First thing, I'm actually a girl not a boy!
I'm also not a volunteer
nor am I paid
and in my humble opinion None of the above would make me a martyr!
I think, no actually I know that, if you went to other events similar to RIAT, examples off the top of my head would be. RHS flower show, Tatton Park/Chelsea or even Harrogate.(that, for the purests and hair splitters means large, outdoor public events, held at non-purpose built venues) The lavvie and food situation would be very similar. Horse shows especially the large county shows are terrible for the toileting situation and the food. Dog burgers and Rat dogs spring to mind.
RIAT is not a gastronomical event, its an Airshow and whilst I appreciate bad, expensive food is a con. Its also a fact of these sort of events and as I said there is always the option to take your own. Especially if you're in FRIAT you could take a cool box and have Champagne and Cavier!!
How cool would that be!!
The fact is this is not just a RIAT thing, but you'd think it was, the way you guys carry on about it. Nobody is saying you can't complain, but for goodness sake a whole multipage thread on toilets!!! C'mon!
The Gang at Dbh have enough to do, believe me, without hiring the mobile equivalent of Jamie Oliver or Egon Ronet.
I have to say that I feel that there are quite a few people on here who feel they 'own' RIAT you know what I mean! and feel that they have a God given right to slag off/pester/stalk/critsicise and generally behave very badly towards people likeTim and Rob and the others at DBH.
There is a line, between constructive and helpful criticism/comments and just downright bitchiness and I see this line crossed time and time again on here and not just with regard to RIAT.
As for the bucket thing, well d'you know what, fill your boots pal!!!!!!
I've wee'd and poo'd in places you wouldn't believe, so i hardly think you and a bucket would cause me much distress!
Actually if you kept it for a little while you'd be able to Tan your own hides
