Military Service Counts or Nothing in UK

#1
Anyone had any annoying experience, making contact with the Post Office Call Centres? , local Councils, Social?

I'm trying to come back up after a bad time, and can only manage to get a Post office account at the moment. To satisfy the local Council that I am indeed a war pensioner and not getting overpaid, I had to contact the Post Office.

Post Office call centre?....Helpful...a bit, efficient... certainly. Polite, friendly, NO. Dismissive, arrogant and deserving a kick up the ass? definitely.

It seems that service, hard times and status. resulting from HMF service make most people think you're a loser.

While we're at it, anyone about to see the local Council for the first time, good luck....Civvies....d#ckheads half of them.

DEVONMAN sorry to hear that you are having a bad time. Perhaps I was lucky when I was discharged in 1993 the young girl at Midland Bank as it was then said to me ' Mr F.....as you have spent 22 years looking after us, it is our turn to look after you' so far they have done a good job.

However, on the whole amongst certain section of society I have found that Military service counts for nothing.

It may be a good idea to have a word with your local MP, even if think he/she is a cnut...good luck
