The ARRSE Samaritans hotline

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by tiny_lewis, Apr 13, 2012.

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. Being a socially minded fellow, with a bit of time on your hands and a pinprick of conscience that demands you play your part in Dave's 'Big Community', you volunteer to man a Samaritans hotline. How would you deal with those poor, suicidal callers:

    Starters for 10

    "The next express train is the 8.14pm... next... yes, put all three wires in your mouth... next.... make sure you get your whole head over the barrels... next"

    "Your wife is right mate... christ you're boring"

    "The fence around the pylon is a barrier only in your mind. If a kid with a kite can climb it..."

    "Of course no one will miss you... its not as if you have any friends anyway, else you wouldn't be talking to me"

    "Yes, jump"

    "Tell the policemen its a gun..."

    "Really? Fascinating"

    I suppose the ultimate in irony: the Samaritans use a call queuing system.

  3. "Your call is really important to us so please continue to perch on your concrete ledge until an advisor becomes available"
  4. "Go on,I dare you"
    "We get good rates on single tickets to Switzerland"
    "Yes of course,the third rail is the safe one"
    "What size shoes do you take"?
    "I've got a guy in Mumbai who would like your kidneys,liver,lungs,eyes and spleen"
    "Do you want to talk to my sister in law,she'll bore you to death"
  5. "Due to apathy we are experiencing long delays in finding an available operator. Your call is important to us. Please hold the line...Your call is important to us. Please hold the line...Your call is important to us. Please hold the line..."
    click. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn please replace the handset. Please replace the handset.
  6. Just ignore the dosage limits on the can take 100 aspirin dissolved in a glass of whisky
  7. "If you are attempting to hang your self please press one!"

    "If you are attempting to take an overdose of prescription medication please press two!"

    "If you think it may merely be cry for help or related to any other matter then please hold the line"
  8. OK once you have sorted out how you would deal with the suicidal individual who would you trust to man the phones.....I thought of Jarrod and Sluggy but Jarrod would just use it to pick up suicidal man meat advising them to switch sides and offer his support and Sluggy would just get them to finish the job as quick as they could so she can knock off to guzzle wine and ride her pony (or the rampant rabbit if no pony is available).

    So another question is who would be trusted to man Tiny Lewis ARRSE hotline???
  9. Zero _Over...he would convince callers that actually there is someone more boring and desperate than them. Him.
  10. The_Iron I've not met you but I think you are getting on now, retiring soon, you'll be a burden. The loss of status will be hard to cope with, your mood will get low, you'll turn to drink or drugs, end up on the streets. It always happens, think of your future misery and end it all now.
