Nope. Not a German U-boat numbered 40.
In my life this had 2 meanings.
I’d just turned 18, been kidnapped from London by my own father and forced to live back with the parentals – on the condition that I got a job and paid rent!!!!!
Where Did I Go Wrong? (UB40 song)
I got a job and paid rent.
In my day it was called the DHSS. Department of Health & Social Security. AKA THE DOLE OFFICE.
Just off Chip Alley in Skegness.
UB40 was the form that you had to hand over before you got your weekly unemployment/dole cheque.
UB40 was also a band at that time.
