Waiting Patiently?...... Or impatiently?

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by BreathingOutOnTheWayUp, Jan 28, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Most of us at RR, ex or serving, will have noted that brown envelopes announcing HMS RALEIGH entry dates are now a’ fluttering onto Newbies doormats throughout this proud Nation at an alarming and ever increasing rate.

    We share the deep joy of those fortunate recipients.

    Meanwhile, this news also results in a most anxious fluttering in the hearts of those seemingly stuck in those ever-increasing queues. That knowledge causes us gloom and despair, too……

    Sooooo - What’s to be done, then?

    a. Post your anguished frustrations and black-cat one another here with:

    ‘Humph - I started me application lang before youse, ‘tain’t far, shud be meeee next.’……?

    b. Heed the prophesy (made in all good faith by that most reliable of oracles - the Ninja_Stoker) who hath decreed:

    “Behold, oh ye of little faith, those latest branch waiting lists shall be posted at RR directly that information hits my desk from on high”. Even if it spills his coffee and shatters his hob-nobs as it arrives?

    c. Trigger-like: About turn with dignity and grace, focus elsewhere & withdraw your application?

    d. Bugger off to France and join the foreign legion. See here, French Foreign Legion - Recruiting , looks better than Call to Duty.

    e. Become a gay porn actor while you wait. You'll at least have the opportunity to try out the uniform and check your bum looks tight in it.
     
  3. F. Join a political party, stand for office, serve with distinction on the back benches, get appointed to cabinet as minister of defence, scrap something unnecessary like all SSBNs, plough the money back into HMS Raleigh thereby massively increasing the intake and bringing your own entry date forward. Finally, drown, when your first ship capsized because it has to accommodate twenty times its recommended compliment due to all the extra Ratings.

    g. Form a boy band along with the others waiting. Try out on X Factor or Britains got talent with a new spin on Rod Stewarts classic we are sailing, "we are waiting". If that fails flutter your eyelids at Cheryl whilst making puppy dog whining sounds and ask Simon for another chance and immediately burst into a chorus of YMCA.
     
  5. People have a fixation with the French Foreign Legion on this site .............

    As for what to do if you don't get a letter, well I suggest going to Uni for 3 years, accumuate at least £9K of debt. If by that time you still haven't received a letter, go back to live with Mum & Dad and end up working in a call centre with people who've just left school.
     
  6. You say that almost as if it's a bad thing.

    Student loans aren't real debts, as they accrue little interest, and only have to be paid back by those who earn enough, i.e. not call centre workers.

    I think I might have a fixation with big boobs.

    i. You could always get your mummy to fight your corner. Everyone knows all recruiting staff are suckers for a bit of milf action. What have you got to lose?
     
  10. All self-respect, and respect for your mummy as she descends into a world of sado-masochistic on-line pleasure with serving and former members of HM Forces.
     
  11. Nothing to add, I just agree so I much I thought it should be posted twice.
     
  12. Havent you Heard?
    Witsend Gets commission off every new recruit they get from RR ;)
     
  13. j Become a Sea Cadet Instructor so that when you do finally get aboard Raleigh you can correct Royal Navy Instructors as to how evolutions should really be performed.
    If you dip out and get caught fondling smally boys, then you can go to University and amass huge student loans in preperation for your career in Call Centre customer service.
     
  14. 3 years at a seat of higher education plus £54,000 worth of debt is probably the most efficient option for sorting out you grammar issues...
     
  15. Good point. I shall take more care in future to justify the monies I have yet to pay. Or else I'll enrol in some sort of post-graduate grammar and syntax program.
     
  16. milf action....you'll have to explain that one.


    A debt is a debt, regardless of the interest that it's paid back at. Interestingly (no pun intended) I wonder if mortage providers consider student loans as not-real-debts?
     
  17. A milf is an older woman, who likes to have acrid, coffee stained spit chucked up her hoop, before a platoon of men rear-end her in the back of a lidl carpark.

    Its best you ask your son that one. Try tonight at the dinner table where he can't dodge the question. He probably has a few on his radar.

  20. What if there is no compulsion to pay any of it back?
