Decided that after hearing pads complain about everything and nothing it was time for a new voice, a new hope to step into the fray and fight the singlies corner! Why do pads complain about their quarters? You pay relatively speaking, peanuts for a house which would cost you much more in civie street. When anything happens to your house i.e plumbing, you ring the families officer or most likely guardroom. Who then get onto the problem straight away. When this takes more than an hour , you complain and insult,and bitch 'bout it. Have you ever thought that again in civie street you'd have to do this all yourself and pay for the repairs and callout yourself. Complaining about singlies comming in pissed and stealing bikes. Here's a novel idea - secure them away! If you leave your bike in your garden you deserve to have it nicked for leaving it out. And as for the noise, have you all forgotten about being young? Or considered that (again) in civie street the same things happen but people still put up with it. And for my last point (for now) to top it all off you get paid for getting laid! E.g why use a condom when you can get your missus knocked up and get paid more money by your employer for doing so! What gives you the right that just because you have kids you should get paid more money? wot other jobs give that incentive to their work force? You'll slag me down for this post but f**k it, it's bout time you woke up to the thought that in the army pads are wrapped in cotton wool and certanly better off than singlies or their counterparts in civie street. As i sed say what you want but don't expect us singlies to take it lying down!!
