Really any need?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Just back from the AFCO where a young corporal (navy or RAF) just gave me abuse because i asked for an information DVD.
    I explained that i have a visit to the local unit and would like some more information.

    They had a quick look and i said, to not cause anymore hassle, "its ok im not that bothered about the DVD"

    The corporal then gave more unnecessary remarks. Saying sarcasticly "your gonna go far"

    Is there any need for this?

    Rant over
     
  2. What kind of abuse?

    Report the chump anyway, its only Monday ffs! He's probably bitter because hes got a shite posting heh

    Just cheek mainly, but come on, i was trying to be nice by forgeting about the DVD.

    Im just angry, but it might scare off other potential recruits.

    Sorry for the rant but its really annoying

    Mogzieno, you have posted this in the TA forum, was it info on a TA unit you asked for?

    What time of the day was this?

    Sub0 -- Army Recruiters should be our best and if this is true, the JNCO should be reported.
     
  8. Shop him - attitudes like that should not be tolerated.

    Absolutely disgusting treatment mate. The AFCO is the Forces "Shop Window" so to speak. I would most definately report it and in the end I reckon all will go your way.

    In my day (Navy) the Recruiting Office was a cherished posting for somebody serving who was from the Home Town.

    The Arse Holes at your AFCO need to be moved on. Perhaps they should be visited by "Service Mystery Shoppers" to assess their individual attitudes and a report made ?

    Best of Luck for the future
