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. I was approached by a Long Haired, Scruffy Dressed, Spotty Yoof this morning while working in a house I am renovating.
    He knocked at the door and said "Excuse me sir can I leave this here" and proffered a new phonebook, when I said "yes" he handed me the book and said "Thank you very much" and went on his way.
    Is he a throwback to those times when people were polite or am I being cynical.:!:
     
  2. I'm aghast at hearing your tale.

  4. Rob, I'm betting you have a twitter account, where you can expound your tales of homespun whimsy in 140 characters or less! If not, please get one.
