Institutionalisation, myth or fact

#1
Guten Abend,

As my partner of over 5 years has recently done one and taken our kids at present (house and cars to follow, WAIT OUT) and squarely blamed me for being institutionalised as the main reason, I was wondering what you good people of ARRSE think of yourselves, are you institutionalised or merely sane in a mad, mad world?

P.S.
Please no tears or gnashing of teeth/beating of breast for me, i really am not worth it (apparently!)

I reckon that I am institutionalised. The chaos and seeming apathy of civilian life drives me crackers. People throwing rubbish away willy-nilly, standing in and in front of doors, their inability to walk in a sensible way etc. etc. My agitation at possibly being late, saying what I mean and hearing people waffle etc. etc.

Guess I have had my brain programmed differently to the majority of the population. Therefore I think I am institutionalised.

One example of my state of mind, is her Grandmothers Funeral. I was asked at the last minute if my dark coloured car could be used as part of the Cortege. Because I spent the best part of 4 hours cleaning it (it wasn't brand new and the kids used it as a bin, it was her car) she said she 'needed' me. I was more concerned about rocking up in a shit hole of a car as part of her Grandmothers last journey.

I should probably be in some kind of caring institution, with rubber walls.

I'm not institutionalised, I just have higher standards than your average civvy.

As for the car, I would have made sure it was presentable as well, she seems to be the one with the problem. I say again, I am NOT instiutionalised - out

Edited to add: house, kids, car...you're lucky, when mine buggered off she took my best mate and the dog too!

Cheers for that caarps, you're a godsend !
No problems mate, and no you are not institutionalised (god that’s a handful). We just have higher standards and morals than the civvie c*nts

My aim is to retire straight into the Chelsea pensioners then I will never have to be one of them (weak plan I know, but it’s the only one I have got :D :D )

I have thought of doing that too (seriously) which is why I am wondering if I really am institutionalised. The Damn place would run a lot better (country/world) if it was run on a military basis. I know that may offend some people, but hey, things are not running smooth in the liberal way that things are being run at the moment.

I was travelling through the port of Dover last Sunday and everything was a complete cluster, from passport control to queuing to loading the boat.

I was sat there (grinding my teeth) moaning about how if it was the military in charge everything would be so more controlled and orderly over & over. Missus told me to shut up in the end

[quote="CAARPS].... the civvie c*nts..... I will never have to be one of them [/quote]

Been out almost 9 years and I'm still not "one of them", I'm an Ex squddie and always will be

Logical joined up thinking and just getting on with what requires doing is not something most non military people are used to. The fact that you can instantly separate the wheat from the chaff and begin making beer confuses them. Don't even start the walking-in-a-straight-line thing.

So to recap, a teensy bit of road rage (where necessary) an ickle bit of institutionalisation, followed swiftly by posting in the wrong forum is no grounds to destroy a family?????
it's neither of the above, maybe having high standards and expecting the same from other road users could be the problem.

you didn't used to make her stand by her bed and do room inspections did you? it pissed my ex off no end :D

Didn't do room inspections but took me a while to stop calling a wardrobe a locker. I know they are a strange breed and all that, but there is something else missing out the jig saw, No one else is involved, just things don't add up. It doesn't help that she's doing a Degree in sociology/psychology either, kind of makes her think she knows what she's on about in her own head I suppose

She's not the RSM FFS, a funeral's not a Sovereign's Parade, the undertaker isn't going to check that you polished the back of the rear view mirror. Priorities mate, Lardbeast got it right. You were just focussing on the wrong thing that day. Blame it on the emotion of the moment, apologise and beg her to come back.

Then make her life insufferable in a thousand tiny ways and get her to leave, change her identity and hope you never catch up with her. That way you get to keep the house and the car.
