Not Speaking To Me

His workplace communication is limited to "Have you tried restarting it?" and "I'll have to refer this to the level 2 engineers".

I was thinking more along the lines of exhibiting massive overreaction to criticism and refusal to acknowledge the opinions of those with wider experience and greater skills.
 
When our company got taken over by Italians, they got a hard on for employing people who spoke Italian, no matter what role they were in.
It came to pass that I needed a new person dealing with dealers in the UK & ROI. We interviewed several candidates including a prospective new hire who was originally from Bari, S.Italy.
He spoke Italian, crap Spanish and heavily accented English. I told HR that our dealers, especially the regionals wouldn't understand him, but the plastic-titted bitch saw a feather in her cap and overrode me and my boss.
After a while, dealers started hanging up on him if he answered the phone, then ringing back in the hope of getting someone else. To make things worse, they were also doing that to another bloke on the section because he was a thick ****. One dealer actually told me that two of his people would phone simultaneously, the one getting a human continuing the call.
He was a two-faced, smarmy, lying little toad and I used to plan his demise on a daily basis.
It all came to a head when he went sick citing stress caused by management bullying (not me, my boss, who was nothing but nice to him, unlike me) and took the company to court. HR, of course paid him off, the spineless twats. We found out that he'd got a job up in Doncaster, which he'd started whilst 'sick', even moving up there.
 
Are you about to flounce?
It must be awful spending so much time amongst us posters on here who have served for Queen and Country and then gone on to have good careers outside of the military.....
What he said........... and Built up a thriving business, tucked away a few bob, paid off the mortgage, seen all our offspring grow up, find good partners, and do well for themselves...and like the majority of posters on this site, retire, owe NOTHING TO NOBODY, and have a wonderful and well earned retirement,( Army pension helps) reading and contributing to the site, while reading the wibble and total bollox of non serving irrelevant nobody's, who haven't the faintest idea as to the military mind-set, or its accomplishments. have a nice day. now FO!
 
By paragraph...

1. I would be playing but I need a break now and again and Amplitube 5 takes takes a bit of brain power because much has changed since 4 came out. The best way of not having to tax my brain too much is responding on here.

2. Buck's Fizz walt.

3. No. no. As I said I stand by everything I have ever written. Except the typos of course. I don't dig holes of course because I have staff for that kind of menial work. We are always looking for someone to help out by the way, which is one reason I post on this site, so if anyone is interested PM me. I like to think that by giving a former member of the armed forces a job, we are giving something back to society (and my accountant tells me we get a decent tax break), and yes they might not be able to read or write very well, or "do sums" at all, they are usually clean (thank God for mums eh?) and can usually dig holes and carry heavy things around, and so they get back a little self-respect after being told what to do for so long.

4. Why not. My posts are full of it! Loser!
My bold
On page 1 you were working for an IT company as a contractor or whatever.
In bold you're alluding to owning the company.
You wouldn't be the first to lie through their teeth about how successful they were on here.
You're a code monkey with no hiring or firing capacity.
Big timer.
 
We all work from home, so we only communicate electronically or on conference calls. Our boss (and other people who work on the team) know what he is like and what he is doing and are just as pissed off with him as I am.

I am not his official boss. In fact we do the same job, but I am also relatively new onto the team, whereas he has been there for well over a year. This is part of the problem because only he and I know how to do the technical aspects of the role.

I think what annoyed him was when I asked for the documentation that he should have been developing as part of his job, which he hadn't done. It has become clear that he hasn't been doing a lot of things he should have been doing and that is just coming to light. He has had a cushy time and now I have been employed and things are being looked at much more closely by me and our management.

I think it is the embarrassment of his being caught out, which is fair enough I suppose. I get that, but just going silent is pretty stupid and very infantile. It is that which made me curious whether it is a cultural thing from where he is from. I've just never come across it in men before (well not after leaving Primary School anyway).

I could have understood if he got arsy and mouthy, or even angry, but to refuse to talk or respond to written comms just seems a bit womanly.
Grass him up, the idle street shitter.
 
I'm a thick Loggie, I don't think ahead like that
You were Cavalry first.
We don't hold against you the fact that you bailed on us, along with the big loon from Sunderland, to the Rag And Oil Company, but I'm fairly certain that before you left the Bird would have shown you the correct way to administer nastiness to the cup or mess tin of unpopular troopies.
I know for a fact that the Canadian halfwit in charge of my troop had the mixed DNA of half the squadron and several wild animals every time he ordered a brew.

Many of you seem to think that I am embarrassed about previous posts.

I am not. I stand by everything I have written in the past.

Of course Londoner's were responsible for the initial Covid lockdown being imposed. It has become painfully clear. It happened with the latest lockdown as well. Look at the images of Oxford Street just before Christmas, and where the massive growth in the new variant took place. Londoner's think they are somehow more special than other people in the UK, when the reality is the are just "special". Just because there are a lot of you doesn't make you a benefit to the rest of the country. It just makes you akin to a rash.

(Take it to the Covid forum if you want to discuss further).

Just to be clear, I have never "served" because frankly I have never felt "servile". I am sure that some of you are submissive by nature and need to be dominated by others, or feel the need for others to tell you what to do. I think some of you are relieved that somebody else is taking responsibility for your lives. Not all of us are like that. Many people are capably of successfully running their own lives and don't need the re-assurance of someone else making the decisions for them - and yes I count myself in that number. Nor would I particularly enjoy living in the kind of poverty and squalor that many of you describe during your military careers. Anyone can be poor and dirty, but I see no need to volunteer for it. I am quite happy to have been in a comfortable, successful career earning a good deal of money in the IT departments of banking and financial organisations.

