    One of the first things you learn as a deck officer is that if you walk around with a clipboard occasionally glaring at people / random objects NO ONE will ever come near you.

      Or walk around with a box in your hands.

      Nobody will ask you to do anything, the smaller the box the more important the contents.

        Yes this.

        My favorite used to be my confidential & secret material musters. Most of my senior command had never been responsible for anything comms related so were always scared of my 'Muster in Progress - Keep Out' sign on my closed cabin door.

          That doesn't stop you having to go to the passie entertaining stuff though does it?
          I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

          All posts here represent my own opinion and not that of my employer.

            Not really, you normally get hunted down, the only exception I found was at safety officer level everyone knew you were working your nuts off so much already you normally get a free pass from the weekly cocktails etc
            Pilotage - It's just a controlled allision

              The only time I got away with not going on formal night was because a tender was hanging off the side of the ship - although captain was using same excuse...

                So has anybody got anything else to add to the OPs question rather than ribbing each other? It was a sincere one and I gave my opinion, but that is only the view of what I have seen and what I know.
