my mate Wullie Reilly went out on the 17 Dec and i received a few txts from him on xmas day saying it was crap and he was coming home after tending his resignation.
He did not elaborate on the conditions or the job, i am just waiting for his email explaining to me, but i was LMAO at the txt messages.
and heading to Iraq is a sure fire way of putting bread and butter on the table?
So there's absolutely no work to be had in the UK just now? in any capacity? I don't think so....
There's putting food on the table, and then there's wanting to be one of the big boys and doing HRE out in Iraq and Afghanistan.....come on guys realistic goals where your family are not under any stress because of your location, you DONT have to work in HRE's to put food on the table
My statement of putting bread and butter on the table was meant as an expression. Not, oh you must go here bla bla where did that come from?
Why are there so many people on this forum shoting people down?
...............There's no IDF, IED's no VBIED's no SAF attacks, it's a minimal risk job, but when you put yourself into harms way in HRE's, you are totally restricted to what you can and can't do, and and limited movement, 8-12 weeks away at a time puts a hell of a strain on a relationship, even if the cash is good...it's something a LOT of guys don't consider.....and that's on the deployed side, when you come home, the house changes, people in it do, they have routine, and you come home and upset that, your partner wants the best of things too, so a word of advice as well guys, treat every wage like it's your last and SAVE don't go for the flash gear, you will end up living beyond your means, and one day, you will no longer be able to do such work, and the wages will be on par with the UK....some are close there now......
Think hard of what you're putting your family through should you get a chance to work in a job you know little about, and have had lots of heads up that these jobs are never what they advertise....due diligence chaps
Wullie, you need to be a bit more specific mate before any of the other guys out there shoot you down, you're a respected forum member, what was so bad other than everything lol
