Sixth Sense Whingers Page

Anybody read this weeks Whingers Page in the Sixth Sense? It stuns me the things that some people whine about in Germany. They've got tax free this and that and a lifestyle they wouldn't be able to keep up if they were back in the UK, but for some people, that's not good enough.

Some Staffy has written in (even puts his name to the letter) whining about an upside down Union Jack. Not a great issue, but understandibly one which may upset some, but he spends 10 paragraphs (no doubt the edited version as well) telling the whole of BFG how, during a visit to the garden of remembrance at Rheindahlen, his 'initial thoughts of pride' were turned into 'shock and horror' when he saw the the Union flag had been hung upside down. He claims that being 'gutted' was 'an understatement' and that he was 'truly disgusted' and then goes off on one about people 'being utterly ashamed of themselves'. I could imagine him, all red faced and stamping his feet in his Barbour jacket and Moleskins. 10 paragraphs to say that he wasn't happy about an upside down flag. Complaining to whoever was responsible for the garden and leaving the matter at that, wasn't good enough for this cooky.......he had to write to the papers.

Talk about over reacting. What a w*nker. I'll bet it's just a joy to work for this geezer.

There's also a brammer about the Monkeys. Some bloke phoned them up for a bit of help and they laughed at him. Must admit that I chuckled.

Have a read for yourselves.

Ref the thread..... i bet this t0ssp0ot didnt bother to actually point the "massive dissapointment" out to anybody who actually organised the event or were there running it! Typical wan*er who just sees something and then goes away and complains instead of actually trying to help put it right!

Now Laird-x....... These dead people you see- you really should stop digging around in the cemetary.

Suppose, just suppose that the warden was in dire danger of being molested by the tea-lady and raised the flag the wrong way up as a distress signal..... just suppose......

Dear Sixth Sense,

I am deeply distrubed to report that my flaps hurt. It is clearly a failure in the system that people can't look after me and as a SSgt I am unable to stand up for myself. Blah, blah.

Get a life. Get some pride and get a fecking back bone

Dear Sixth Sense,

Today, whilst driving past the BP garage in JHQ, I noted that the BP flag was upside down and that it now read d8. Words failed me!! I was so incensed I considered getting a life, but my wife convinced me otherwise.

Why oh why, do other people annoy me.

I am considering writing to Anne Robinson.

Dear Sixth Sense

I am incensed that you have so far failed to print a response to my earlier letter. It has always been traditional that any complaint printed in these pages should be answered by a smug, pompous RO from the Big House, in the most patronising style possible.

I am considering applying for a job at the BFGVLO, so I can get paid for being a disagreeable, unhelpful dullard.

The flag letter probably isn't a spoof but for a couple of years I was sending in two or three spoof letters a week to Sixth Sense just to see how far I could push it. My mission was always to get the pen for letter of the week with the biggest pile of pish I could think of but I failed there. However, I did get a double page spread once devoted entirely to irate answers to my letter the week before where I'd laid into the passports for pets campaigners with a load of made-up stats and a stupid argument. Dumbasses :twisted:
The pompous letters normally work though. I made out once that I was some Captain who was disgusted that he'd managed to get into some barracks by using a piece of toast as an ID card. On questioning the soldier, he said he'd been confused by the way the marmite was spread. I followed it up with a couple of pompous sentences about security, IRA etc and it got printed FFS! Try it yourselves :D

We used to do the same. We even managed to get one or two printed.

It's probably the only reason I buy the damned thing....to read the letters page and see what's upsetting people and it's not much over here either. This bloke with the flag problem must be a total c*ck though. I would be f*cking embarrassed if I were him. I wonder what his oppo's were saying when they read it? The content of the letter was f*cking unbelievable, but to put his name against it? I sometimes wonder if clowns like him are doing it to gain the attention of their bosses. He was probably there with his OC who pointed it out and thinking he may do his career a big favour by 'airing' the OCs view, 'our man in flags' had a brain storm. I hope to f*ck he reads this. If you want a commission mate..........don't make a c*nt of yourself publically. It's not the done thing old chap.

Life must be great in JHQ though, if that's all they have to worry about.

Did anyone follow the spoof a few years back about Officers wives doing as they pleased in the little NAAFI at JHQ? It was responded to by some squaddie pretending to be an Officers wife complaining about the state of some of the squaddies wives when they were out and about. One comment went on about them swanning around in their Ron Hills and white stilettoes surrounded my manky kids and pushing trolleys 'full of beer and bread' (I will never forget that line!) and chewing on greasy chips from that mobile chip wagon which used to park up outside the big NAAFI. Anyways, the ex pat who owned the chip wagon responded the following week stating that he operated within the German regulations and that he'd sue the next b*gger that said his chips were greasy! I was posted the following week, so never got to see the end of it.

Did anyone used to write to 'Dear Deirdre' when they were bored on tour? We got three printed throughout our tour in XMG.

Anyway.....I can hear some children playing in the park......I'm off to complain!
