Ok, I know there are a lot of threads burning around this site at the moment. I know the Upgraders seem to be whingeing to*ssers. But all this has be brewing and storing up for some time. We've lost our bonuses, our automatic promotion, even our postings!!! To name but a few. When the troop cadre mentioned this site, alot of blokes, some instantly it seems, logged on and gobbed off. Nothing wrong with that!!! But any way back to topic. On Monday morning prior to CO's inspection, The troop were informed by our esteemed staffy in her elmo on helium voice, that there would be a parade every morning at 08:00hrs sharp. If you couldn't be there you could inform a member of the cadre, not your course leader, between 07:30 and 08:00. Personnally I laughed the troop cadre aren't out of bed by 08:00 usually. I couldn't see this lasting long. It didn't. Come Thursday morning. (Not even a whole week!) Most of the Troop were there, except a few caught up in inspections. But Tp cadre? No where to be seen. The vaunted 07:30 start time had passed, no one could inform the troop that they weren't going to be there!, as indeed did the 08:00hrs parade. It was sacked about 08:10hrs. They were all, yes all, inspecting the blocks. This situation in my eyes is lame. You gob off like that at the start of week and yet before the weeks finished you've already shown how high your amatuerism is. You say parade 08:00, someone in offfice at 07:30 to phone if you can't get. Not there you get charged, complain and there will be evening parades too. and then do this you make a mockery of yourself!!! Is this a fair judgement or do I ,as an ex-Tp Cpl (in a proper troop), set too high a standard? Comments please.
