Why does everyone hate the Arty?

#1
Apparently everyone hates the Artillery. Is there a general reason which everyone holds or does everyone have their own little excuse?

Personally they grind on my nerves because I live on the edge of Salisbury Plain and the AS90 shakes the drinks-cabinet downstairs, the flares reflect off the mirror into my room so I can't sleep, the tanks grumble-away in the background and GPMG rounds fire all the time. Most of it I can endure because it is not TOO loud but the AS90 and their light-guns are often set to an impact-zone a few kilometres away.

It's reassuring to know that the army train 24/7 but i think it's cracking the walls of our house! 8O

...Has anyone got any reasons or explanations for the dislike of Artillery?

So why does everyone else hate them?

(Bad-aim eh? Apparently they once dropped one short in a cow's field, but that's nothing, the RAF dropped a concrete mock-bomb on one of the byways, pity to the poor chap who did that!)

I think the last post was just fine..... now if you could apply that to the rest of the cowardly nation you'd be forever in our debt!

NiG - You either need to stop with the English breakfast teas or get out more often.
