He told me last week that he had leave booked from 22nd October through tot eh 29th. Great I thought, it's the school holidays, he never got any leave that he asked for during the summer holidays. Today he calle dme to say that he can't get leave that week, but he can the week after. SO I told him he mite as well not bother then and pout the phone down.
I'm furious, but I also know I'm being unreasonable, I just need it confirmed!grin

I had already told the DSes that dad was off during their October school holidays.
I don't lose my temper very often, but I'm just getting so bloody fed up with the fuc*in military at the moment and the way they piss folk around

i rather think this depends on whether he is only NOT allowed the leave - becuase everyone else got in thee first....becuase THEY are more organised..... if this is the case - then twat him round the head with a wet kipper.

Custy, it's none of the above. i know its not his fault. The military have this really stupid way of doing things. For example, if someone has served their time and are due to leave for good, then they are entitled to what they call re-settlement leave, so they can effectively finsih work as much as 6 months before the officially leave. However, the MOD don't replace these personnel until there actual leaving date, so they are 2 men down there, 1 is in iraq (not his fault I know, and apparently there is no one else. however, 1 man has just been given a week off to go sailing!hmm.
What has annoyed me as well is that DH is away for the last 2 weeks in September and 1st 2 weeks in october on a course. He was supposed to be having the week after he got back (which coincides with the school hols) off.

It is shit isn't it? DH is organising an excercise in Turkey for some of his soldiers and can't understand why I'm pissed off it's over half-term! Eeejits.

ring him back and say you know it is his fault - just that you find the whole thing so frustrating. He must too - and having you shout at him won't help !
