First off, it's 'Liney'. And that is the end of the job title. Always has been, always will be.
Just because it's got the word 'Driver' in the official title doesn't mean that you are going to go anywhere. You'll go where the Sigs are deployed. Postings happen just like any other. It just means that you get to sit infront of the steering wheel now and again. Just like a real grown up.
Spelling 'waste' correctly is not a waste of time.
clayhead said:Its easy you just get posted somewhere become part of the small minded MT empire who due to lack of a trade to do just sit in the MT and fobbing everyone off with transport requests or giving out worktickets whilst building up your courses to compete on the RD rosta.
Give it up while you still have a chance and become an operator or Electrician instead!
Mostly you'll eat snot sarnies, drink pints of piss and seldom discuss world political events and the arts, concentrating instead on seeing how many times you can crack one out onto a sock before it snaps.rp_uk_08 said:im going pirbright 9 march for basic training my job choice is driver linesman can anyone tell me what the job is like and is there alot of travelling oppertunities?
