You are who you are.

I have recently transferred from UOTC to a TA Bn and I notice life is not the same. My civvy mates are shocked by the anecdotes I tell and find my relative immunity to alcohol intimidating. also I keep getting invites to face-book groups that are along the lines of "You know how old you are when..." and reading ARRSE threads along a similar vein.

So I thought I would jump on the band wagon and start a thread on "you know you are really TA when..."

You know you are really TA when your company organises a social and you realise the only women you can invite are your mates WAGS or whores.

You know you are really TA when going to a civvy mates party and no one will play your type of drinking games (IE ones that get people mullered in minutes few) because last time you convinced them to play drinking games they passed out within the hour (as if that was a bad thing).

You know you are really TA when....


Carry on the thread or ridicule me as a nig in your time.

Did you enjoy "Picking up the brass"?

Apologies, ignore that, I'm confusing you with "Bradshaw".

"Sevens"

Equipment:
1x Cards, Playing.
Alcohol.

Player draws 3 cards from the deck of cards. If any of these cards are a 7, the player will take a drink for every 7 they have drawn. Once finished, the 7's go back into the deck, and any cards drawn that are not a 7, are removed from the deck and placed aside. The deck is shuffled, and passed to the next player.

Repeat until wnakered.

You know you are really hideously unattractive when your company organises a social and don't tell you, and when you do find out by accident you realise the only women you can invite are the Eastern European transgenderites from Costa Coffee or your sister..

Yes at the risk of looking like a spotter, you still take the oath and what not for the UOTC, regardless of what actually goes on there. ( I think the regular Colonels and what not in staff positions in the OTC might object to being called a forces affiliated youth group - one that provides a number of Officers for the TA/Regulars.)


Bennet, this is a bone topic though

As bone a topic as it is, it's still more interesting than people asking about the correct distance/weight of a CFT and moaning about their lack of financial planning skills.

... your given an eight digit number, a uniform and taught how to soldier as apposed to knowing you are really an electronic's engineer where you are given a uniform and taught how to solder?

When at a social event, you know your TA because Regs call you STAB. Because some hooray henry student plays drinking games and can't soldier.

Whoops did I stereotype the OTC, sorry. "Oh, it's pims oclock!"

And if after being at University you can't find any women you really must be an ugly alcoholic whose only social skills involve balancing a beach ball on your nose while drinking Stella!

I'm sure if I've gone to far someone will correct me!

Arby,

Can't you just start labouring for another jobbing builder who will give you the time off?

Don't know if you've noticed but I'm in a particularly sarcastic mood today. Fantastic!
