i had the mis-fortune to chat to a young AT down at a local pub t'other day.

Now, its not a military pub, nor did he know i was military...what a c0ck-end of the highest order.

he spent all night telling me how well qualified he was, how many a levels he had, how he could have been an officer, how he'd been hard done by in his CRs, what a bunch of w@nkers the officers were etc etc...

was he a crusty, old, bitter senior? No, he was about 21 and a Lance Jack.

I agree...give the ATs their own area

Interesting this. All, well perhaps nearly all, of the AT genus that I've met have been goodish blokes and a few have been stars, yet a fair chunk of those who post on this site appear to be whining wets with an industrial sized chip fryer balanced on each shoulder. Does this mean that when I meet rocket doctors in the future I should first ask if they post on ARRSE before deciding if its worth talking further to them, yet alone standing them a beer?

rickshaw...i agree... and actually this has never occured to me before...

maybe we could devise a ARRSE-onic type handshake, thereby identying potential culprits

Goon and Rickshaw are you suggesting that you would judge a character by what is posted on here? People are just airing there views, sometimes well considered others not. Occassionally people have been known to play Devils Advocate. I pressume that I am guilty of BCFS (Big Chip Fryer Syndrome). ARRSE wouldn't work if we all had the same views. If you engage me in conversation in a pub I will be happy to identify myself and I would have no problems standing you a pint for we all have one thing in common - we have served Queen and Country - well or not so well.

so you are not happy with your own personality and feel the need to log on and fulfill your alter ego? you will note from my posts that i am an inconsistent hypocrite - which if you ever had the misfortune to meet me on the piss (who knows, its a small world!) you would find is pretty accurate!!

This idea of a special handshake reminds me of the old adage: if you can’t work out who the w@nker is in your Plt at RMAS / Basic Trg then its you. You guys never did work it out did you?
 
#13
Confirmed onist (spelling?), so maybe a handshake is a poor idea. :?

Also I'm an AT so apparently a poor human.....oh well I'm happy in my world. :oops:

If we end up in a pub together, you'll recognise me as the opinionated fat bloke - just like on here. As Rickshaw says, we're not all cnuts and neither are all officers! :wink:

Thing, I reckon you are ex RAOC.....

Anyways, fast promotion, higher payband.... bad pay my arrse!

Lets have communism in the army. One set of pay for everyone!!!!! :D

You know I do my best thinking on the sh1tter, the rest I put on here..... to see what shakes loose from the vermin. I rate any AT who serves, we do a sh1t job for cr@p pay. You that post to snipe, you make me smile, and are welcome to come spend a day on an Op Tour stood beside me. (but you wont)

Otherwise, all you are is words and hot air same on here as you are in life.

Thanks for the laughs!!!

Sua Tela Tonanti.
You the only person on your planet? If you are not happy with your job/pay whinge about it....Oh you did well done!

:D

Well, this is one of the more random threads I've seen.

For the record, I'm an AT and I think being an AT is great. Not really got very much to whinge about in the grand scheme of things, to be honest. Plenty of little moans, about mince and trivia, but I think they're best kept for elsewhere. So there you go. A non whinging AT - like most of us are.

Rowley, there you go. You fall into the category of rocket doctor I mentioned at the off. Thing, on the other hand, seems to be snapping at everything like a Moray Eel thats been on a speed diet for the past week.
Thing, this isn't a snipe. Please don't do the "real men are AT/ATO schtick - it really does grate. I'm delighted that you've been an EOD type bod. I first met your ilk in Belfast in the mid 70s and thought the trade off of maintaining a cordon in the snow fair return for the ATO doing his thing (Although I was a bit miffed when he "let it sweat" long enough for my blokes and I to grow snow cones on our heads.) I've come across them (in a very non-sexual way you understand) throughout the years and have even sat in that horrible Officers' Mess in Kineton where they all swap tales about not turning out unless theres a QGM in the offing (This is a joke, Thing.) But the one thing I've never heard them do is to be so crass as to state, imply or even hint that others are lesser beings because they haven't stood alongside an operator doing his thing in an operational environment. Now, Thing, your undoubted seniority - pre-dating the RLC implys it - makes your stance a surprise. Unless you're ex-PEODS (B*gger me - its not you is it Rory?!)you probably won't have stood alongside an airborne type in the door. Unless you've something rather special aside from the AT thing, you've probably not been the second man on the balcony and unless you've passed the Catering Course, you've never braved the insults at the hot plate. Thing, old mucker, old mate, old warrior, ATs and ATOs are bloody brilliant and do things that the vast majority of us can't won't do or even think of doing but it makes those who are not AT/ATO no lesser men, just different. Oh, yes, I was in the RAOC once upon a time - obviously not as a rocket doctor - and I thought the motto was See You Later Tonite...... ah well, maybe one cap badge too many.......
