Flight of the Navvagatty

The Boss : "Where's Navva Gattys?" [my best guess at phonetic reproduction there]

Here's me : "How do you spell it?"

The Boss, with disdain and impatience : "As it sounds."

Here's me, with a total lack of self control :"Fuck! haha ha! I fucking doubt it!"

The Boss is looking through the biblical document that is Lloyd's Loading List, unable to find the port she seeks within it's pages. I spend a few minutes falling about laughing before asking again:

"No, really, how do you spell it?"

The Boss : "As it SOUNDS. N-A-V-I-G-A-T-E. "

I've turned a funny purple colour from suppressed laughter now. She's still trying to find it on the map.


  1. You have completely vanished from Facebook without so much as a by-your-leave. I congratulate you and reprimand you in equal measures. Tina x

  2. Please do not stop posting about this quite clearly poor deranged bovine that is your boss as I have just read every single post on here and I'm loving it!

  3. I almost wet myself going through these, and had tears of laughter in my eyes on more than one occasion.
    Keep up the good work dude, for as long as you can handle working with her anyway.

  4. I hope you haven't left this job. I usually have to watch The Office for this type of entertainment.

  5. Aw, I didn't realize this hadn't been updated since August. First, no Fuck You no Silent Koala. Bad day!

  6. Koala was just... ahem.. takin' a break. :)
