Re: What are you? PC?

A long winded post-but i had to! Sorry

Nelson: "Order the signal, Hardy."


Hardy: "Aye, aye sir."


Nelson: "Hold on, that's not what I dictated to Flags. What's the
meaning
of this?"


Hardy: "Sorry sir?"


Nelson (reading aloud): "' England expects every person to do his or her
duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion
or disability.' - What gobbledegook is this?"


Hardy: "Admiralty policy, I'm afraid, sir. We're an equal opportunities
employer now. We had the devil's own job getting ' England 'past the
censors, lest it be considered racist."


Nelson: "Gadzooks, Hardy. Hand me my pipe and tobacco."


Hardy: "Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free
working environments."


Nelson: "In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the main
brace to steel the men before battle."


Hardy: "The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. Its part of the
Government's policy on binge drinking."


Nelson: "Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we'd better get on with it .full
speed ahead."


Hardy: "I think you'll find that there's a 4 knot speed limit in this
stretch of water."


Nelson: "Damn it man! We are on the eve of the greatest sea battle in
history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow's nest
please."


Hardy: "That won't be possible, sir."


Nelson: "What?"


Hardy: "Health and Safety have closed the crow's nest, sir. No harness
and
they said that rope ladders don't meet regulations. They won't let anyone
up
there until a proper scaffolding can be erected."


Nelson: "Then get me the ship's carpenter without delay, Hardy."


Hardy: "He's busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the fo'c'sle
Admiral."


Nelson: "Wheelchair access? I've never heard anything so absurd."


Hardy: "Health and safety again, sir. We have to provide a barrier- free
environment for the differently abled."


Nelson: "Differently abled? I've only one arm and one eye and I refuse
even to hear mention of the word. I didn't rise to the rank of admiral by
playing the disability card."


Hardy: "Actually, sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under represented in
the
areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency."


Nelson: "Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons."


Hardy: "A couple of problems there too, sir. Health and safety won't let
the crew up the rigging without hard hats. And they don't want anyone
breathing in too much salt - haven't you seen the adverts?"


Nelson: "I've never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the
men to stand by to engage the enemy."


Hardy: "The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral."


Nelson: "What? This is mutiny!"


Hardy: "It's not that, sir. It's just that they're afraid of being
charged
with murder if they actually kill anyone. There are a couple of legal-aid
lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks."


Nelson: "Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?"


Hardy: "Actually, sir, we're not."


Nelson: "We're not?"


Hardy: "No, sir. The French and the Spanish are our European partners
now.
According to the Common Fisheries Policy, we shouldn't even be in this
stretch of water. We could get hit with a claim for compensation."


Nelson: "But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil."


Hardy: "I wouldn't let the ship's diversity co-ordinator hear you saying
that sir. You'll be up on disciplinary report."


Nelson: "You must consider every man an enemy, who speaks ill of your
King."


Hardy: "Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural
age.
Now put on your Kevlar vest; it's the rules. It could save your life"


Nelson: "Don't tell me - health and safety. Whatever happened to rum,
sodomy and the lash?"


Hardy: As I explained, sir, rum is off the menu! And there's a ban on
corporal punishment."


Nelson: "What about sodomy?"


Hardy: "I believe that is now legal, sir."


Nelson: "In that case............................... kiss me, Hardy

It was dug out of retirement as i was giving my email account a long overdue cleaning-another good one i found:-

London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense - Thursday, 15 Feb
2007

'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was,
since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He
will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the
worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in
charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition..

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly
children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a student; but
could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to
have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better
treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you
couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar
could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his
wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He
is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If
you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do
nothing.'

And a little extra........................
Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600
employees and has the following statistics?
29 have been accused of spouse abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad cheques
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
4 have been arrested on drug-related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year

Which organization is this?

It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that cranks
out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in
line

This is absolutely ridiculous! I think what it does show is that you have a bit of respect for decent old fashioned values. I always open the door for women and always get at least a thankyou. Sometimes a nice smile and a kind word. I think most women appreciate this small gesture.

PC, me? No, just sensible and well mannered.

Re: What are you? PC?

I find that older women like when I hold a door open for them and say thank you, but younger women, i.e. 30 and younger don't say anything. Very few say thank you, but the majority don't even acknowledge me. I guess they expect that of men and feel they don't need to be polite anymore.

Of course, the subject of being polite can be a whole new loooooooooooooong thread.

Re: What are you? PC?

If I hold a door open and don't get a response, I usually say something along the lines of " you are most welcome" or " in polite society we say thankyou", that usually gets a guilty apology and some sort of thanks.

You don't get a response because they're too busy having a conversation on their bluetooth to notice someone actually opened the door for them.
