So I've been drinking most of the day. In which case I will rant/gob off because I can. What the fuck is actually acceptable in the NAAFI Bar? Most of my posts on ARRSE are in the NAAFI and whilst I take the pi$$ as much as the next man I like to think I am cheeky rather than offensive. I think of the virtual NAAFI bar as being the same as an actual NAAFI bar ... where chaps can drink their fill mixing with seniors and officers (when they dare to venture) and say what they think. Where the conversation is always of a nature that is risquÃ© but that there are always lines drawn in the sand that should not be crossed. Because in the real NAAFI, when those lines are crossed, the result is usually met with quick and effective violence. When I see on here people being exceptionally abusive about fellow servicemen (whether they are serving or retired) I cannot but wonder what would happen if they did that in a real NAAFI bar? When someone gobs off about anothers wife/children or, in my case, disability, I am pretty certain what would have happened to them outisde the vitual world. I can't help thinking that half those that post in the ARRSE NAAFI bar have never been in a real one and therefore don't understand the real etiquette of the place. Maybe they are trying to impress some of the older, cleverer and therefore more established members of ARRSE by trying to go one step further and therefore earn themselves credos? So, there you go ... my half cut thoughts and before some cunt posts 'this is the Naffi if you don't like it ...' bore off!
