I was talking to a DS the other day who reckoned he has the cushiest posting in The World. I won't say exactly what it is for fear of recognition, but it involves "liaison," a fair bit of international travel, a company credit card and lots of five star hotels. As he's a pretty nice bloke I'm not begrudging him it, despite the fact that my career to date has generally involved (A) dealing with recidivist neanderthals on a regular basis, (B) lurking around dodgy council estates and (C) having to explain the point of my existence to people who haven't left a reclining chair and "Development Seminar" lifestyle for fifteen years. One of my old bosses, for example, became the Chief Constable of the fcuking Turks and Caicos Islands FFS. Another bloke I worked with spent three years in Bermuda coppering, working on his tan and shagging bored banker's wives. Tough at the top. Even the person I knew who went to Boz on some UN junket made a small fortune and worked his way through a load of crumpety interpreters. Anyhow, what's it like in the regular army? There must be some extremely fcuking jammy postings everybody wants. I remember meeting a squaddie who'd spent three years as a sort of FO gopher/ driver in Hong Kong in the 80's which he described as the best job you could ever hope for; your own flat, motor, laid-back bosses and regular working hours. I dream of the day when I become the Met's Beach Volleyball Liaison Officer for the 2012 olympics here in Gotham. What would be your ideal cushy posting, or what ones have you or mates actually done? V!
