Do I detect a hint of sour grapes, by the way, fellas?
Didn't make it into the top 10% of your unit this year? Nevermind, there's always the next decade.
You asked for someone to tell you why they deserved it, two tones. My answer to that would be that someone had to meet the standard, and it obviously wasn't going to be you now, was it?
Keep plugging away lads. Buck your ideas up, give it a few years and when you eventually pass your Investigations course, you might even start getting yourselves confidentials which may, in time, get you noticed.
Well TT I think the promotion in the RMP is outrageous to start off with as you get a snot nosed 17 year old fresh out of training with a warrant card, a stripe and an attitude thinking s/he is god, I know that your promotion slows down after reaching full screw, but by then most people have grown up, and lost the attitude and developed into actual human being's.
I think they should either put an age restriction on the minimum age you can be to join the RMP, so that poeple have a bit of life experience, or make it so that you can only transfer to the RMP after "X" amount of years in another trade.
But there is always exceptions to the rules and I have met some of them so I am not tarring you all with the same brush so keep smiling.
