I'd ring him back myself, but then again I prefer to wind people up personally... unfortunately it appears that even the occassional (ahem) cock manages to become a badge, withthat attitude it never does any harm to be taught a little humility, if you don't feel up to the task then by all means recruit a sympathetic orificer type' for a badge I`d go for at least an LE Major
I come in to work today to do some out of hours work to find an absoloute screamer of a message from the RSM of a Training Regt, apparently I had been put through to the wrong number. Simple enough, if he had picked up the phone I would have aplogized for bothering the man. But this guy's message was a really bloody rude, totally out of order, disproportionate and uncalled for.

Some regulars dislike TA soldiers because they are part time, but then treat them as if they are full time soldiers whenever they speak to them in their own time. Phone a TA soldier at home or at work during the week or weekend when he is not at TA, is he a soldier of civillian? He is not getting paid to be screamed at, yelped at or in any other way, be trated like a cnut. If on the other hand the TA soldier should always be treated as such then all complaints about him being part time become invalid.
I think you misunderstand something here, The RSM wont care he's upset you, that's a given, you'll certainly get no apology, I got locked up years ago by an RSM for something I hadn't done and when he discovered his mistake, he jailed the lad responsible and made him apologise to me while we shared a cell, he still didn't let me out on the basis I'm from the North East, therefore a Cunt. The RSM will just see you as a Civvy Cunt trying to stitch him up and will more likely than not react appropriately. I'd just leave it and write to the mess manager and ask them to ring you reference your cheque.
