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 you hadn't been a squaddie, what would you have been?

    Me, I'd have been a gynaecologist, as having been a squaddie I know I can work with a bunch of cnuts all day! :lol:
  2. Seriously? A senior manager for McDonalds. I worked for them before I joined up and had been promoted twice in the first four months; I took a pay-cut when I joined the army and didn't pass my MaccyD's wage until I was on trade pay 14 months later. There were 147 stores then, there are 1200 now. They promote from within and I did, as they say, get in at the bottom floor.

    In my dreams? A bikini-line waxer on "Gladiators"
  3. Me? In and out of prison, like most of my civvie mates............
  4. I'd be a dosser, and a pikey. Yes I would have a dog on a lead made from string and rob anything
  5. Jail, and it was Army or Youth Offenders Institute and that would have meant "what fu*king tool?" and sessions in the greenhouse saying nnnnggghhhh, whilst having my anus stretched, by the Daddy.

    But I was "asked" to join up, so I still got fu*ked, but in so many different ways !! and never once did the MOD give me a reach around.....cnuts!
  6. Seems im in good company here lol....jail for me if i hadnt joined
  7. Trophy wife.

    Darn it! what went so wrong? :(

  9. Homeless.

    If I hadn't been a squaddie then I would like to have been a soldier :oops:
  11. The man who picks up the soild (edited to say that should be soiled -though the thought of solid gruds gets me going) gruds in the Ladies' changing room at Wimbledon (Tennis not FC).

    Seriously-my boss at Dixons said he'd keep my job on the photo counter for me-I held him to his word and moonlighted on saturdays and leave for a couple of years.
  12. Wouldnt have minded doing geography or archaeology but I wanted to join as a JLR so couldn't be arsed hanging round in school :D
  13. I was going to join the Police, but they were so off hand with my enquiries, that i popped into the Recruiting office down the road and bingo - I was in Sutton Colfield in days.
    That showed them!
  14. Blown out by Cheshire Police at 18 so went out and got drunk, woke up next day with stinkin hangover at UI females house and popped into the careers office on the way back home.
  15. I wanted to join the RUC. My father threw a very large track........so hello RAMC :D
