Here we go then, I finally signed up to Arrse. The "welcome to arrse" email suggested posting in the "I'm a new member" thread but as I only really read the naafi bar stuff I figured I'd just let you lot have at me and be done with it! Been lurking for a while and really like the place. Bit about me so you know what to shout at........ Biological father was RAF and stationed in Germany, mother popped out to visit and I popped out while she was there. They split when I was about 5-6 yrs old, I recall him taking us to Wales on the odd holiday on his Daytona/sidecar combo but that's about all. Last time I saw him was him riding away and I don't know (or care) to this day what happened to him from then on. 1st Step-father was a cnut, coach driver and as wishy washy as a bloke could get without a sex change. 2nd step-father was ex-army, totally different deal, he was a bit of a twat in some ways but he taught me my work/life ethic. I have always got on with my work in the way the old man (that's 2nd step-father for the slow ones) worked, work hard, play hard and get it done. You can now all tell me to fuck off, call me a cnut or a walt or whatever and I will just laugh. You cnut's should be on TV, I can't recall how many times I have sat in the office laughing at threads on here when I should be working! And the final point before you need to ask....... No, I never did serve and I regret that massively, I'd have been a decent soldier I think, but at the time I didn't think I'd hack it! I'm too old now but fuck it, at least I can support H4H and (if you'll allow me) shoot some shit with you cnuts! Fire at wll!
