    Alot of them talk bad about the navy, one even gets kicked out for racism.
    Really interesting though.

    I liked the one story the girl was talking about on the bridge about her mom being a whore and her dad a pimp, then they show her leaving to clean some windows or something. was good.

    and widds, im stealing your car when i get there. I stole gordons for a day, only took about two blocks for me to realize what side of the street to drive on.

    :werd: And get used to "Field Days"!! FUN FUN! :squint: I hated field days. Who the hell decided to call it a field day anyway?

    Yeah, even after you make PO, you have to "field day". EVERYONE except Chiefs (and those pansy-ass Officers) field day.

    FYI - Field day = cleaning like a bitch.

    on my ship we had "clamp down" EVERY morning (every morning...) from 0730-0800

    it gets so bad after 3 years of doing that that people start scrubbing holes/depressions into walls, erm i mean bulkheads.......

    Clamp down started off as a Boatswain Mate thing. And it's from reveille until you're done. We have cleaning stations or cleaning quarters whatever you may call it from 0730-0800 every morning on my ship. I can't wait to get away from the Surface community.
