From my mum when I qualified as a secondary school teacher aged 23 - "if you're drunk in the clubs (she knows me so well) and the sixth form girls come to talk to you - sit on yopur hands and you'll still have a job on monday". Saved my career every friday night !!

After reading a certain thread on this very forum, some advice comes to mind from an 'old hand' when i was a young probationer, in a then 'male' only job,
it was 'NEVER, EVER, BITE', because if you do, you will be continually be fed 'BAIT',
how true is this, but some people just can't help themselves.

Maybe... but can you imagine how dull this forum would be if nobody ever baited, or bit?

Shit... did I just bite? Or is this baiting? It's all so confusing! :lol:

Agree totally, advice was more work place related, the opposite is about right on forums, i'll hold my hands up for baiting, but Surf Fuerte, did he really take it that personally?
i see he's deleted all the posts, or is it a wind up? :lol:
