When is a colleague called a 'Walt'?

#1
Rock: Former colleague has difficulties possibly related with service in Bos; 1 tour only (that could potentially explain) early '96.

Hard Place: I did 2 tours '93, 95 (UN) and then IFOR; conflict was ended very quickly thaks to F18 and a willingness t hurt shit; my friend though wasn't 'there' though during the troubled times, and definitely out of Britfor influence. I think he's milking it; it woul appear he's a liar; however couple with possible 'other health problems' how do I stop him from becoming a fool?

Edited to clarify: Constant internet statements relating to his 'experiences; on a near weekly basis; truth is the guy spent a bit of time at Sanski when in support of LI.

When he doesn't use the right forum!

Forum for news; gossip and CHAT. Reasonable question, should get a reasonable response; I don't want to crucify the fellagh; after all I did serve with him but I question whether his interperatations of that period should go unchallenged and whether or not it would be better to let him struggle on.

Is he embellishing so he can get his leg over or to make money, if it's the latter tell him it's 50 50 or your bubbling him.

Think it's a bit late for that

After slating your former colleague as a walt, and proceeding to tell us what a hero you are, it sounds to me like you're the one milking it. You sad ****.

Yes your right....thank you; however given the number of persons who claim military experience on this site I find it is sometimes easier to establish my credentials upfront.

'When is a colleague called a backstabbing cnut'

Man up ffs and ask him what the score is. He could be in a rut with depression or something and looking for something to pin it on.

A mate on FB claimed to be a milk moniter at school, the walting fecker that he is. I was the milk moniter, should I out the fecker?Sent from Dii so it will be fecked up.

Ok I'll use an oxymoron then. When is it acceptable to **** on your mates wifes tits/arrse?

A) When he's on Ops?

B) When hes just at work, but he thinks your just helping out putting up the new garden fence?

C) Only when he is watching you do it and saying can you put it up my arrse now?

One of those answers is right - now apply the same logic to your question and I think you maybe nearer the mark to getting the answer easier....

His interpretation of that period is just that, his interpretation. Not yours, not ours, but his.
Dii wont let me hit the like button. I agree that maybe he has a problem that may or may not have been triggered by something on that tour, not everyone handles things the same, a situation that is trivial to some may be traumatic to others. Either way ask him if he needs help then point him in the right direction if you really are a mate or you could come on here and slag him off? Oh wait, you have.Sent from Dii, so I should be working.

Thank you Pebbles, I'm not entirely sure where you found "back stabbing ****" in my previous posts!
Something you should be addressing with him, not arrse.

Seriously though, the guy has probably got a bit of shit going on in his life, depression, anxiety, whatever and he feels like crap, doesnt know why or doesnt want to face why so looks for something to blame.

If he's a mate or not, have a word, in private.
