Hey all yet another boring thread bout me should keep you all interested for 5mins or so.
Before anyone asks im not a lonely sad man with no friends to talk to loll (not sayin that any of you are)
Im just not very good at talking bout things and once heard that posting crap online is a good outlet
Im in the army and was due to deploy on a nice lil summer tour to cyprus for 6months. A role which i had volunteered for and was obviously looking forward to.
rewind 6month <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<(this is a rewind motion)<<<<<<<<<
Im in the army and have applied to transfer as no longer happy in the job i do though i love the army through and through and want something a bit more green. So have decided to transfer to the RAVC(army speak ) and become a dog handler
I gave up doin a sport full time for the army which i loved to undertake this transfer as its quite a hard thing to get into. 5month down the line im gettin fed up of being held up on my transfer and spot the oppurtunity to deploy to sunny cyprus on a tour/holiday obvious no brainer put my name forward and get it
Now were back to 1month ago (is this hard to follow?)
Im told that to deploy i will need to put my transfer on hold until after the tour/holiday because of the wonderful way the army works.
Ok no problem happy enough with that as i want this time away.
Start of FEB and the second tranch of army redundancies is announced and my name is on the list as a possibilty because of my trade and time served (anyone in the forces will understand how this works) civvies i cant really side track too much as have a limited thought process.
Anyways im told all should be ok as have a good military record and have represented the army at sports and am deploying etc etc
Now at this point i want to just state that the main reasons i wanted this tour was 1) its a gift of an easy job out there for me
2) Its extra money for being out there which im sure everyone will agree isnt a bad thing
3) Slightly twisted unless u know me and my missus but the 2of us been together 6year now and never spent a whole year together as ive always been away doin something normally for at least 6month! So were not used to being on top of each other all the time so we were both looking forward to having some 'me' time.
Now were are back today:
Get told that because of the number of cuts being made in my job there is a high chance ill get the cut.
WOUNDED!! doesnt even start for anyone that knows me (and those who dont but have read this far ) I love the army all i ever wanted to do and am 100% brain washed into loving it and i love this
SO this was obviously a blow to me after discussin with my 2ic all the options we decided best not to deploy and finish my transfer.
Now at this point i know alot of people are thinking hey whats the problem?
Problem is i know the army and i know how long these things can take! I truly hate the job im doing at the minute and it will kill me to do it longer!
The problem is theres a high chance that ill still be doing it when my lads come back from cyprus meaning in my head i could of theoretically deployed done the bizz come back and hopefully transfer would be waiting.
This is actually helping by typing this maybe i should try 'talking' about things with the misssus lol
anyways knowing the above would kill me a little bit inside. plus next 6month will be spent at home which i dunno if me and the missus can take it loll
anyways thats all for now. I wont apoligise for wasting 5mins of your life as you could of stopped reading by now.
Have a good night people
