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:

  1. I have just phoned Sky to cancel my TV package. When I finally spoke to the guy and told him I did'nt need it, he asked why?

    I told him I was going to Afghanistan and would therefore not be watching a lot of telly, the thick C**T then asked "if I was going abroad to Afgwanirstaaan for work or a holiday"

    Unfeckingbelevable!!!!

  3. I had more emails/phone calls/mail from the tw@ts after I cancelled than during the whole time I was with them!

    Threatened them for harrassing me in the end - seemed to work!

    Greedy c0cks...
     
  4. Glad I was not drinking, bastard. :lol:

    Glad to see one of the country's most recognised brands is in touch with current events and supporting our Armed Forces. Perhaps the role of a sales person at Sky Towers doesn't include watching their own News channel.

    Was this him?

    Its not that much of a surprise you were asked 'business or holiday' to be honest.

    After all, there are so many British citizens going off frequently for 'holidays' in Afghanistan for a 'religious pilgrimages'.

    At least thats what they say when they get picked up by the U.S. Forces with fellow Talibs, having been 'captured' and 'forced' across the border from Pakistan.

    Especially if you consider the location of most call centres.
