Not entirely sure where I stand.

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. So I'll try to keep this as brief as I can,
    Was engaged went to Brief got a Cat 2(E) (later changed as Cat 2(E) doesn't exist anymore and I had more UCAS points than required but the board was unsure about all my Scottish Quals). Mrs went apeshit as it ment I could actually join and after a few weeks decided to leave me.
    As you can tell this sort of messed things up for me and I left the process at that. I had to move house and take up a new job blah blah blah.
    Now my new job is not exactly normal, I basically entertain women whilst taking my clothes off on stage.
    Should I decide on carrying on with my re-enlistment would this current employment be frowned upon and have a negative effect on my selection?
    It has been almost a year since my Board and in that time I have been working on my fitness (as it helps with what I am doing just now) and I have not changed my personality or been in trouble with the law.
    Should I come clean and confess all or just word it differently?

    Cheers for any views, I have already e-mailed my sponser to appologise for the lack of communication due to what had happened in my personal life.
  2. Oh this is good....
  3. I wouldn't really be bothered about the ribbing I know I'll get when at a unit and someone discovers either Video's, pictures or interviews I've done for magazines. But I am worried that it will be "So Mr Wonder we think you have brought the Army in to disrepute, here are your papers good luck with the rest of your life"
  4. Magazines as well! Comedy gold.

    Hope it works out, I have no idea whether it will affect you or not.
  5. Been sent a few PM's (thanks guys for all the advice) and apparently no one thinks it will be a big deal and actually make for an interesting Ice breaker.

    Edit: Hmmm also just realised this will make me very easy to identify to any DS at RMAS who look through these boards.
  6. Wah shield on! Why should what you do in your normal life affect your selection? What you are doing isn't illegal so isn't really relevant!
    Wah shield off.

    Oh God!

    You are going to go on to work for the SIS as a Honey Trap specialist aren't you?

    Christ, you could dine out on that dit for your entire Army life! Be warned, once it's out, it WILL follow you around for your entire career!

    What? You mean a bit like the Gunner Subbie based on an Island in the south of England advertising himself as a male escort?

  10. Doubt I'd make it to a staff role anyway (too old) so it wouldn't matter if I was held back with it following me around.

    Just don't let on that you do 'extras' at private parties...
  12. I have never done "extras" that would be illegal, but what ever happens between two concenting adults is entirely private.
