I was recently talking to a newly graduated psychology student. She asked me whether I thought that I was a sarcastic, piss taking wind up merchant as some sort of defence mechanism?!?!? I replied that I was a sarcastic, piss taking wind up merchant because I found it f*cking funny. Her reply was then that I must be just a nasty b*stard. Actually that is a step up from when I was called an ignorant, arrogant, rude, woman hating b*stard who loves himself. Does anyone else have any half baked theories of why squaddies are like they are or any stories of civvies just not quite getting it?
