What to write in leaving cards

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by roseandpose, Jun 8, 2006.

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. You know the feeling. Along comes duty git/civvy clerk with an envelope - "John's leaving on Friday, do you want to sign his card?"

    Actually no, I don't want to write in his card because either

    a) I have no idea who John is
    b) I hate him
    c) I can't be arrsed

    So can you help? Is there a catch all, non - offensive expression that suits all leaving cards? I know that 'All the best, best wishes for the future" is all well and good, but it is also very dull.

    I'm sure we can come up with better than that?

    Can't we?
  2. Try this...

    "I f ucking despised you for years you c unt, and i hope you die of something contagious at a family gathering"

    hope that helps.
  3. Or

    "Glad you're going .........now fcuk off"
  4. One plain simple word is often sufficient to speak volumes:


    It can be taken two ways:

    (a), Sorry to see you go

    (b), Glad to see the back of you!

    The recipient will never know for sure.
  5. If it's for a bloke - "Can you leave me your address before you go - I'm pregnant and I think it might be yours"

    If it's for a bird - "Thanks for telling me so promptly about the STD you gave me - I've told the other guys and girls to get checked up..."
  6. It was great not knowing you.
  7. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

    Most of the time.
  8. Get one of those rubber stamp jobs made up that has a tick box option.

    Stamp the card with...

    Sorry to see you go.
    Hope you do well.
    Bye then.
    TFFT! Tw*t!

    ...and your name.

    Then all you ever have to do is stamp it and tick.

  9. Best wishes to the wife, the children and the mistress.

    The wife will invariably glance at the card.
  10. The truth?
  11. Roses are red
    Work was abundant
    Its not any more
    So now you're redundant!

    Yes, I did actually write that in a colleagues card, but he was a cnut and deserved it.
  12. how about...

    We are sorry to hear,
    you're starting a new job,
    Hope they like you,
    we thought you were a knob.
  13. "Thank fcuk"
  14. It's your last day
    time to don the party hat,
    to celebrate your leaving
    good riddance you tw@
  15. You made the office (whatever) a brighter place.

    Shame you took the bulb with you.
