    Default Working With Dad

    My Dad was a security officer at a company security gate & I went with him sometimes.

    I just loved playing with the CCTV camera's.

    My mate sometimes came too & we got him dancing & mooning in front of camera's lol

    Fk know's what the company boss's thought if they played back the tapes lol We never thought of deleting the tapes lol


    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Never worked with dad officially. He was a caretaker at a local school. On the weekend, generally a Sunday, I would go to the school with him to be from under my mother's feet. The dog would also go for a walk there at the same time. I would sometimes help by cleaning/polishing the main hall floor. This was from the 1970s, through the 1980s.

    Couldn't have worked with dad. He worked in a factory that manufactured lead products. Sometimes had to take time off if his blood lead levels got too high 😮

    Did your dad have to wear specialised PPE?

    i guess he must have worn some sort of PPE, but it was the early 80's so maybe not as stringent as things are today.
