A bloke gets to his 20 year point and gets told that there is no chance of promotion due to his time left to serve as there is not enough time left for 2 more ARs in his sub rank, although the ARs are good. When he signs a Mid-Term appraisal and gets told that it will be good for civvi street! When he gets told that some courses will be unavailable due to time left! Is it time to stop trying and do the minimum required??????????