You know that old bit of doggerel about men who have never been soldier thinking less of themselves? Well it might not be welcome news to many of you, but it really isn't true. Few of us measure ourselves against others, and neither do we give a damn about your jobs, and anyone who big themselves up because they wear a special uniform when doing it, really needs to get a grip on their lives. It is unhealthy. As an example, Amazon and Eddie Stobart could probably do a more efficient and cost-effective job at running the militaries supply chain needs than they do themselves, so now I am sure some of you are purple with rage at judging themselves against a minimum-wage Amazon shelving-monkey or a lorry-driver who spends a significant portion of his wages on prostitutes.

Oh by the way, I am not stating every member of the military are poorly-educated half-wits with no social skills. Clearly there many who are fine, upstanding members of society, with good qualifications and able to speak in complete sentences. It's just there aren't that many of them in evidence on this site.

Some of you will be wondering why I post on here. Good.

Do you think I care if some of you have never had children, or have never gone through rough patches when bring them up, especially when they into their teenage years. Do I regret anything I have posted or feel humiliated when people bring it up? Nope. I suspect many of you have never had families due to a lack of motile sperm or low sperm counts and feel frustrated. In a way, I suppose it is a blessing that many of you have not reproduced because the shallow end of the gene pool has burst its banks anyway.

But we digress.

Like I say, I am not particularly bothered about what a poorly-educated, socially-inept inadequates who couldn't find work in the civilian job market think (which describes many of you, not all, but a significant number).

If this site was built as a portal so that you had to prove you were in the military before being allowed to access it for viewing and posting, the site traffic would be so low that the admins would probably have to shut it down as the advertising revenue wouldn't cover the costs of running it. That must really upset some of you. That the majority of people who keep this site viable were never in the military.

I also suspect that the majority of articulate, well-reasoned former members of the armed-forces would probably not appreciate having to spend much of their time on here with some of the thread's posters. I would suggest that having civilians on the site makes it a more tolerant place for them. Of course I don't expect agreement from the former, out of a sense of loyalty towards the latter, but it is probably more likely than not.

I'm going to continue posting on here, and I honestly don't care what your search skills pull back up. At worst, all it will lead to is being added to my ignore list not because you offend me or I feel embarrassed in any way, but simply because it smacks of a lack of imagination on your part. I don't care if you object to that. Your opinion of me is not something I lose any sleep about, and if some of you DO worry about what some strangers on the Internet think about you, again you need to grip on your life because normal people don't do that. If you really do worry about what others think about you, was that insecurity driven into you in the military, or are you just more drawn to the military lifestyle if you have that flaw in your character?

Just diverting the thread for a moment, can I point out that posting the same old things over and over again does lead me to think some of you really are starting to express symptoms of dementia. It's the same people who do it, just as they are the same people who post Monty Python quotes over and over. You really need to visit your GPs because you have forgotten you have already stated something, and doing so continuously, is something that needs looking into.

It's not something you should be embarrassed over, after all none of us is getting any younger.

I have no doubt that some will take this post as evidence of complaining (or whatever colourful words you wish to use instead), or of being drawn into your cunning trap by your ingenious logic and devious word-play. That would, of course, be a stunning lack of comprehension on your part driven by an extraordinary lack of self-awareness, not an accurate description of my message.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing this, and I hope it gets some of the usual suspects frothing at the mouth - "Servile! Servile!" - and so on. A massive meltdown from a number of you will be entertaining.
Well done for sticking to your guns and not backing down, despite the flak that you're receiving.
I'm sure there are others on here who will agree that that is admirable.
However, many of us didn't join the armed forces because we are servile, or not intelligent enough to sort our own lives out.
Most of us joined the armed forces because we wanted to blow things up and kill people.



Just wanted to clear that up.
 
....and pitchfork baby's...don't forget that as well!
How could I have forgotten that?
I apologise.
I also forgot to add administering GBH with pick helves to peaceful CND protestors and driving Challengers through picnic areas during school holidays.
 
Its at this point, that the perennial question must be asked...........Is this thread going to the OP's satisfaction.......?
He's a hugely successful civvy that has an accountant who does the books for his IT firm which he would love to recruit ex squaddies for. There is apparently tax breaks for taking on ex squaddies?

It cant be the same guy that's being shunned by a work colleague and has turned to a website full of ex squaddies to ask for advice on how to deal with the silent treatment from a petulant ethnic type.
He has previously asked for advice about knocking his son about because his son thinks he's a tragic little prick as well.
IIRC, his daughter is a lezza and in the bravery stakes telling people is on a par with being awarded a Victoria Cross.

Daughter is a Lezzer.

I am not fully conversant with all the details of the OP, as for the rug munching daughter, that is of no real interest, and his son openly admitting to his father ( Biological or hired in) as being a 24ct fur lined jewel encrusted, Olympic level, military grade prick, seems a bit overstated, but there seems to be a wife-girlfriend-mistress missing from the equation, it is quite vexing that we do not have a quote from him, about her.

I seem to remember that Deanol claimed his 'daughter' was training to be a doctor only to then join the army as a combat-medic.

I also recall some mention of Deanol's children being actually hallucinations brought on by his feelings of inadequacies at not make it past phase 1.
