Stupid skills you havent got - because you were in the army

#1
I love it when you get credited with skills, character traits or other general shite for having served some time in your life.

Two of my favourites, for example

"You used to be in the army, you should be good at lighting fires."

"You used to be in the army, you should be good at putting up tents."

What?!?

Never put up a 9 x 9 or 12 x 12?

This was a statement from a civvy who works in our office

"Maybe you can answer this as your a Pet Op, if the price of crude oil is going down, then why are petrol prices going up??"

I must have missed the point in trade training when we were taught the politics of the worlds oil resources

I learnt several skills in the Army.... that could still be of use in Civvie Street....

If living in a shared tent/cell/shitehole.... and there is a bucket in the corner to be used as a Piss Pot during the night.... Piss against the insides of the bucket, not directly into the middle.... otherwsie the noise will waken your fellow prison**... ooops.. I meant Comrades in Arms.. :p

I also learnt how to use a razor blade to to clean Urinals with... to scrape all the green and brown gunk of the porcelain.... :oops:

Also how to scrape the yellow and brown puss from around the base of a WC pedestal to make it look pristine clean for the Razzman's Block Inspection on a Saturday.. :lol:

Also learnt how to do a Tin Bash in the cookhouse when there was a 'flu epidemic going round the regiment, and the Civvie cookhouse staff could come in to the same jobs......

I never learnt to stab people in the back, because I was in the army and we didn't do that sort of thing in my day.
I never learnt to look after my money, because I was in the army and we used to p1ss it against the wall.

I learnt that you can't run in the right direction, or fast, in desert boots up Hospital Hill while pissed and trying to avoid 160 Coy RMP.
