In ten words or less, what fcuks u off in the services

#1
:evil: Lack of appreciation for new Ideas!

Next!

civi companies running our messes.

The adoption of business speak by (mostly) staff officers and those who wish to curry favour with 'the management'.

Too much fawning over politicians who visit ships and units. A salute is a mark of repect too far for 99% of them. Although, unless I was seeing things, last time Bliar went to Iraq, the welcoming party didn't wear headgear so no salutes. A change of policy or aircraft safety?

Adoption of US rank pins when working with the US Armed Forces. Let the Septics learn what our badges mean. The Navy is easy when they stick to stripes!

People who don't read orders! How many words? :wink:

Certainly agree with the 'adoption of business speak'. They're all at it. It's a shame that most can 'talk the talk', but either can't or refuse to 'walk the walk'.

Civvies running Messes.

Civvies in any job where a Tom can do it better and is more accountable.

Civvies in any job apart from the pan bash actually.

Army Legal Services.

The lack of Sqn/Coy bars.

NAAFI's 'shadow' over the the Services abroad.

The crap pay that dependants receive in Germany in comparison with locals doing the same job.

LE Officers doing the 'Landed Gentry' thing

Council estate Officers doing the 'Landed Gentry' thing.

The constant onslaught of Political Correctness.

Bluffers.

Estate wardens.

Getting wheeled out to put on demonstrations for visitors.......if you wanna see what I do.........feel free to pop in and watch me at work.

But Baddass the garden that DHE have given me is huge - surely that entitles me to "Landed Gentry" status as an LE Officer!

Spot on...and linked to 'creeping expectation'..i.e.

give a bloke a 10 minute phone card and he wants 20, give him 20 he wants 30 etc etc

Blokes on TELIC 1 (mainly remfs and crabs) demanding to know when the aircon was being fitted, and why they couln't have sattelite TV in their bashas,,,

Sorry, do we still have a military? I was under the impression we are now the mildy violent wing of the civil service.


Anything that has Defence (DHFS etc) in front of it. Thats very Japenese. They were told they could only have a defence force after the war.


All of the above thats already be mentioned.

Seen it in my last place........'SODEXHO Defence Services'........written over on of those big wheelie bins.

I thought there might be a platoon of jocks basha'd up in there or an OP or the likes, so I chucked my rubbish bag over the back fence.

Maybe they'll design one with a turret on it.

SODEXHO Defence Services........my arrse!

Wankers who take advantage of their rank and position to get out of shitty jobs that the soldiers can't avoid and still expect to get respect from them.

Crap equipment that's light years behind what civvies have

Not having enough vehicles to deploy the Unit properly.

Civvies running messes who shut the dining room bang on time

Best stop there before I get into trouble........ :)
