    5. Perform a weekly disassembly and inspection of your lawnmower.

    6. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays turn your water temperature up to 200 degrees, then on Tuesday and Thursday turn it down to 10 degrees. On Saturdays, and Sundays declare to your entire family that they used too much water during the week, so all showering is secured.

    7. Raise your bed to within 6 inches of the ceiling.

    8. Have your next door neighbor come over each day at 5am, and blow a whistle so loud that Helen Keller could hear it and shout "Reveille, Reveille, all hands heave out and trice up".

    9. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she is going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in the back yard at 6am and read it to you.

    10. Eat the raunchiest Mexican food you can find for three days straight, then lock yourself out of the bathroom for 12 hours, and hang a sign on the door that reads "Secured-contact OA division at X-3053".

    11. Submit a request form to your father-in-law, asking if it's ok for you to leave your house before 3 pm.

    12. Invite 200 of your not-so-closest friends to come over, then board up all the windows and doors to your house for 6 months. After the 6 months is up, take down the boards, wave at your friends and family through the front window of your can't leave until the next day. You have duty.

    13. Shower with above-mentioned friends.

    14. Make your family qualify to operate all the appliances in your home (i.e. Dishwasher Operator, blender technician, etc.).

    15. Walk around your car for 4 hours checking the tire pressure every 15 minutes.

    29. Needle gun the aluminum siding on your house after your neighbors have gone to bed.

    30. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone and shout at the top of your lungs that your home is under attack, and order them to man their battle stations. ("General quarters, general quarters, all hands man your battle stations")

    31. Make your family menu a week ahead of time and do so without checking the pantry and refrigerator.

    32. Post a menu on the refrigerator door informing your family that you are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for at least an hour, when they finally get to the kitchen, tell them that you are out of steak, but you have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they don't pay attention to the menu any more so they just ask for hot dogs.

    33. When baking a cake, prop up one side of the pan while it is in the oven. Spread icing on real thick to level it off.

    36. In your grim, gray dumpster (refer to #1), with 200 of your not-so-closest friend (cite para. 12) regardless of gender, suffer through PMS!

    37. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your wife whip open the curtain about 3 hours after you go to sleep. She should then shine a flashlight in your eyes and mumble "Sorry, wrong rack"

    48. Set your alarm clock to go off at random during the night, jump up and get dressed as fast as you can making sure you button up the top button on your shirt, stuff your pants into your socks. Run out into the backyard and uncoil the garden hose.

    49. Once a month, take every major appliance apart and put them back together again.

    50. Install a fluorescent lamp under the coffee table and then get under it and read books.

    51. Raise the thresholds and lower the top sills of your front and back doors so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through one of them.

    52. Every so often, throw the cat in the pool and shout "Man overboard, starboard side".....Then run into the house and sweep all the pots and dishes off the counter. Yell at the wife and kids for not having the kitchen stowed for sea.

    53. Put on the headphones from your stereo set, but don't plug them in. Hang a paper cup around your neck with string. Go stand in front of your stove. Say to no one in particular, "Stove manned and ready". Stand there for three or four hours. And say again to no one in particular, "Stove secured". Roll up your headphones and paper cup and place them in a box.

    54. Tie both ends of a string to a brick and hang it from your neck. Don headphones & cup from #53. Stand on your front porch from 0000-0400 and report bearing, range and estimated CPA of all traffic. Update contact reports as necessary.

    55. Crush every 3rd shirt button when doing laundry. Clean laundry for the entire family is to be delivered in a single pile on the hall floor. There should not be an even number of socks.

    Because no one outside of the navy speaks our particular brand of English, try explaining how you swabbed the deck on the forecastle (but only the slick-deck), while field-daying. And how the head was OOC so you had to get water for the cadillac from the scuttlebutt, but seaman Jones was sky-larking so you had to put him on report...I mean Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: it's enough to make you say FTN!

    Gju42486, being an ex Navy man I found this to be hilarious ! Onboard ship we would have a guy who was a laundryman one month, ran the Geedunk the next month and then be the barber the next month. After getting a haircut from this guy your hair looked like the top view of a corn maze ! You could feel his hand wiggling all over as he ran the cluippers over your head.

  5. I just loved the GQ's in the middle of the night and racking my shins on the knee knockers on the way to my shop. Or waking up in your bunk after being home for awhile and smacking your forehead on your buddies bunk

    We wanted our pilots to be well rested before they blew the hell out some poor unlucky SOB. :eek:

    Honestly, my Father spent a huge part of his life in the Navy during WWII and Korea. I can respect anyone who could spend that much time on a ship. From reading the post, I would have gone crazy after 6 months at sea.
  11. I know this is an old thread but I thought it was funny as hell. I was on a ship during my first deployment in the marine corps. Being a marine meant getting worse living quarters then the navy did. Ever hear of a ship called the USS Shreveport? maybe some of you retired guys was built in '62 but yet I got stuck on it in 2007. It was so old they literally decomissioned it and sank it a few months after we got back to the states. Lucky us huh?
  12. HAHA, I've seen this before but it's still funny every time it comes across my screen. Lots of truth to that in my 12 years in the canoe club. No reference to adding "bulls eye's" though and refer to your second floor bedroom as 01-180-2-L lol
  13. Buddy I thought the army was bad, but after reading this I can't hardly beleive you could put up with that stuff. At least we went off base most nights to play with our girlfriends.
  14. You would be amazed what actually happens underway.... people get away with a lot.
  15. I guess I was lucky to be in the Army but I did have the great pleasure of crossing the Atlantic twice on a ship and a one way trip across the Pacific. If I had a firearm I honestly believe I would have ended it all. I have never experienced anything like that in my life! The first trip was in January, 1963, The worst winter Germany had in 70 years. It took us 13 days to get to Bremerhaven and I was sick all the time. We finally got off the ship and I was so used to the motion from the ship that I was now sick all over again from not rocking and rolling. I have to hand it to all you Navy guys, you surely spent your time in Hell!
  16. This is still funny. I was AF too. This is the reason why. My Grandpa serve Navy during WWII Some of the stories. My son went Navy. He was told 100 guy leave on a tour and 50 couples come back:p. He looking to cross over to The "golf club" side when this hitch is up Dads not so dumb now.
