I have read threads on here about crap clerks. I have seen numerous crap clerks get promoted apparently based on the fact that they are oustspoken or they make a point of kissing arse. I must own up to not doing either of these pre-requisites for promotion in the SPS. I go about my business quietly and I like to think I do an excellent job. The lads in my Coy say so (and the infantry don't like to blow smoke up a crap clerk's arse) the other clerks all say so and the SNCOs say so. I am not shy but neither am I outspoken. All my reports acknowledge my technical ability and hard work and I am still passing my fitness tests. Should I maybe toss it off, blag my work, belittle people who come to me for help and get myself downgraded in order to get promoted or should I persevere? I have now been a full screw for 8 years and the injustice is starting to get to me.
