This may well be an old gripe and apologies to MODs if this should be in "The Other Half Forum". Basically I have returned to the loving arms of Mrs Flashman after an Op Tour and then we all moved to Germany on posting. On arriving the usual admin faff has to be done. It has become very clear that when Mrs F does it some (not all, but many) look down their noses at her (subtext is she's 'just a wife') and are very dismissive. If I go in and do it, it is yes sir no sir three bags full sir. It bloody grips me, it doesn't matter who is asking the same level of courtesy should be offered. Were I getting the same amount of attitude a quite but firm word would be had, Mrs F does not feel that she is in a position to at the moment. I hasten to add that Mrs Flashman does not and never would use my rank eg "I'm the wife of", that is not her style, she stands very much on her own two feet. Interestingly the biggest culprits appear to be the civvy admin wallahs (eg other wives!). Anyone else encountered this and any suggestions how it can be rectified.
