Old habits die hard...

Hey - great way to get out of helping with shopping.

Polishing the undersides of my shoes, checking pockets when I stand up, '5 minutes before' and the ability to scrounge three brews a minute in any weather.

Still lace my shoes the same way I laced my army boots, always polish the instep of my shoes, and still, after all these years, step off on my left foot.

People think I'm odd for using shoe polish on my shoes! Oh, and I get to meetings 5 minutes before, the others usually arrive 5 minutes after it's scheduled to start! Cnuts. Shaving every morning is another.

I also find that people at work talk alot about a 'can do' attitude and teamwork but don't demonstrate these attributes.

i still press my work shirts the same way i pressed my old green working dress shirts, even with the bullshit crease on the back. think we all still polish the instep of our shoes too :) and when the boss at work messes up i still mutter something about the 7 Ps.

1) Still turn shoes/boots upside down and shake them just in case any jungle nasties are in there.
2) Only put hands in pockets to retrieve something.
3) Can't lean against anything, it has managed to stand up on it's own this long without any help from me!

Not so bad but I did pull up an air cadet (in uniform, minus beret) in tesco this morning for having hair down to his shoulders. If you're going to present the public image of the forces don't make them all think we're shite!

Curtains. I can't stand to see a crooked curtain and I fold the bottom ends inwards after opening them. Drives the missus mad.

"Really? Even if they've been sat downstairs under the stairs overnight? Why??

I bet you don't."


I bet I do! If i'm going to wear them I will shake them first upside down, old habits die hard.

Oh, hang on, no I don't, as I'm not **** and have a life

You have a life devoted, it seems, to computer games. Not sure that evenings spent on COD qualifies. Will stick to my curtain patrol....

Oh dear god...
I used to live in Huyton, a suburb of Liverpool. Where we were was split into areas where owners had bought their own property (looked well looked after), areas where people still had pride (about the same) and where the residents were canditates for Jeremey Kyle or had given up all hope.
There was a shopping parade that consisted of an off licence, 2xgen stores, chippy, 2xhairdressers(see below) and a chemist/doctors that looked like a PB in Helmand.
One day spotted a young lad (about 11yrs old) dropping a peice of litter - immediately, without thinking I screamed out "pick that up you little sh*t". The look on his face was amazing - I think I was the first person to ever tell him to do anything.
(One day getting a haircut, the gay and very camp hairdresser was somewhat concerned about his little doggy, peek or something like that. He said he was worried about it getting savaged by the local scrote's hounds. I told him its not their fault, they are just animals, stupid, ignorant products of their environment - and their dogs are not much better either. He had a bit of a smile on his face after that - so did I).
