Unfair or just the mood of the people?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was witnessed:

    >> A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was standing
    with her shopping in a queue at the checkout.
    >> > >>
    When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she made a loud remark about the English Flag lapel pin, which the female cashier was wearing on her blouse.

    The cashier reached up and touched the pin and said, "Yes, I always wear it proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him".
    >> > >> >
    The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing and killing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.
    >> > >> >
    At that point, a Gentleman standing in the queue stepped forward, and interrupted with a calm and gentle voice, and said to the Iraqi woman:

    "Excuse me, but hundreds of thousands of men and women, just like this ladies son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just like YOU can stand here, in England, which is MY country and allow you to blatantly accuse an innocent check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen".

    "It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in Iraq, which you claim to be YOUR country, then we wouldn't need to be fighting there today".

    "However - now that you have learned how to speak out and criticise the English people who have afforded you the protection of MY country, I will gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help you pay your way back to Iraq". "When you get there, and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken as what you are here in England, then you should be able to help straighten out the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first place, which appears to be the reason that you have come to MY country to avoid."

    Apparently the queue cheered and applauded.

    And rightly so I say.
  2. We need more like him
    Unfortunately the woman will probably complain to the shops head office that she had been insulted in their shop. The shop will then have to apologise to her and she will receive a bunch of flowers

    Where did you get this one? I read it this morning on ARRSE and also saw it shot down in shit as a copy of an urban myth from the states a few years ago.
