Sense of Humour

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Danny_Dravot, Apr 6, 2005.

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:

  1. Public Humilition - Imagine walking around with your shiney new TRF incorrectly adorning your rig.

    Further imagine that you're the individual responsible for enforcing dress standards etc in your unit.

    Now picture that you've twigged that everybody is p!ssing themselves at your misfortune/incompetence.

    There's only one cse of action - single out the wrong man, berate him in a viscious, vocal, offensive and foul mouthed manner, only to be told a while later by somebody of the same rank that the said individual was nothing to do with it.

    Imagine you then had the moral courage to apologise - Nah, somethings are unbelieveable.

    Choose not to choose life, choose a Standard Life.
    RLC Officer - Be average!

    Was it you?

    Anyway, don't worry. The School of Catering were on the TV the other week and they all had their TRFs on UPSIDE DOWN!!!!!
  3. Goon Bde, moral courage is like the phrases: man portable, female equivilent and 2 deployable Divisions. It exists on paper, every one talks about it and states how important it is but it is very rarely in evidence!

    .........but you already know my views on this.
  4. Had a similar thing happen to me at Slit North Port during a roulement where I had been asked by my troop staffy to pass on a piece of paper listing which specialist kit was to go on what transporter to the full screw in charge of loading ops. This done I went for my lunch with said full screw. As we were sat there the staffy came storming into the dining room stood in front of our table and ranted and raved in a loud voice at me about how we had loaded the wrong transporters and it was all my fault. Even though we still had the list and had loaded to his specs. This lasted for a minuite or so in the crowded dining room before he stormed out.
    The silence of the dining room was only broken by the OC of the RLC Sqn based at Split North Port muttering 'What a w**ker'.

    How did the TRF get applied incorrectly? This would appear to be one of those occasions when people have nothing better to do than worry about such trivial things as whether a badge is sewn to a uniform correctly.

    The cause of the error should have been investigated prior to the bollocking, and then action taken upon its outcome. Bad advice, incompetance or someone with a sense of humour?

    Don't get me wrong, I have nothing better to do than to stag on ARRSE all day, never mind TRFs! I just love irony!
  7. Seems there was an idea where 2 RLC Regiments were on a single Station, then they would wear their TRF's in different configuarations so numpty CO's could recognise their own soldiers! What's next, Unit Flashes on the left arm???
  8. Unit fashes, what, like the Pioneer CEG wear? :?
  10. Put mine on upside down for the Regtimental photo. Had to stand very very close to the man next to it so nobody will notice my mistake.

    Saying that everyone will now think I'm gay.
