You know what really grinds my gears? The Gears Strike Back


#382

And that’s the conjecture over…


#383

Conjecture, rumours, lies, libel and slander. That’s what grinds my gears… (nice segue back onto topic if I say so myself…)

Although there are two types of people, those that can extrapolate information from an incomplete data set…


#384

It wasn’t me! But now I want to know.


#385

I know, I was surprised too! :joy:


#386

People who comment on BBC News articles and don’t know what they are talking about, I’ve never seen more people in need of tin foil hats in my life!


#387

You need to check out the Metro website!!!

Some Americans we met on holiday this month (USA-based) see the Daily Mail as unbiased (when compared to CNN / Fox News)!! :open_mouth:


#389

It was I.
I’m just waiting for HIGNFY tomorrow night.

I always wonder why we have wing conferences in uniform - at school on Teacher Training day we wear normal comfy civilian clothing. I think the RAFAC could take the same line - no cadets present + no need to be in uniform = NON UNIFORM


#391

But how would everyone know what super awesome amazing gucci rank everyone is?


#392

it would especially upset many squadron leaders.

I had a disagreement of opinion with a WWO on a Drill Training Day around this sort of pointlessly being anal. He started treating it like a Parade and requiring all or none for things like jumpers and stable belts. I pointed out that since the actual parade would be in No1 what difference did it make what we wore for the training. (I also pointed out that I have big belt loops so need a stable belt to keep my trousers up and that I don’t have a jumper as I never wear one, thought he was going to melt!) :joy::joy::joy:

You’re the kind of person that pokes IEDs with a stick, aren’t you?


#395

Only if the IED doesn’t have a sense of perspective


#396

The problem is most WWO think they are real WOs and forget they are volunteers in a youth organisation that doesn’t supply people with things and most of what they like to get excited about doesn’t matter much outside the bubble.


#397

my WWO is great, he doesn’t need to be asked to make a brew when he sees me now, i just have to point at him and click my fingers.


#398

:joy:


#399

What grinds my gears? All this socialist crap to tax and drag down everyone rather than punish the ones who can’t or don’t want to live in a decent society.


#400

Nah, the lack of perspective extends to some regular WOs as well…


#401

But at least it is the job they are getting paid to do.
