Evening all. Just had a very interesting chat with my colleagues (a fellow S02 and an S01) about my skulking off on Civil Service Flexi time and the like. I used the "but you guys knock off early on a Friday and wander off to the Gym when you like" line as my defence. This was responded to with the old "The Army say I must be fit, so they have to allocate time for me to go to the Gym". I, in turn, responded with "but the Army say I must be fit, and yet provide no time for me to go the Gym". "But you're not in the Army". Don't get me wrong, the Major in question is a top bloke, but I thought that the Regular Army was past this sort of thing and at least acknowledged that the TA is part of the same organisation. Any thoughts, or should I just knock off early and accept my lot as a second class citizen? Edited to add: After re-reading this, it is badly phrased. Please read the rest of the thread before replying.
