I would have been retiring tomorrow!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If I hadn't jacked it all in for supposedly a better life, I would be retiring tomorrow from Green Machine.

    What future would I be facing if I was on my last day tomorrow?

    I know for a fact, if I was leaving tomorrow, I wouldn't be as happy and as settled as I am now.

    I wouldn't have my house, and I certainly wouldn't have my current other half.

  2. Easy Tiger, I'm not coming out of the closet on this one!!

    Bit late for that!
  4. Whoa, slow down ladies, there I was thinking that tomorrow, I'll be 40 and would be retiring from Green Kit, and all I get is abuse, but then again I shouldn't have posted in the NAAFI should I!

    I couldn't imagine not working, took 4 months out a couple of years ago, and 6 weeks out after New Year this year, and I've never been so bored in all my life. It was ok for the first week or so, but after that, I wanted to skin the rabbits and kill them.

    So, even though I might have been able to enjoy a little leisure time if I'd have stayed in, would I be climbing the walls after a week or so?

    It is nice to be retired. One can have a good lie in, lateish breakfast, potter about in the back garden, etc.

  6. Retiring? After a couple of weeks watching coronation street and "pottering" about the back garden you'll launch yourself off your council flat balcony...
