What? No sense of humour.

Sat in my office over lunch a few of us were discussing what we were going to do over the weekend.
Once of the guys, a civvy exclaimed that his wife was having her Schnauzer trimmed on Saturday.
Once the coffee had stopped spurting from my nose and I had stopped choking I said that that was fkin funny. The non-military ladies and gents around me were quite stony faced and clearly didn't understand my humour. I am now thought of as a puerile thug.

Is it me?

Yes.

Any other questions?
 
My Mother-In-Law has a Schnauzer. It's small, grey haired and often wet. She lives next to a lake. She gets it trimmed every 8 weeks or so, there's hair all over the floor.

Jeez, I could go on and on!

The usual steelies.

See, there has to be a difference between punting a sparrow when you're wearing pointy shoes, or punting it when you've got your dessies on.

Also, OP, was the said bird dead when you released your fury on it, or were their wings just still flapping a little bit.

Was it breathing? Did you try to give it CPR?

You murderer.

I know a song about that, but I'll give it a while until Arte wakes up.

Since joining the civilian population in 2006 I have found it ever more difficult to exercise my right to depravity, sarcasm, sick jokes and laughing out loud at people's stupidness and lack of thought at what they say, this despite my best efforts to maintain squaddie low wit. I say to you sir, strike out for our way, defend the faith and snigger and cafaw at anything civvies say or do that causes the internal body reflex to burst into laughter. It's a way of life that will die out if we do not keep it real!

You young 'un's

Waite until you've been out for 25 years (no - there is a good chance you won't be dead) and you still look a twat for laughing at the wrong things and (more importantly) the wrong people at the wrong moment. As a thrusting 30 something you have the mental agility to gate those moments but time tells and you're sick humour and lack of a ****** threshold wins, which gets all sorts of looks. Always worth working with fellow mil types, just never mix a civi in to you're tale swapping and pissing competitions

No sense of humour!

I would have laughed. Although I'm a civvy, I described a situation at work to one of my supervisors as 'a right royal cock up'. You should have seen his reaction. Doubly shocked as I'm usually very ladylike at work.
