Oh, yes. It really is such a chore! I really cannot tolerate the squares in our mess who are all such uninteresting company!
Actually, some people might consider this as rather tragic, but attending my unit is the highlight of my week, and hence it is terribly distressing to me if I for whatever reason am obliged to be absent for a time. My messmates are all a smashing bunch of oppos who have really helped me out when I needed them. I would only hope that one day when I'm not such a poverty-stricken undergraduate I'll be able to return the favour.
And its not just restricted to my shipmates! When I've gone on exercise or weekend training, I still have a swell time with the men and women that I'm working with. Whether they be regular or reserve, I've never insofar met a matelot that I took a dislike to, and touch wood I never will.
for an officer i am disgusted at your attitude and language - and total lack of respect for ratings - - - -
as a JR I can honestly say at least with talk with respect and try to give respect even if we disagree - u sure you're an officer??!!!!!
