Reasons why I hate your face.

Rate this Entry
That is most likely what you've heard in your life... that is your military life... if you were ever in the military, by an NCO or a Drill Sgt. Now, before I continue, I really hate people. I thought I really used to hate people. Now it's just ten times worse. I hate people who take their freedom for granted. I hate people who think things are suppose to come to them. I hate people who have no discipline. I hate the civilian world.

What's even more hilarious though is I miss the freedom to do what you can do without being so restricted. Wake up at 5. Eat your chow. Work all day, work all night. So obviously I hate reading posts on Facebook about "fml I have class." Yeah and? You have fucking class. Go to class and come back and enjoy the rest of your fucking free time. You'd actually be surprised what you can accomplish with 3 hours of free time. Me? I eat chow, shower, wash my laundry, pack my rucksack, study, watch a game online, hang out with my battles, and work out. In three hours. Holy shit.

I never quite understood why my Drill Sgt hated the civilian world. He called civilians assholes who take the little things for granted. If it was up to him... everyone would serve a mandatory 3 year stint in the military. I never quite understood this logic until I came back home and saw how retarded some of my friends dictate and manage their life.

And thus introduces the title of this blog. "Reasons why I hate your face, private. You are a Dumb Ass Recruit. You're not a soldier until you deserve to be called a soldier." I earned the respect of my Drill Sgts. If you ever see a person in uniform, stop and thank them for their service. They didn't join for shits and giggles. No one does. Unless they are severely fucking retarded. They will be surprised you thank them, but will cherish your thank yous.

    This is why I can not understand people who can not finish collage in 4 years. You know the ones who never show up or do any work. I sure as hell am not paying to be in there and that is exactly why I can not waste anything. It is not my money to throw away and if it was my money I would still not slack off b/c it is my money. Now I do understand that not everyone can only spend a few hours the night before the test to lean everything like me but even for people that need help there are so many programs ect to ensure that you will pass that it is impossible for you to fail unless you do not care.

    Exactly. I just think people don't care. And that's why military use motivation and stress the word motivation. If your motivated you will forever succeed in anything and everything you do. Most people take that motivation and procrastinate. There is no procrastination in the military. It's the do it or your dead mentality. I wish everyone had this.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.. I don't understand how you guys and gals in the military can possibly come back here to the civilian wasteland without absolutely snapping. I can't imagine going through what you guys go through, then coming back to "home sweet home" only to stand behind some illiterate asshole in a convenience store with his pants sagging to his knees, acting like a prick..just to be a prick. I salute you and every single one of you that does what you do, and personally, I "get it". Cheers soldier..

    Thanks :3VOLV3D:!

    I honestly have tried controlling myself on friend posts on Facebook so when I go back in the civilian world... I can only imagine it's going to be even worse!

    I love serving and I don't regret it! Thank you and cheers back!

    remember when you posted before you left and i said something along the lines.. " you arnt a soldier tell you complete BCT - You arnt a soldier tell your Drill Sgt says other wise..."
    glad to see you have made it this far. you still have a few more steps until that "hate" starts to go away. Before you know it that hate will turn into an undying effort to show the people around you that they are fucking up by consistently doing the right thing.

    If you live by our army values as a soldier and as a civilian, that hate goes away. I promise you. You dont care about anyone elses shit but your own and those whom are a part of your life around you i.e. family, your unit, friends, and neighbors.


    TBH to me it seems that you are having a hard time adjusting to the lack of privileges you used to have and you have what i like to call. COCKEGO.... You feel some sort of "self" worth now that you have completed training and you are slowly realizing that people dont really give a fuck. Im not saying its wrong to feel as if you deserve respect, we all do.. we deserve it more then we get but to let that effect you from doing your job as a soldier is not the best thing, and like i said before id give it a good 6 months from now tell you start to realize that. The greatest thing about being in the service is that each new day is a new learning experience for everyone from E1 to a general.

    I agree. If people spent a year in some 3rd world country they might respect what they have. The farthest I've been is Colorado, and I'm certainly guilty of not being grateful. My mom spent 2 years in Argentina and she tells me from time to time that I have no idea the blessings I've been given. Cars, house, computer, school, etc.
