Having been a pad, albeit a civvy one, for the last six years, I am still waiting for certain aspects of pad behaviour to emerge. For some reason, i'm still not getting the urge to steal toilet rolls from work or ask my workmates if I can take their unfinished packed lunches home for my kids to eat. Are pads still proper tightwads? During my time, they were absolutely unshameable, and would prof completely useless items, using the catch all phrase "Me kids'll love them." I would be interested to hear any anecdotal evidence that the beanstealing pad is not extinct. Even better would be anyone that has continued this behaviour pattern even after his military service is over.
