Urine Tests

Discussion in 'The Gash Barge' started by Longgone, Jan 15, 2012.

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. The Urine test (This was written by a rig worker in the North Sea - What he says makes a lot of sense!)

    I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.
    In order to earn that pay cheque, I work on a rig for a drilling contractor. I am required to pass a random urine test for drugs and alcohol, with which I have no problem.
    What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.
    Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a benefits cheque because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
    Please understand that I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
    I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their arse drinking beer and smoking dope.
    Could you imagine how much money the government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a benefit cheque?
    Please pass this along if you agree or simply delete it if you don't.
    Hope you will pass it along though, because something has to change in the UK , and soon!

    That's an old one.

    Just out of curiosity, how much does a piss test cost?

    At one time downing a pint of your run ashore oppos piss was a right of passage, happy days.

    The rig worker has hit the nail on the head, I am sure that none of us like our hard earned taxes dished out to alcohol and drug abusers and other nefarious scrounging scum.
  4. Like so much knee-jerk reactionary gibberish it's irrelevant though isn't it?

    There is no connection between the requirement for urine tests for personnel in roles such as 'rig worker' or servicemen/women, and this individual's disdain for those on benefits.

    It's cut and paste yank shit anyhow - just they've managed to spell cheque correctly.

    Pay cheque. Do fuck off.
  5. There's no cost for a piss test,if it's yellow and smells a lot your kidneys need water! I remember some old salt telling me as a sprog always drink enough water until your piss runs clear.
    I tried that with Brickwoods and John Smiths,bloody rubbish!
  6. You can include Devenish Ale in that list ......... tried it when on Workup ...... :pukel:
