  1. Where have all the jobs gone that were advertised? There were loads and now all gone! Have all the posts been filled?

    Maybe this is why!

    "The new Minister of Labour and Immigration Ahmed Hassan El-Borai
    declared that Egypt will stop issuing work permits for foreigners in the
    coming period, offering Egyptian workers a hope for jobs in this new
    Reading the article it seems more aimed at foreigners who are UNDERCUTTING Egyptian wage rates (which actually surprises me but then I guess I don't have a feel for how many Sudanese for example are here) but possibly it has been issued as a blanket ban for now.

  3. Could not open article but certainly interesting. Did it mention schools at all?

    It doesn't mention schools at all - but maybe it's been applied as a blanket ban for now?
    Would explain why every single job has been zapped, they can't all be rescinding resignations!

    "El-Borai announced yesterday that "It’s better for Egypt if locals have
    work in their country,” although he did add that the government may
    still grant work permits to highly-skilled foreigners with rare

    Looked like skilled teachers will be OK, I would not like to be doing an un-skilled job like shower checking in Egypt now.
  7. What's this shower-checking thing you're all going on about?

    It's an attempt to belittle PE teachers by saying that they are unqualified and all they do is check on the showers / make sure the students are taking showers.
    Or perhaps he is suggesting that all PE teachers are paedophile voyeurs who get their kicks from looking at little children in the shower?
    Looks like he's been on the gin, again [​IMG]
  9. Yes, and did this about two years ago, got ill for a while (he told us this - how thoughtful) and has come back with the same witty line. I have probed him several times [​IMG] about his fear/dislike of PE teachers and, as he was good at sport, football,rugby (up to count level! Impressive.) and so forth and I can only conclude that he was rogered senseless by the 'Bullet' of his day.
    He should have just said 'no', eh?

    I have never said that all shower checkers are peadophiles or that all shower checkers are voyeurs.

    I have never said that all shower checkers get their kicks by looking at little children in the shower.

    I have never said that all shower checkers are unqualified.

    I have told you all, many times that I do not use alcohol.
    Now it's Foamy's turn.

    Not 2 years ago, do you have probems with the passage of time?

    I have dealt with my illness.

    And then you let your posting fall into allegations of sexual abuse( it seems to always be close to the suface with you and your cronies)

    Let me assure you that I have never been and, I hope, never will be rogered.

    You seem to be implying that any person that love shower checkers has been rogered by one. Do you roger every student that does not PE, or do you think that evry student who does not like PE should be rogered.

    Do you stop rogering when they say no!
  11. Oh......a shower checker is a PE teacher.
    So what derogatory terms might there be for Physics teachers? Just interested.

    Now may be an excellent time to start.

    Meteor shower checkers? Or would that would be more for Astronomy teachers?
  14. ..Uranus checkers... [​IMG]
    Do you know what Bibbles? You might not be a bad sort; bit obsessed about the shower thing joke (clearly your only one..) or a making snide, damning comments about being down the ACE club, drinking beer, socialising, meeting new people and having a laugh - nasty stuff that - way below the belt.
    How about I won't comment on any of your deficiencies if you promise not to mention shower checkers and 'your f*****g illness' again?
    Not that that leaves you much....
    Oh, and please take wrldtrvlr123's advice and get some 'p7ss' into you...even priests and nuns take a bit of grog occasionally.

    Well in college, one was referred to as 'The Stinking Manimal' (he had BO, gingivitus and more hair than your average Silverback), another as 'that boring *** with the stupid umbrella' (an umbrella with '***, Il Pleu'). Generically I'd go for:
    Cat Boxer or Mary Bale (the women from Cov who dropped the cat in a Wheelie bin) named for the most ridiculous thought experiment ever (only a Physicist could come up with that one)

    I used to work in an offy where the equivalents of Father Jack and his nun equivalent came in every day for a bottle or two of vodka. Best was Sunday morning when the only nun under 25 I have ever seen used to come in to buy crisps for all the Sunday school kids - ever seen 'Nacho Libre'? Think the nun in that but with a Scottish accent.
  17. "meteor shower checkers" - that's very clever
    "Uranus checkers" - that's very funny
    "The stinking manimal" - that's very accurate

  18. I have just realised that you do not remember me from the Ace, have you still not understood the reason you meet lots of new people?

    Is your idea of "Having a laugh" waiting for hours, for your mates to show up, we were the group that used to drop in for a quick drink and laugh at you, do you remember us now?

    bigfatgit Occasional commenter

    That's an interesting post! Seeing as you've not contributed to this thread, why would he remember you? Unless, of course, you've used the wrong log-on by mistake!
    Bbibbler used to get mixed up with that one and midlifecrisis but he had had a heart attack around that time so we'll maybe let him off with that one
    By the way, I think you've mixed FP up with someone else
  20. Landingstrip and Bobbler same person? You chat away to yourself.
    Us! Now you really do have a problem....
    Really, just remembered? Ah, I see.
    Why were you laughing, by the way?
