NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS GODFORSAKEN PLACE

#1
Let me explain....1 week ago the csm told the platoon sgts that he needed to bods for mt, one of them volunteered someone who he wanted to get rid of but the others had no-one to volunteer(mainly because all the lazy types and malcontents have just moved to sp coy bacause they falsely think that this will be an easy life). Basically it came down to 2 of them flipped a coin to decide who would volunteer somebody and then because I have a Cat c license and do not have Afghan experience I was volunteered.

Frankly I cannot accept this situation because mt is(mainly) either injured bods or the absolute dregs of the battalion, so I see 4 options:
a) Quietly accept my new posting and do it to the best of my ability
b) Drag my feet, kick and scream until the rifle companies have some bellend they want to get rid of who can take my place
c) Fill in a full screw in the mt, thereby(hopefully!!) rendering my position within that company untenable(as some officer might put it!!)
d) Go whine to the padre about how upset I am(like some people were doing when they were being "badly treated"), unfortunately this is too severely homosexual for my liking

I am leaning very strongly towards b and c at the moment. There are experienced soldiers on here though and I was wondering if anyone had any other options/advice or maybe might say mt is not the hole that I think it is. Another worry is that I do not want to do a 6 month tour of camp bastion filling out work tickets and fmt's while first parading wagons and drinking brews. So maybe somebody could clarify what mt do as well because the rifle companies have wagons + drivers and rlc will deliver supplies so what do mt do?

I also want to emphasise that I am not being a prima donna but I do consider that a perfectly fit tom who is not some total incompetant is wasted in mt especially when there are twats hiding away in the nooks and crannies of the battalion who might want to go there or be suited to it.

Have you thought that you might be the one who is able to sort out the MT section? The boys in the field will be relying on you. Get a grip, man up and soldier on.

Option D. Go on, you know you want to!

You're a fit lad, who I'm guessing isn't as thick as shite, being posted to somewhere that has a pretty big demand on vehicles (I'm guessing your heading to Afghan?).

Take it as a good thing that your plt sgt has seen fit to send you out there - you're getting experience out there, and he's sending you instead of a waster to do a fairly important job.

They need those vehicles in top order, working, and ready to go to support lads in the field. Yeah, it might be a crap job in your view, but people are relying on those vehicles for various scenerios in the field.

Man up, do the time, and you'll be back in time for tea and crumpets.

No matter how you present it, the MT is the MT. Full of mongs and wasters.

You actually believed the adverts for the army didn't you? Occasionally, and this may come as a shock, YOU HAVE TO DO STUFF YOU DON'T LIKE!

And I bet you expected sympathy from here as well.... you know where to find it, between sh....

I don't quite understand you. Could you try and be a little less subtle?

You could always stick pencils up your nose - Shout "Wobble, Wobble" (instead of 'Wibble), then wear your big shiny No 1 parade hat back-to-front, and salute the duty Cook Serjeant in the Cookhosue and ask for a tartan bacon and egg sandwich with you porridge..... :p

Then go to the Med Centre to have your bell-end certified as 'unfit for action'..... :?

Park your car outside of camp on a layby (but make sure it's part of a public highway). Get shitfaced and walk to the car with your keys. Call plod from your mobile and report yourself, say you drove to the layby but are too shitfaced to carry on. Plod comes voila: no licence = no MT.

OR

Volunteer for the Para Reg, go airborne and discover what real soldiering is all about and see plenty of the Hindu Kush with the professionals.

Hope this helps ;)

That isn't the point, e.g if I got dicked for sigs I wouldn't want to do it but I would accept it because sigs is not looked down upon within the battalion. Also it makes no sense to send me to mt when there will be someone who wants to go there that will be better for mt instead of having me trying to get out of there.
And I don't expect sympathy from people on the internet, or anywhere, I was just looking for possible advice.

On your first outing in a wagon / rover or whatever, drive it over the CO's car or some equivalent vehicle. Even better, head out somewhere where the brass live and trash a brigadiers / generals motor.

I bet, after your stint in pokey that they dont return you to MT

Self employed people in the military now? The best we could do was a song by the Animals.

Another question: Is it true that the new policy is to chuck people out for drink driving?
I don't want to drink drive but if I sit in a car with a bottle of whiskey then...no license anymore!!!
