, together with watchkeeping (keeping shifts).
As stated by one, we were called Jackdusties / White Mice, though with this navy they could be called anything these days.
We were used in all departments when I served, Ops room, Gunbay,Magazine, Shellroom, Seacat mount and RASing (after all the others had turned in to their pits).
But they all want to be a Dusty's friend when they want something
They may dream of such privileges, but it's never going to happen. :wink:
At least Jack Dusties can write and dont eat the crayons, unlike stokers!
2 things wrong
a) You can never get crayons off the Mafia 'cos "your not entitled"
b) Crayons are soooo yesterday's Navy, I much prefer sniffing magic markers :wink:
Ah, you see, that is a common misconception.
It's not because "you're not entitled".
It is, in fact, because the dusties have eaten them.
I stand corrected, many thanks :thumbright:
You're more than welcome.
I found that the same applied when I wanted some batteries for my walkman (an ancient type of 'what's-it pod' for the juniors here).
No wonder they were a bit wide-eyed and spikey-haired.
No offence like, but what possessed you to even think that Jack Dusty would contemplate giving you batteries for your Walkman?
...may we move along...
...nothing to see here...
Separate names with a comma.
