Stores mongs

#1
Is it just the TA that takes its most useless inept "soldiers" and puts them in charge of the stores ? Is it to give them an easily achievable role or to keep them out of the way ? Does this happen in the regs, is it some sort of self improvement plan for those with an iq lower than that of my kitchen sponge ?

Gentlemen, unleash your vitriol

Ask Stacker1, he's a regular Norman. He's mega fit and switched on and everyone around him both above and below in rank is fat and unless. :lol:

There was an unnamed TA HQ in London whose G4 department was cruelly culled in one month by a savage round of heart attacks. Efficiency actually improved with corpses in place of 30 year Sergeants.

Maybe I need motivation.

Most stackers will never work in an SQMS or a QMs role (thats why they are All Arms Courses).

But now you have started me on the useless twats, yes it does happen in the regs.
Useless fat bastard?
Not wanted by your troop?
Can't deploy?
Then have a cushy job where you assume the same power as Hitler and get to fuck people about.

Nope am not saying a single nasty accurate word, until i get my no 2s in my hands.
After all You can wait over 10 weeks for exchanging cbt 95 items as the stores are concentrating on no 2s for a parade.

ITs nice to have 9 days to prep yer kit from scratch.

Smiles at the closeness of the local bakers to the Bn HQ.

Sorry I can't agree (entirely), whilst my Clothing Storeman is so fat that he can no longer wear uniform, I've not had any dramas getting kit out of him.

Though this could be because he has a boy to do the fetching and carrying and he isn't required to leave his chair.

Right, lets get this straight.

Stores are for fcukin storing. :x

If it was called issues then it would be for issuing. :lol:

Even with my latest job,you have to guess your size for the stores to send you an article of clothing."Can I pop in I'm only down the road"? is met with a polite "No" translated to mean " P!ss off it's the stores,an all hallowed ground that shall not be trodden by mere minions" :)

Mongs in stores! No never, I can t belive I m reading this In nearly 20 years of service I ve never come across such a thing!

What unit has them?

In my experience, it was people having unreasonable expectations with regard to stores and store mongs that caused all the problems. At Detmold you went to the stores to talk about fishing, to drink coffee and if you were really lucky, to nick one of his digestive biscuits.

Kit? I wouldn't have even dared bringing that subject up.

You mean they don't?
I always assumed that their pay packet was affected by how much kit was left on the shelves at months end.

It is the only thing that explains the "I only have one left and you can't have it because someone might need it" attitude.

I always thought that a file full of 1033s would be easier to count than a shelf full of widgets?

Ah they were the days, when a big inspection was due and the SQMS could not account for loads of kit. Used to sit there making up fictitious 1033's to cover it.

In Verden, early 70's, the Regimental stores had certain quantities allocated as 'shelf stock'.

As a Cpl tech I had been sent to get a couple of rolls of black nasty. The NCO in the stores told me to feck off as they didn't have any, this despite the fact I could clearly see 10 rolls on the shelving behind him. When I remonstrated with him and pointed out his error I was again told to "Feck off." because "That is shelf stock and only the QM can authorise it's release."

Someone from the REME attached to 2CS tryed that ,I think he had 3 generators on his books but could only find two. On a inspection a certain LE major from the loggies asked why a Craftsman had signed out a 10k bit of equipment the day before. Needless to say shit hit the fan.
