Admin

An action that covers just about anything to do with sorting out yourself, your kit or those around you. For example, 'I'm off to do some admin' can mean:

1. I'm off to urinate/ defecate/ wash/ shave.

2. I'm off to unpack/ repack/ adjust/ readjust my kit or bedspace.

3. I'm off to clean something.

4. I'm going for a kip.

In rare cases, it could apply to doing paperwork, but use of the term is to be discouraged. In these circumstances, the term 'work' may be substituted.

An individual with poor admin could be said to be a Clip or in Dog Order.
