the title of this thread will clearly open a mass of comedy abuse but it's time to pull up the soap box and rant! Regular adjutant fails 2 x PFT or whatever they are called now, and what do the gunners do? berate him and put him on a 3 month bender like the rest of he soldiers would be (obviously with a detailed remedial PT programme); how stupid of me to think so. surely it would be fairer to promote the poor soul to an acting major and give him a Battery to command. Having failed a PFT prior to leave you would have thought the self conscious and diligent officer would train some of his fat ass off to regain some credibility and allow a modicum of understanding for the slave to his desk; however on return from leave the Gym buster played a blinder stating CO's PT would be a steady state run. Great bluff! once all were assembled in the gym the programme had changed to a PFA. The last man in (behind a soldier has tried to discharge for failing PFT's) was the adjutant, with a time that a girl wouldnt pass with. am I wrong to be offended by this preferrential treatment of a chief cake eater? lead from the front??
