Hard At Work
...or hardly working!

This photo of John shows him working at the Daily Mirror.
The photo of the girl wearing a mini-skirt was published in
the daily paper in 1976.
John had the difficult task of lettering "Bring Back The Mini"
on a pair of her knickers.
To make the job easier, she asked John if she could take them off for him.

Tom that is disgusting, I am not going to fall into that trap. I imagine you will get some flack from the women, and serves you right thats what I say.

One ad' agency that I worked for used to give us a weekly supply of uppers. It looks as if John had to make do with downers.

Jim for once I am agreeing with you, I shall not say any more except there are jokes and there are lines one doesn't cross. John did you know a chap called Harry Mclelland while you were at the mirror, He was irish, over 6 foot and broad, very strong in the union and used to threaten to kneecap people he disliked, all bluff he was a big softie. My parents always had the mirror and I will have nothing else. Particularly Murdochs papers, after what he did to his workforce at the Sun.

Hi ,yes
totally tastless I removed it,see what happens when Sue leaves town,my mind goes in the gutter.

JohnB said...

No,I didn't know him Yvonne.
We always had the Mirror, when we were kids the only strips we looked at were the comic strips.

jim davis said...

Forget it Tom we all make mistakes, and you are man enough to admit yours so that's that.

jim davis said...

By the way Tom It didn't offend me, I just thought I would tell you that.

crawler!

Tommy said...

Come on Yvonne be nice,I was the one who screwed up not Jim.See what happens when you leave us alone for a few days.

There is nothing wrong with crawling if it gets you what you desire. What young man getting very aroused in the company of a pretty young woman, has not resorted to crawling to get what he wants. Just take yourself back in time Yvonne. ( KEN.) "Oh come on Yvonne please, Pleeease."( YVONNE.) "No I told you I'm not like that".( KEN.) "But darling I love you so much it is almost too hard to bear," (excuse the pun) (Yvonne) "Do you love me Ken really love me?' (Now this is the clincher. (KEN) " Oh! I love you so much it hurts me." That's it, job done, you are now all over him like a rash. So tell me what is wrong with a bit of crawling once in a while?

How many pairs of trousers do you get through in a week Jim. I should have known everything always comes back to sex with you
Ken and I couldnt have acted like that as we had to have a chaperone when we went anywhere, and Brian wouldn't have put up with that nonsense. You are probably describing what you got up to when you were younger. and Tom yours is a case of, When the cats away=====I am never hard on Jim only when he deserves it, which, (let me think) is 95% of the time.

JohnB said...

Did anyone of you ladies ever wear a mini-skirt??

yvonneh said...

Now JohnB why would you want to know that. I used to be a sheltered housing officer and one of my elderly tenants used to come to the door with a pair of scissors as my mini skirt had buttons down the front, he always threatened to cut them off and believe it or not his name was Jim. That of course was when I was sylph like and weighed 9 stone. My dad used to say that if you pulled the plug out of the bath I would go down with the water, these days the water cant get passed me.

yvonneh said...

And no JB I wouldn't have let you draw on my nbks.

jim davis said...

I liked the flared skirts that were very popular, well with me at least. I alway used to stand back, and let a girl wearing one of those go up to the top deck in front of me. Wasn't I good?

JohnB said...

Does any else have an old photo of themselves at work?
If so send them to Tommy, then we can all see them.

JohnB said...

Just one more thing...remember to whistle while you work.
