The Final Yard Of The Final Mile [Jan. 24th, 2006|09:44 pm]
Tony Grist
Joe got a call this morning from a woman who said (in so many words) "Come over to Catterick, sign a piece of paper, trouser your last pay check and you'll no longer be in the army."

At last.

So he's going to do those things tomorrow.

if i had to guess blind, i'd say to put it in your trousers... kind of like to "pocket" something.

That's right. It's a slang phrase.

And after that, the next thing is to find a job.

How about going back to school? Is that an option? Would he like to do that?

He's been through so much. I wish him good fortune and a job he will enjoy.

He wants to get married- and for that he's going to have to work.

But he's not really the academic type. He went to agricultural college on leaving school and dropped out after a year.

I'm very happy for him, that this long nightmare is ending at last.

And that he's in love and is young.

Is there a career he's interested in that offers on-the-job training?

He wants to be a fitness instructor- and is doing a course that will give him the requisite qualification.

In the mean time he's sending out applications hither and yon for all sorts of different jobs.
