The Reasons I Hate The ArmyMan, where do I even begin?
1- Double standards
3- Rank elitism
4- Being bullied because I'm not airborne
5- Being denied promotion because I'm not airborne
6- APFT scores are the only scores that carry any weight
7- Leaders assuming all junior enlisted soldiers are stupid
8- Leaders believing they are always right because of rank.
9- People who refuse to adapt and try new methods because "Thats how they Army's always done it"
10- Senior NCO's who insist on micro managing junior NCO's. What a great way to produce idiot leaders who cant think on their own!
11- The "Work harder, not smarter" philosophy
12- Being told at 1600hrs about an important task and that nobody can go home til its done.
13- Squad leaders trying to stretch 2hrs worth of work into a 12hr long day because they're too afraid to release soldiers
14- S***bags being treated favorably and promoted because they can max out a PT test
15- Guys who know absolutely nothing about their MOS who get by because they are pt studs
16- Racism and xenophobia
18- AIT is a complete joke. As if anybody is going to retain s*** when they've only seen and read it once.
19- Being given leave days to be used whenever I wish, yet only allowed to use them when the company says I can.
20- Being accused of malingering for being responsible enough to see a doctor when injured
21- Leaders that don't give a crap about their soldiers. They're just in it for the promotions
22- Combat Arms MOS soldiers and their constant need to put down combat support soldiers. You don't last very long without us.
23- Overly patriotic soldiers
24- Air Defense Artillery. A massive waste of the Army's time and money.
25- Elitist wives within every FRG group
26- Having zero time to apply for the many wonderful programs the Army supposedly offers.
27- Toxic leaders who intentionally set their own soldiers up for failure.
28- The assumption that all soldiers on profile are s***bags
29- Having to carry an A.C.E suicide prevention card. As if having this stupid thing makes anyone less likely to kill himself.
30- Hypocrites in high positions
31- The Army's desire to control every facet of a soldier's personal life. What I do off duty is none of their f****ing business
32- Mass punishment. If it barely worked in the "old army", it sure as f*** wont work now.
33- Aging dinosaurs and their obsession with the "old army"
34- Leaders that throw 5 times the necessary number of bodies required to complete a task expecting to be done 5 times faster.
35- Being forced to sound off like a complete moron
36- Logic and critical thinking have no place in the Army
37- Leaders being able to add to but not take away from regulations. A loophole that has caused many soldiers much pain
38- Change of command ceremonies
39- The army doesn't pay soldiers nearly enough money for all the stress and hardships they endure.
40- No matter what one accomplishes in the army, there will always be someone who looks down on him.
