If they don't end up in a raging screaming match - my mum's an ex-RN. ;D




PS: Just in case you don't know, in this case RN = Registered Nurse (not Royal Navy)

Yup, got that... I can hear it now...

"We didn't have to put up with all this Malarkey* in my day."

"Well we do now, and if I want to keep this job, I have to put up with and action said malarkey."

"If you say so, but I still don't see why I can't have a Gin before breakfast to wash the meds down with."


Or something along those lines...  ;D ;D ;D

Gin won't be an issue - my mother had an alcoholic mother &, although not tea-total, alcohol isn't her issue ... bloody-minded stubbornness, on the other hand :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

My great grandmother, at the age of 97, was told by an earnest young doctor in her local hospital that her regime of 20 Capstan full strength (untipped) and a bottle of Guinness every day was "markedly shortening her life-span" Her reply; 90 seconds worth of unparliamentary language and vituperation; during which she never drew breath or repeated herself earned her a spontaneous round of applause from a passing consultant and his team.  "There's absolutely nothing wrong with her mind or her wind", he said "and her vocabulary is quite remarkable too"   This was reported to me by a nurse I know, in tones of admiration!

One can only hope that the young doctor learned to think before he opened his mouth in future!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
