Home again from a road trip; did 1,246 miles in 4 days. What a drive! A roads and below only; I only used motorways from about Doncaster on the way home today.

Sounds like epic fun times though!

Certainly was; and it was 4 days of sunshine too! No rain at all so the roof was only up when I stopped for the nights.

Definitely sounds like an awesome trip, was glad when I got back from Paris today, it was that hot over there I felt like I was melting lol!

Oh god that’s the worst! According to the car it reached over 30 degrees C at times over here; it must have been well over that in France! How long until you’re back away again?

I think we hit 36 one day, but it was at least 30 every day! Back to work on Wednesday

Jeez; 36! That’s a bit on the warm side for me haha! You only just got back didn’t you? How long are your trips?

Yeah was way too hot! Only do 3 weeks about, pretty good really

3 weeks? That’s nothing compared to the 12 weeks I do at a time! But I do have it easier on a cruise ship and all. :-)

Lol no chance i would ever work on a cruise ship, had enough of pax on the ferries! I think by the time we’ve done so many boardings and endured shit weather 3 weeks is about the limit

I saw a lot more of passengers when I was a cadet than I do now I’ve qualified, mostly because I don’t have to go into passenger areas for the whole trip if I don’t want to any more! Not that I mind; some of them have interesting tales to tell.

Yeah we just used to get idiots on the ferries. Ma’am where are we going? Well let me think sir, you boarded in Dover, and this is a glorified fucking bus service to the shit hole of France so where the frick frack do you think were going?!? Aaaargh every single day lol

On a cruise ship that’s what the hotel lot are for; getting asked all those questions! The deckies and engineers get asked much more important questions, like “Do you live on the ship?” and “If you’re here who’s driving?” (They get asked a lot!)

Haha somebody was temping with us a few trips back and he was talking about hosting dinner tables, and some Americans asked him who’s driving? And his response was oh shit, thanks for reminding me and legged it totally something I would do

That’s brilliant! Shame I can’t use that to get out of things; we’re only allowed to drive for a short time to test the systems work properly once every few months. I don’t even want to know what questions the passengers ask the hotel lot.

Somebody needs to compile a book of all the stupid stuff pax say lol, if only for my amusement :)

I think there’s a quotes book on every ship in P&O for the deckies and engineers of the stupid things that has been said. A memorable one from me was one of the generators was down for maintenance and it had been for nearly 2 months so; without thinking; I asked “what’s up with that generator?” As soon as I said it I knew it would be in the book before end of handover.

Haha you should be proud to make the book with that! You definitely need to steal a copy :)
