Block Improvements. Tell us all

#1
Block improvements are the bain of every quartermasters day.

Although i can whine about how they would rather spend the money on a new Horse Cross country circuit on SPTA i wont.

I have posted this here to find out about any bizarre or genuinely honest block improvements that people would like to see.

I was recently on an improvements conference with some officers from andover and a load of other single soldiers.  many points were rasied but one springs to mind.

One of the officers suggested "innocently" that maybe we should have a central cleaning system.  This entails a switch and port in the wall where you plug in a hose extension and hoover your room while the dust is sucked to a central point as used in some officers single accom in this country.

Having looked at another full screw and nearly bursting out laughing we had to point out that we did not believe that would be the only thing going down through the wall.  The thought still makes me laugh today. ;D

We've got  a kitchen in our block but we're not allowed to cook in it for food hygiene reasons. Now, assuming that pads are allowed to cook in their kitchens without doing a course, can we get this daft restriction lifted? And then bring in PAYD.

Knock the bastard things down. Use up all the unused quarters instead of selling them off to some friggin nearly retired officer who will only sell it on for a fast buck. Then if there ain't enough quarters anymore build more off the twating things. Have proper march in's/march out's which are on the same terms as the pads and if any twat decides to trash his/her living space bill the fu~#e@s. ;)

EASY.

Just one question though _ Do we put 2'9'' beds in of the 3' beds that only grown ups are allowed. :-*

Bollox didn't think it was going to be that complicated !!! ??? ???

When the QM's walk around our accomodation we are made to remove all cooking or heating equipment such as microwaves,kettles,toasters and so on,we then have to place them either in our lockers until the inspection is complete or move them to the drying room,alias the kitchen.This is a stupid idea as then all your stuff gets used by other grotty people living in your flat who decide to cook some god awful snack in the wee hours of the morning after coming in off the piss,what is going on ???

The Block!!! This must be every single soldiers nightmare. I live in a block at  my regiment and I can ones'tly say it is a shit hole!

I'm only young but for the older guys who have to live in 3 man rooms isn't right. Imagine being almost 30 yrs old with a steady girlfriend and a child and having to share a room with 2 other guys. What privacy is there for those or us who have girlfriends?

I'd like the thought of waking up in the morning next to my girlfriend and not wondering if some perv in my room was looking at her. Thats my first point.

The shower area is poor not to mention hardly never any hot water, the kitchen is also a soar point. Never aloud to cook in there or make it untidy. And if your room is untidy in the slightest way you get picked up for it. We all know what army tidy is but if you live somewhere day in, day out you're gonna get the odd little bit of mess in areas of your room. Not everyone is a tidy freek.

I think every soldier should have a single man room for private and secruity reasons.

It is a valid point but the block still doesn't have enough space even for the Jnco's. Would it be so hard just to falseify some kind of door between bed spaces in 3 man rooms?

Join the TA mate, you can wake up every morning next to your girlfriend and still do the 'soldier' thing.

Ther is already a programme in place to do this.  RschA has recently had it and they seperate each room into individual pit spaces.  Bit of a short term solution if you ask me

I think ponchos and hard routine is the way forward for singlies. It's common knowledge that you're all mingers and you're living in the block because you're bagless homos!

I'm returning back to the UK in 3 weeks time and i've just found out that a simple task of fixing the showers in the block STILL haven't been completed, After 6 months.

How can the military not get simple jobs done??

All I wanna do is go back and chill out, but how can I if there are still civi workmen working

I thought the point of multi-man rooms was to stop all the little baby recruits getting lonely and topping themselves?

Loosly conected are the joys of staying in 12 - 18 man rooms which give you no privacy, too little power and no place to bring back the naafi tarts to!

The place I was in was consistantly turned down for prisoners of war and refugees as being unfit for their habitation! We still had to pay for it.

<<swings lamp>> stop whineing and be glad you're in now not then....mumble...punched behind the drill shed......putties......youth of today......mumble.....in my day!.....<<slowly fades away>>

Door Bundle far from singlies being homos, we are in fact gods chosen batchelors, who live a lifestlye you can only dream about. And everyone knows that pads are mostly sad tossers who married the first cock sucking tart they met on leave who let him shag her after he bought her a couple of bottles of Newcastle Brown, and told her lies about his amazing career, and they are then left with some fat ugly trollop in Ron Hills and white stilletoes shouting at 4 screaming brats while chain smoking on the way to the wives club, and dreaming about the next time her hubbie fucks off somewhere so she can shag all the rear party lads ;D

I don't drink New Castle Brown Ale, I don't have four screaming brats and I certainly wouldn't be seen dead wearing white stilletoes or having any sexual encounters with anyone other than my husband.

From reading your rant, I think that everybody a)will recognise that you are not in fact a happy person B)that you judge the type of woman everybody else "pulls" by your own very low standards/abilities C) maybe if you seek help for your own shortcomings you too may look forward to having a family that love you and that you in return can love. But that will take much work I'm sure.

But I doubt even a white stilleto wearing slapper would put up with someone who so obviously has problems with gender and female sexuality. I bet you're extremely easily intimidated and have some deep rooted spatial examination problems going on. (That by the way is the relative between the size of a mans brain and penis, it is proven (as in this case) when one is small often the other shrinks to match it hence the intimidation). Look forward to reading your reply, I am sure it will be as abusive as you appear to be - back off to the sink now. (Well I wouldn''t want you to feel uneasy now would I?)
