STRANGE AND UNUSUAL COMMENTS IN SERVICE.
A Warrant Officer said to us that we could have some free advice, do you know why you should always cut you toe nails straight and not curved? If you don't cut them straight, they don't put holes in the ends of you socks. What a pathetic piece of useless information that was.
I was inspecting a cotrol diff on an M113A1 and knocking the lock tabs open on the cover bolts when I slipped and gave myself an injury. I yelled Ow you bitch, My VM Sergeant, Hawkeye was close by and came rushing over. What happened Mac, he enquired in a bit of a panic. I replied, Oh bitch Sarge, I broke a nail. Is that all he siad, I thought you hurt your self. I grabbed a pair of pliers and said give me your finger sarge, I'll rip your nail off and you tell me if it hurts.
I was at the 4X4 show with our vehicles and was sitting on top of the ARVL on the cargo Hatch with Hawkeye and a woman walked passed the side of the hull very well endowed in the chest area. It was an extremely hot day so of course she wasn't wearing much. The Sarge was crawling along the side of the hull above her having a good perv. Wih the Cargo hatch open and his attention on cleevage, he put his left hand down in the open bay of the cargo hatch and proceeded to roll into the vehicle landing flat on his back across the "coffin" which is the winch cover shaped like a coffin. Everyone had a good laugh at him.
We were packing up in our small cage at Pucka at the end of an exercise, I bent over to put some of my tools back in my tool box as Trooper Coal picked up the whip ariels. Guess what, they don't call em whips for nothing as they were positioned between my legs at the time, Coal had his back towards me and picked them up. I was whipped in the nuts good and proper and went straight down on the ground. WO Pace walked in with an fficer and stand fast was called. I remained on the ground holding my guts, and WO Pace said, Who got Macca in the nuts!! Everyone cracked up laughing, except me.
Whilst out in the field, Sergeant Hollingsworth had to duck into the Armoured Centre and get some parts for us. We were out on the range with the fitters and had stopped for lunch when Sgt Hollingsworth arrived with the parts and a BBQ Chook from the family store. we were sitting there munching on the Chook when Sgt Hollingsworth noticed the Colonels Land Rover coming towards us. The sarge yelled shit hide the chook!!! We rushed about madly hiding this chook and trying to get rid of the smell. The Colonel kept driving past, thankfully.
We got a lecture on sexual harrassment in the work place. This also consisted of a video. At the conclusion, the general consensus was, Sexual harrassment, yes, there's not enough of it!! We made on hell of a mockery of it touching each other and that's harrassment replies. We had a lot of fun.
My thanks again to Alex.
