Getting Out Of The Army

True story! My contract is up, and I’m finally leaving the military. I’ve met a lot of really excellent people during my time as a soldier. Here is a short list of the things my Officers and NCO’s have had to say about me:

  • I would not breed from this soldier.
  • This soldier is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definitely won’t-be.
  • When he opens his mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.
  • He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction.
  • He would be out of his depth in a puddle.
  • Technically sound, but socially impossible.
  • This soldier reminds me very much of a gyroscope – always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere.
  • This soldier has delusions of adequacy.
  • Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.
  • He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.
  • He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.
  • This soldier should go far – and the sooner he starts, the better.
  • Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap
  • This man is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.

I’m going to miss the Army! :.-)
