Not counting my wars with the Red komodo dragon..........

Asked to sit in on some interviews last week with my superior...........The usual crap "I'm passionnate"......"I have lots of experience" (Even though they are fresh out of Uni)......"I'm a team player" "I'm interested in your company" The last person you argued with..and what was it about ?? 3559488474 ..........You know the kind of crap..

Anyway I spent the whole time peeing about on my laptop.........After it was over the jerk turned to me and basically said "you were a lot of help weren't you, don't know why you bothered"..........To which I replied along the lines of "You asked me to....and I was thinking about all the positive interesting things I could be doing instead".........

Which didn't go down to well..........and it descended from there into a shouting match both of us telling the other how useless they are at their job.....

Never a truer word said in my case...........However I'm pretty much fireproof due to my Father-in-law's interest..

What was your last argument...and did you win.............Mine was an honorable draw....

I don't bother arguing with the Me'm Sahib any more. I never win and don't even get the satisfaction of having the last word.

Anything she says at the end of an argument is the final word.

I've had an ongoing argument with one of my colleagues about whether it's gayer to keep a record of calorie consumption or to wear flip-flops. Hasn't been satisfactorily resolved as it just descends into insults but, suffice to say, I now find the flip-flop wearing moron's opinions irrelevent.

memsahib is an old phrase from colonial times for 'er indoors basically, only typically seen as more respectful i.e. what house 'staff' would say to owners.

Essentially it singles out the Old School Racists like Lion from the new breed.

Was once met with a mix of blank stares and baleful glances when suggesting one particularly hot and humid day at work that we could do with a desk sized punka-wallah each.

Old School racist..?   Well, she is half Scottish but I've never held that against her.

There are a lot of Indian words in common usage in the English language.  Wallah is one, Char is another.  In the armed forces it's quite common to refer to laundry as "Dhobi".  We British sometimes use the word "Doolally" to describe somebody who is slightly mad.   You may use an avatar on your 606v2 profile , or tie a bandanna around your head.  You may live in a bungalow and your daughter may wear a bangle around her wrist.  You may even believe in Karma or listen to the pundits on telly during the footie half time.

English is quite a mongrel language actually, and it has absorbed a lot from other languages, although I suppose the new school racists wouldn't know about anything foreign like that.  <wink>

love working out, but calorie counting is a bit naff, plus flops are really only a slight tweak away from Roman gladiator sandals, which I suppose is the manliest shoe ever.

Perhaps calorie counting should now be considered a straight pastime. I don't have a problem with that. I would rather count calories than be a fat bas*ard. At least I know my wife still fancies me.

She was lucky it was only a sweat rag.  I once had a blazing row with my sister when I left my w@nk rag next to her chest of drawers.

I remember an argument I had with my Son's headteacher a few years ago...........

My Son bless him is a lot more intelligent than moi.........But it's counterbalanced with him being young for his age and more than a little dozy....

Sometime back he got his trousers caught on a nail at school.... obviously the trousers were ruined which is not a problem (trousers cost very little) but My Wife rightly pointed out the School's culpability and danger in leaving un-addressed nails about and complained !!.........No redress was forthcoming and we all moved on happily ever after....

A few weeks letter dozy-boy was in cooking class when he knocked over a dozen of the teacher's eggs which were apparently scheduled to be used for a class the next day.....

The teacher sent an officious letter home with Roberto telling us we need to send in a dozen eggs with him the next day etc etc........Anyway my darling red viper proceeded to lose the plot... but as luck would have it...... I was off that week so I calmed her down and told her that I'd go in with Rob when I dropped him off and have a nice chit chat....

Next day I showed the Head teacher the letter and though she tried her best to back the Cookery teacher's case...I explained that as she couldn't be bothered redressing the trouser incident..........If I ever did bring in some eggs I could reassure her that they wouldn't be ending up in her Cookery department but would be inserted some place the sun wouldn't be shining..

1-1.................and very satisfying..

Not disputing the origins of these words Lion, just suggesting that you can't quite get over the fact that we lost the Raj some time back and the World's been a damn sight poorer place because of it. What what pip pip and all that!!!!!

School got over lucky.

I had the same problem walking to a school I was volunteering at a few years ago, trousers tore clean open down the leg as I went past a council bin just outside the school. Long story short I shot straight to M&S to replace them and Westminster covered my costs in full without any pushback - was pleasantly surprised!

Yet when men invest similar time in the male version (porn vids) and they say "Whaddya mean you don't take it up the arse?", we're all sexist misogynistic pigs, whereas the women are just 'exploring their sexuality'.

You've heard of teenagers being described as 13 going on 30, right? The opposite would be 30 going on 13 because they're immature.

Similar to Jeremy Clarkson, only he's 50-odd!

Was once met with a mix of blank stares and baleful glances when suggesting one particularly hot and humid day at work that we could do with a desk sized punka-wallah each.


Old School racist..?    Well, she is half Scottish but I've never held that against her.

There are a lot of Indian words in common usage in the English language.  Wallah is one, Char is another.  In the armed forces it's quite common to refer to laundry as "Dhobi".  We British sometimes use the word "Doolally" to describe somebody who is slightly mad.   You may use an avatar on your 606v2 profile , or tie a bandanna around your head.  You may live in a bungalow and your daughter may wear a bangle around her wrist.  You may even believe in Karma or listen to the pundits on telly during the footie half time.

English is quite a mongrel language actually, and it has absorbed a lot from other languages, although I suppose the new school racists wouldn't know about anything foreign like that.  <wink>
Not disputing the origins of these words Lion, just suggesting that you can't quite get over the fact that we lost the Raj some time back and the World's been a damn sight poorer place because of it. What what pip pip and all that!!!!!


Suggest away all you like, old bean.   But you'd be wrong.   I always viewed the Raj as being a part of the empire on which the sun never set, but also the blood never dried.

I think India is a whole lot better off without Britain's involvement anymore. And they're better at cricket than we are, too.  But I must confess to enjoying some of the old terminology.  I suppose I could say things like "Innit" and "OMG" or I could simply adopt a pseudo-Jamaican accent, pull my trousers down so that most of my underwear is on display and put a baseball cap on backwards.

Yep.... dat wud be top proper for de bloke wot am my age.  Innit.
