9 to 5

So when we aren't speeding about in lifeboats, training or on a shout. What do we all do? Well, we're a pretty varied bunch really. If I can remember rightly we have: 2 chippies, 4 RNLI full time employees, teacher, gardener, Jewsons manager, software development manager, shellfish fisherman, charter boat skipper, estate agent, youth minister, local government worker, pa to a patent agent, electrician, 2 tank re-builders, chef, aerial fitter, CAD designer, mechanic and an outdoor instructor. We also have Paul 'B' and none of us have any idea what he does.

So there you go!

On the same boat
With a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day
Your ship'll come in
And the tides gonna turn
An its all gonna roll you away

Workin' 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin
Barely gettin' by
Its all takin'
And no givin'
They just use your mind
And you never get the credit
It's enough to drive you
Crazy if you let it

(Dolly Parton)

Chippies as in carpenters or chip shops? :)

You've heard the story then?!

I think you wrote about it a long time ago on here.

You're right of course, still makes me chuckle everytime I use the word 'Chippie'!
