I never claimed to be an authority on anything. I'm repeating what I've seen and what staff members have told me.

But that's okay, I'm still in basic, I'm obviously just a moron living completely isolated from anyone or anything. No one talks to me about anything, I have 0 experience in all aspects of life, I was born 3 months ago and I don't know how to wipe my arse correctly.

Just remember, in BMQ you're supposed to fail everything. We used the cardboard cut outs and they worked perfectly, but our shirts were still thrown around.. Don't worry about it, enjoy your leave and if you can't fold 12x12 you're not gonna fail based on that.

Their story is not graven only on stone over their native earth, but lives on far away, without visible symbol, woven into the stuff of other men’s lives

I don't see how.

No worries, it's not like an avionics tech needs to be exact in their job.  ::)

Because my ability to fold slippery rain pants is a more accurate gauge at how I will do at my job than the 3 years previous experience I have with automated systems and programming?

And i didnt start doing this when you were 6 years old so i wouldnt have a clue now would i ? Its not like i spent 3 years of my career at a school instructing people right off their BMQ either. Guess when i say that you are in for shcok, i'm speaking out of my ***.

Wow...

I don't see how (lack of) folding crap 12x12 is a gauge to how well someone will do in the CF.  Seriously...

It's not like it's a threat to National Security because of some Mickey Mouse crap like folding 12x12.  Besides, after Basic you can pretty much throw out/ignore about 99.9% of the garbage they show you there.

Judging by the attitude you've shown here, I recommend a change in career.  Perhaps a job with Bell Sympatico tech support would be more to your liking, seeing as you already know everything.


The whole point of kit and quarters is to teach discipline, attention to detail, and carrying out orders no matter how "chicken crap" it seems.  If you can't fold a shirt, I won't take you to the mall let alone a combat zone, and neither will anyone else.

I never claimed to know everything... interesting. The only thing I've claimed is a lot of staff members don't care if your stuff is off by half an inch, as long as it looks nice, its fine, a lot of staff members are really frustrated and my ability to fold slippery rain pants is not an accurate gauge at how I will be at my job.

But, because I claimed those few things... it means I claimed I know a lot more than I do. It means I don't know the actual purpose of doing those things, it means I have no discipline... hmm. Didn't they teach you to not jump to conclusions or make huge assumptions about people in the CF based on very little information?

What i told you is that you are in for a shock later.

I'm trained to make decisions based on the available information , no matter how little of it is available. Based on what i see here, i have determined that you better start paying attention to details before you move on to your next course and employment.

It does when it comes to know-it-all dirtbags who'd be pumping my gas if it wasn't for the Forces.

You yourself have claimed that your level of self-discipline and attention to detail are low, and that your "previous experience" is what really matters.  That's all the information I need right there.

You obviously don't have a clue as to what military life entails, and as it has been previously stated, you are in for a shock.  But whatever, carry on your merry way.  Your only cheating yourself.
