Has Dogmeat served

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.
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)

Cool story Bro.

However, putting a chopsy RAF mover in his place wont win you any bravery awards.
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.
 
Has @dogmeat served? Probably yes but really, who gives a flying fcuk his contributions are generally amusing...

So why the fcuk does it matter

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.

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.
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.

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.

Like I say

I am quite objectionable.

I have also had movers under command so am aware that most try.

Fast forward to, I think, 2006 and another pistol moment. I am flying out to Italy civair, tooled up, from Gatwick on a Sunday evening.

"Don't worry Sir we do this all the time. Just rock up, tell them who you are, tell them you are carrying and it will all be squared away."

Oh yes. Hell of a plan.

I rock up, they know nothing about it and all hell breaks loose.

I am escorted to a secure place where I am put in the hands of security, who happen to be Group 4.In comes a chap in charge. Ex full screw from the Tank Transporter Regt it transpires.

He makes it his mission to sort it out. Security, it seems, is centred at Heathrow which is where my clearances are. Locked in the office there. Because it is Sunday.

So off he goes like a mad thing getting everything cleared for me.

An hour and a half later I am driven out to the still-waiting aircraft in a ground crew van. Up the steps two at a time and propelled to a row of seats emptied of other pax. All of whom who have sat for an hour and a half waiting and are now looking in my direction wondering who the fcuk I am.

Cpl Sivyer (retd) I salute you!
 
RAF mover manning a baggage x ray machine at Split airport

"You have a pistol in your bag"

"correct"

"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"

"Sir"

"Siiir...."

Some time later standing looking at an empty carousel in Brize.

"Excuse me Corporal are you in charge?"

"Yup"

"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.
Does forcing people to call you Sir make your wee wee go hard?
 
Depends what rank you are.
"Waits one hour"
A Group Captain would have got a "sir"

Then again maybe not.
He or she would prolly not have fretted about it

After the first pull I'd have used "Sir" lots, to the degree that you became aware I was taking the piss.

Apropos of being deliberately intended to wind Supermatelot up...

Apropos of being....


Careful now- You've already overdone the usage of this word.
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?


Curb your usage...you've overdone it...kicked the tits well out of it.

Search function condemns you...a hanging matter if I had my way.

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.

I'm glad NI ex medic has stepped in as duty mong, it's been quite amusing.

Edit - I forgot Photex and his struggle with reality in the America a bit odd thread, he's gone quiet as well. Did he say he was Irish or am I imagining that?

last time looked it was all the rage.

but the again you stackers were always quite keen on first names.
Personally I liked to concentrate on the job.

All those blokes who didnt respect you enough to call you Sir, but at least you made them, that will change the world.
