I've been out of the Army for eight / nine years now and still have problems with dealing with people in seemed positions of authority. If anyone tries to tell me what to do I go out of my way not to, even if means cutting my nose off to spite my face or ending up going down a less profitable route. Is this normal.... the people I refer too are, Bank managers, anyone in uniform including the dibble, magistrates etc Example, I got stopped for not wearing a seatbelt a few weeks ago and given an on the spot fine and a producer, the copper emphasised that I had seven days to show documents and 28 days to pay the fine. I did neither, for no reason other than to be arsey even though it will cost me more..... I feel a small albeit silly victory against the system Is this normal? do any other Arsers have problems with jumped up cluster fcuks or am I just an obstenate arsehole?
