  2. Thats it them, staff dhobying once a week and not ironing uniforms!!
  3. What's ironing? and what was wrong with foo foo dust?
  4. Go to work for 6 months, and not even allowed out for a fag!!!
    Hot seating in the staff canteen.
  5. Pity he can't clear the shelves of all that girly smelly stuff and replaced it with a huge selection of international beers, plus shelves of odd socks etc so you can match the ones you've got.
  6. He's bringing out a new line in the mobile phone section.

    Second hand 185's, or Gertrude as it is/was known.

    500 free minutes and unlimited calls to skimmers when
    carrying out underwater looks.

  7. Where did it say he was a submariner?
    He was only in for five years he hardly had enough time to finish training bloody OD
  8. Modern navy now, think their 189's
  9. I'll tell you what's wrong with foo foo dust.

    I always pick up my BLACK t-shirt just after liberally dusting my nethers. White dusty hand prints all over my shirt, looks like I've been bummed from begind by a giant sherbet dynamite.
  10. I'd have thought it would have been a 183 if it was a mobile.
  11. You could either wear a different colour of T shirt, or just smeel of old farts and deisel.
  12. At the bottom of the dit about him, says he was on boats for 6 years, Don't know why but I assume he was a sausage officer.

  14. Should have kept reading then

    "What was the most important event in your working life?
    In 1991, being accepted to do my MBA at Harvard Business School despite six years in submarines and no business experience at all. It taught me anything is possible."
  15. Not Tried Black Foo-Foo dust?

    Empty one laser toner cartridge and apply liberally........ :twisted:
  16. Bedding in brushes on DC machinery can also have the desired effect
  17. Bedding in brushes on DC machinary.....

    I've got this strange all over feeling now :oops:
