Hi,

I have a good mate who I’ve been pounding into his head to get a UHF unit. He has now done that.

Unfortunately (because of a lack of brain cells) he takes great delight in calling me every 5 minutes asking “are we there yet”. I’ve considered garrotting, murder, severe torture or shoving the damn thing up his A*&^%#.

Do any of you have a logical and humane answer to this problem?

Regards
Kim

Willem,
As always, your logic is indisputable. However, If you could explain one scenario to me..... Let's assume my brain dead mate has an accident and his head is up the southern end of a steer. How would he make contact if I changed the channel?

Kim, if his head was up the southern end of a steer he'd be unable to contact you regardless of the channel....but I get your point....

you could ask you B.D mate to shuddup for a while :)

I'd leave him up the southern end of a steer. Either that or tell him to SHURRRRRRRRRRRRRUP!

Tell him the story about the boy who cried "Wolf". (With no disrespect to our own dear Wolfie).

Just do it back to him.

He'll get the message.

Guys,
You seem to be missing the point. This is an individual who thieved his mother’s garden gnomes. We are dealing with the lower order of humanity! Please try to stay focussed…

Exactly the same as we do with small children who do this: don't respond.

It won't take him too long to get the idea that it no longer gets him the attention he seeks.

Personally though, I'd find another mate.

A big smear of tooth paste on his nurries. That should shut him up for an hour or two anyway.

Nup. Use dencorub/deep heat. More effective than capsicum spray but harder to administer.

KP, most of the people above have looked at buying a DVD to stop kids doing as your BD mate is. If you got him to buy his DVD next, and only have it playing when he stops, he wouldn't catch up again and get out of range quite quickly. You may have to hire only 2 DVDs in his name to lose him to the video reposession unit.
Cheers,
Who?

Muzz,
What an absolutely great idea. I could Super Glue his lower lip to the tow bar!
Problem fixed.
Guys, thank you for your input (I really mean that).

If this person annoys you so much and has got so many brain cells missing, I think this person is a person I would not like to be friends with. Don't worry about beating around the bush, tell him straight it blooooody annoys you and don't do it. Probably anoys everyone else on the channel too! It's people like him who give these radio's a bad reputation.
Straight down the line is the best way to be, and if he gets offended, well truth hurts. And if he can't handle his "best mate" asking him not to do something cause it annoys you, well he is not really a mate is he?

OK I've had my say.

Put his goolies in a vice and tell him you are going to give the handle half a turn for every time he has said "Are we there yet?"

the only way I found (ITs worked with 3 mates now) get them a head set for their radio- all my mates seem to have the same radio so its saved me.
Get yourself a handheld, and when they are using the radio give them a dose of feedback between your main and handheld radios. This blasts a deafening whistle through their headset. You can still do it without the headpiece, but then its only annoying, and not painful for them.

Everytime he annoys you give him a couple of minutes of the veinna boys choir or some obnoxious preacher, he might learn to shut up.
