Corrupted By ARRSE

#1
Now look here, I am a decent civilised chap.
But I have been corrupted by arrse.

Can't say where I work now, but yesterday we got a 999 call....

Someone stuck half way up a cliff.......

Nothing too unusual here. .. do a bit of routine "cliff team work" to get him down or we can get the helo in to do a winch job and lift him off the cliff face. Routine stuff. No problem.

Stern professional faces. Search and Rescue Co-ordination taking place. Britain At Its Best.

Then we discover that the "stuckee" stuck halfway up the cliff is afflicted with Downs Syndrome.
Much serious professional discussion about "rotor wash", "induced fear", "making him nervous", "danger of falling", etc...

Then I say...
"But we could lower an ice cream from the helicopter, that will stop him falling."

Utter collapse of serious discussion. Total agreement .. "that will work".

Another example of the insidious work of arsse.. "changing lives and attitudes around you."

Has anyone else had their work attitude changed by what they read on arrse ?
