Rules of Courtship

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Rule One:
    If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package,
    because you're sure not picking anything up.
    Rule Two:
    You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long
    as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes
    or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.
    Rule Three:
    I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear
    their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.
    Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are
    complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue,
    so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear
    showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in
    order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the
    course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and
    fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
    Rule Four:
    I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a
    barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes
    to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
    Rule Five:
    It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we
    should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do
    not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of
    when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only
    word I need from you on this subject is "early."
    Rule Six:
    I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date
    other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter.
    Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to
    date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I
    will make you cry.
    Rule Seven:
    As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and
    more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time
    for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her
    makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge.
    Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like
    changing the oil in my car ?
    Rule Eight:
    The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter :
    Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool.
    Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight.
    Places where there is darkness.
    Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness.
    Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to
    wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a
    sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat.
    Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies
    which features chain saws are okay.
    Hockey games are okay.
    Old folks homes are better.
    Rule Nine:
    Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged,
    dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the
    all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are
    going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole
    truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres
    behind the house. Do not trifle with me.
    Rule Ten:
    Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine .
