OK. This is my confession on those little things you may or may not do at work when nobody is looking.

I find when a good 70's tune comes on the radio, I unconsciously start dancing on the steps/hop-up. Glad to have that one out.

That's (one) of mine. Anyone brave enough to follow? :cheers:

Mines along the same lines but being a Yorkshire lad I change the odd words of the songs to "sithi" and "tha nos"

A typical song would be "you to me are everything, the sweetest song that I could sing, oh babby! Oh babby!"

Another that tickled my old boss and me was a song by the trogs which now goes like

"I want to spend my life with a girl like you
Pa pa pa pa pa - and haddock".

He used to have a lad working for him that ended lots of words with "uncle". Brown was bruncle and his favourite one was chuckle casseruncle.

20 years or so ago, 3 of us often used to work together on jobs and we used to have some laughs.

I can remember sitting outside at snap time one summer day and all of us rolling on the lawn laughing. The type of laughter when you can't stop and your ribs hurt and tears running down the cheeks.

Really good for the soul that kind of day at work I always think.

Used to work with a boy in the 80's who thought he could sing. His favourite was Midge Ure.

"If I was
A sensible man
Ah wouldna be
A f***in painter"



Still can't listen to that song seriously.

Me and my pal were working on a new housing estate back in the eighties and we would always try and frighten each other by hiding in cupboards and jumping out and that sort of thing. Anyway one day my mate is in this detached house looking out the window waiting for me to enter while he hid behind a door. He saw me coming up the path and got into position ready to jump out, unfortunately an elderly lady arrived to view the property so I ushered her up the path and she entered the house first to find a big bearded bloke jump out screaming at her. I thought I was going to die of laughter, I was rolling on the floor, sides splitting while my mate was apologizing profusely, the poor old woman was shaken up so much we had to sit her down and get her a cup of tea.

Had some great laughs on building sites, we were on one site and we used to play tricks on the site agent. One day he went into the show house and left his size 11 wellington boots outside the front door, we swapped them for an identical pair but in a size 7 and hid behind a wall and watched him struggling to get them on, scratching his head looking totally puzzled as to why his feet had grown in the space of twenty minutes.
