A little humour….

As may know – I work in the oil and gas industry. Currently I am in Iraq, where you could say tensions are a little high the moment.

Each day – one of the Construction Managers e-mails a ‘quote of the day’.

– Here is an example.

“If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.”

Now, to be honest, as long as I have the eBay app on my phone – I do not have time to digest that crap. I can only assume it’s some kind of religious shite?

After 4 or 5 days of receiving these, I just HAD to ‘reply all’ with some quotes that I found on the internet. The Chuck Norris Fact Site to be more specific.

I replied with…

“When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone……………he had 3 missed calls from Chuck Norris ”

Needless to say, others jumped on the bandwagon and loads more Chuck Norris facts were sent around.

The originator of the ‘Quote of the Day’ has since removed me from his distribution list.

Even in these times of stress and tension… you’ll find me enjoying myself.

  1. He’s been on one of those managerial motivation courses. Probably never had an original thought in his life. The next time you see him tell him that there is more to him than meets the eye. He’ll probably think it’s a compliment.

    1. yep, you are right, must have been on one of these courses and now thinks he is the Man. You will meet one of these on every job in the expat environment.
      I got dragged to one as well when I was working for a Sidney company on a bridge project in Indonesia. I only just had gotten back from a 2 year stint there and all I wanted to do was fuck and drink. So there I am, first week end in Sydney, after relocating during the week from Perth and I end up on a 2 day company seminar in the Blue Mountains….Now don’t get me wrong. The BM is a beautiful place but what is the point if you’re stuck in a massive boardroom all day.
      Can’t even let it rip in the evenings. Getting rat arsed in front of the new Management team and the Directors is probably not the best move when you just started……
      Anyway, must have been a ripper of a seminar as still today, I have no idea what it was all about’
      And finally, all that is written about Cuck Norrris……..well at least it’s true!!! hahaha
