    I met a colleague many years ago that I had been to college with and we were talking about different shipping companies and I've always said that landline left to its own devices were pretty good at feeding you he was telling me the company he was with that on one ship the evening meal was just as likely to be beans on toast and only beans on toast so I think if you was with the wrong company you could probably find that there was an awful lot of money saved here there and everywhere

    Not all UCL second stewards were bad, but the bad ones were very bad.

    We had one with a double barreled name always in arrow with the head waiter a Dutch guy by the name of Bachousen.

    Most of the time it was about dry tea of which there was always a shortage more so if in the tourist gallop there was only one sitting.
    But heaven help the tourist blood who wanted a poached egg or scrambled egg for breakfast.
    Fried or boiled no worries, but for the other we had to get a chit from the head waiter to take to the galley, all care of this second.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.
