Not a thread about sound sytems unfortunately. On every course I have ever been on there is at least one of the following people: The ex Sea Cadet or RNR type, who knows a bit of Jack speak and has some basic grasp of knots. Unfortunately they manage to make themselves hated by everyone by acting like the font of all fcuking knowledge and talking down to people. Usually found trying to make friends with the instructors or reading a book about Jack Aubrey. The divs chick. She is not actually that divs but is the best looking of a poor selection, usually from Liverpool and with a penchant for orange beauty products. Unbelievably stupid but manages to scrape through the course on her good looks and charm alone. She can be found getting routed by the course PTI. The fat chick. She is a fcuking monstrosity but thinks she is the Lord's gift to all things male. She latches on to the divs chick like a leach and gets fcuked by the dodgy Scottish lad from the course above. The dodgy Scottish guy from the course above. He has no friends on his own course due to his poor personal hygiene and unbelievably gash dits, but he hangs around anyway giving advice and tips. He is regarded as a god by the younger more gullible types on your course because he helped them get through their first kit muster. The old guy. No one knows why he is here, he had a good steady job before joining but decided to give the RN ago anyway. He is nicknamed 'Grandad' and generally keeps himself to himself, at the end of the course he goes for a pint with the PO gunners from the drill shed to watch the darts. The smoker. He is in a constant state of panic about when his next tab will be, he has bad skin and is very stormy, he is usually late because he is just finishing his 6th tab of a 2 minute smoking break. He will start a fight a the end of course piss up and get trooped. The duty legend. He is awesome and acheives every task. Everyone likes him, the chicks all want to fcuk him but he is staying faithful to his long term girlfriend who is a model. He has a drunken cheeky fumble with the divs chick which he regrets for the rest of the course, the chicks love him more for this. Inevitably he gets the prize for best recruit. The retard. He has absolutely no idea where he is or what is going on, he is friends with the smoker and as a result has just started tabbing for the first time. He drifts through the course in a permanent state of confusion and asks unbelievably daft questions. To everyone's amazement he scrapes through the course, just. What other stereotypes are there and which one are you?
