Cab drivers are not the same as movers.There’s good and bad in everything and some, given a little authority, let it go to their heads and forget their manners. I had a Chinook loady break my ECM antennas, but then a Chinook picked me up when I was injured and was instrumental in saving my life. The thing is that it’s the negative tales that make the best dits.
I did find it strange that I could fly from Bastion to a task with a bag full of explosives, yet wasn’t allowed to when flying from Kandahar to Bastion, mine is not to reason why, but others will bitch like err little bitches.
I've hated every single one I've been on. Although the big white one with dayglo red chevrons on the belly that pulls me out of the drink come that inevitable day may be briefly patted in a slightly friendly manner as I exit when it's back on the ground.Cab drivers are not the same as movers.
I for one have never met a helicopter I didn't like (although a Czech HIP came close)
Honestly? Sadly I could write you a book on it. But then I am a grumpy ugly bastard and I tend to bring out the worst in people.I’m in no way doubting the veracity of this tale but this has to be a mover/copper/rock ape thing. I, (like many other crab techs etc) interacted with the Officers and men of all three services completely professionally and without drama. I can’t recall one single event where that kind of behaviour was displayed or tolerated. It’s a shame to hear that it went on.
No, truxx he definitely would get a “Sir” without a shadow of a doubt. Which is how you should have been referred to if warranted or commissioned.Were you an RAF mover?
Why would I want any bravery awards? I just wanted to go home.
A Group Captain would have got a "sir"
Then again maybe not.
Like I sayNo, truxx he definitely would get a “Sir” without a shadow of a doubt. Which is how you should have been referred to if warranted or commissioned.
Edited for gash english
Does forcing people to call you Sir make your wee wee go hard?RAF mover manning a baggage x ray machine at Split airport
"You have a pistol in your bag"
"Its supposed to be wrapped in hessian!"
"Its supposed to be wrapped in hessian Sir"
"Its supposed to be wrapped in hessian siiiir"
"it is. Only you cant see that because of the X Ray"
"It has to go in the hold"
"It didn't get here in the hold"
"How did it get here"
"How did it get here Sir"
"How did it get here Siiiir"
"In my pocket"
"Well it needs to go in the hold"
Some time later standing looking at an empty carousel in Brize.
"Excuse me Corporal are you in charge?"
"I will settle for a Yes Sir if that's OK Corporal. Now, where is my pistol?"
"Should be in your baggage......Sir"
An hour later and a dig around in the bowels of the tristar I am reunited with my pistol and heading home.
"Waits one hour"Depends what rank you are.
He or she would prolly not have fretted about itA Group Captain would have got a "sir"
Then again maybe not.
After the first pull I'd have used "Sir" lots, to the degree that you became aware I was taking the piss.Like I say
I am quite objectionable.
I have also had movers under command so am aware that most try.
And more to the point... you work at sea as well and...We don't want you bloody 'aproposing' with wild abandon in the middle of a north sea windmill farm now do we?Apropos of being....
Careful now- You've already overdone the usage of this word.
There does seem to be a high turnover of loonies at the moment. Robme and shockwave are also rather quiet and I haven't seen Bugsy post anything for what feels like weeks.the OP has gone remarkably quiet.
