Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I dunno, sounds to me like a typical army day/thing.. what's the problem?

    This is what is considered ' bullying' under new workplace guidelines.

    1] physically abusing or threatening abuse
    2] yelling or using profanity
    3] making obviously offensive jokes, spoken or by e-mail
    4] intruding on another's privacy by pestering, spying or stalking
    5] spreading malicious gossip
    6] undermining or deliberatly impeding another's work
    7] removing areas of responsibility without cause
    8] constantly changing work guidlines
    9] critizing a person consistently
    10] belittling another's opinions
    11] setting 'impossible' deadlines
    12] assigning unreasonable duties
    13] witholding necessary information or purposely giving wrong information
    14]blocking applications for training, leave or promotion.

    what a bunch of pussy-whipped softies and namby-pamby whiners there are out there these days...[ oops, my bad...]
  2. Sounds like a typical day on ARRSE to me!
  3. Sounds like a typical day at work to me!
  4. Sounds like everything Mrs DD does to me on a daily basis. Should I sue?
  5. So thats were they got the idea for my parenting manual, seems perfectly reasonable to me. The only thing missing is the redistribution of sweeties...
  6. I thought she'd died in a bizarre three-way shoot out with her mother and your mother? You don't mean to tell me that other thread wasn't strictly factually accurate? :D
  7. Looks like the same guidlines that have been around for years advising soldiers on what constitutes bullying or abuse. Just never seen it written down in a list like that.
  8. Well i've been in work for 4.5 hours so far tonight and I can honestly say apart from No's 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, & 14 the rest just hasn't stopped here.

    Probably like most workplaces in the country, it's known as banter
