Thanks

Since my last topic was trolled to feck and now I can't post in it, I'd just like to say thanks to everyone.

Said topic: Click Here

I'd just to point out that most of what I said was in-jest (window licking, etc). I wasn't whinging or "giving attitude" - I was simply asking is there any way around the UCAS business. I'm not thick and could have easily gone to universtiy, but decided to put boots on instead - criticise if you so wish.

I simply wanted to debate "qualifications" vs "life experience" but obviously most people would rather cause an argument.

It's nice to know this site is STILL as hostile as it was 4 years ago. Honestly, I think a lot of people are only on this site to shit-stir. I expected better from so-called professionals.


(To those who actually gave sensible answers - a genuine "thank you" to you :) )

Waaaaah !

I came onto an internet site looking for a hugbox because I can't accept that I do not meet the objective criteria for a position - after all, it can't possibly apply to me because I'm special and my Mummy says so too.

Anyway, when the other posters responded just like they do to anyone else who starts crayoning dribble I decided to return and whine some more, because, well, they must be wrong and will no doubt realise that if I type some more self-justificatory facile remarks.
Moreover, if you can't cope with a little bit of mild slagging on the internet your chances of coping with real-life scary soldiers in Helmand are somewhat slim.

By the sounds of it you've got fuck all of either. In your illustrious 4 years in the TA, what rank did you reach?

At the end of the day, it's down to the board to conclude whether or not you're Officer material, if they don't think you are then get over it!

I am, but sometimes tough love is the way forward.

Indeed...

If you've learned nothing about the squaddie mindset in four years, you are not fit to command a tea towel let alone soldiers.

Dry your eyes.

PS are you with C Company 3 PWRR? Been in for four years, recently applied for a Commission?

Clearly nobody at your TAC will be able to ID you ( and tell you to stop bleating on t'internet.) 3 PWRR are a good bunch, why not shut up?

To whom is this last lot of vitreol aimed? If it is me or OOTS then you are out by a country mile.

I think perhaps it was aimed at Critical Blue's huge C Coy, 3PWRR banner signature.

The veil of anonymity of the internet nearly removed in a few simple clicks! 8O

I never read back that far, I have a staff to do that for me (they will be punished accordingly). I will speak with Gates re the spelling issue.
