    Screwing with the Dorm Guard

    I was doing dorm guard at the time...and the TI was obviously bored

    TI - "DORM GUARD!"

    Me - "Sir trainee so and so reports as ordered!"

    TI - "What the hell do you want?"

    Me - "Sir you called me."

    TI - "Are you on acid?"

    Me - "No Sir."

    TI - "Get out of my face!"

    - 2 seconds elapse -

    TI - "DORM GUARD! ... let me out.."

      Army BCT...I was walking out the door to a formation and I was all upbeat about passing my PT earlier this morning. I was smiling and bouncy as anything...I was walking out the door when the DI said "PVT[me], get over here!"

      I grabbed a buddy and went over to him.

      He looked at me and said, "Pvt, no matter how you happy you get, you'll still be ugly."

      I looked at him for half a second, looked at my buddy and we (me and buddy) burst out laughing.

      Another drill sergeant comes over and looks at us. He then asked me:

      "Are you on crack?"

      All four of us just about died laughing.

        Is That You?

        Intercom: "Dorm Guard?"

        Me: "Sir, Trainee XXX reports as ordered!"

        Intercom: "Is that you XXX?"

        Me: "Yes Sir."

        Intercom: "Damn."

        Sad thing was I ended up being one of the better Ddorm Guards.

            Firing a Training Instructor

            I remember the time when our male TI made one of our trainees fire the female TI because he told him that the other TI wasn't in the dorm at the time.

            "If nobody's in there then that must mean that she's fired right? SO GO TELL HER SHE'S FIRED"

              During P days when we were being instructed on tying our shoes without the bridge:

              "Sailors don't have bridges, gangbangers have bridges. My - a-didas...@#$%&!! that S**T!

              Jeez and there were so many more...

                Piss Test

                "You'd better drink some #*$& water, I don't want your piss looking like golddust."

                After a recruit got a little too casual: "Okay 'Simmons,' do you wanna sit on the front porch swing, hold hands and drink lemonade with me?"

                  Tap Water

                  PVT: "Excuse me, Drill Sergeant?"

                  DS: "What is it?"

                  PVT: "Drill Sergeant, I cannot drink the tapwater."

                  DS: "Why not?"

                  PVT: "The impurities make me ill, Drill Sergeant."

                  DS: "Ill?"

                  PVT: "Yes, Drill Sergeant. I can only drink bottled water."

                  The Drill Sergeant paused a beat, unbelieving.

                  Then he gestured at a nearby private.

                  DS: "Private XXX, go and help Private Tapwater fill up his canteen, and make sure that he drinks it. There's nothing wrong with that water!"

                  For the rest of the Basic Training, he was known as Private Tapwater. The other screwups like me were so glad to have him there, it saved us a lot of 'personal attention' from the Drill Sergeants. Thank you again, Pvt. Tapwater!

                    Checking the ID

                    T.I. beats on door.

                    T.I. - "Let me in!"

                    Me - "Sir, dorm A6 may I see your indentification?"

                    T.I. (puts picture of cat up to door) - "Here's my ID!"

                    Me - "Sir, Trainee ***** reports as ordered! Sir that's not the proper ID."

                    T.I. - "What the hell do you mean that's not the proper ID? It's a pussy. You're telling me you wouldn't let a guy in if he had pussy with him?"

                        Every time my T.I. would "recycle" someone they'd tell them to "pack your trash" and start playing "Another One Bites The Dust" by Queen lound so everyone could hear it (worst part was he would sing to it and laugh).

                            Excuse Tree

                            TI: "Trainee Reimer, what is this?"

                            Me: "Sir, Trainee Reimer reports as ordered. It's a sock sir."

                            TI: "I know it's a sock, dumbass, look at how it's folded. What's your excuse for this?"

                            Me: "I had someone help me, because I was working chapel guide, I just got back 20 minutes ago."

                            TI: "Well trainee, your just one big @#!%&! excuse tree aren't you? Got an excuse for everything, you like being an excuse tree? We'll make you one."

                            He starts throwing clothes over me, making a tree out of all the clothes in my clothing drawer, which I am holding in my arms, standing at attention. He finishes all the other inspections and tells me to put my clothes away, commending me for keeping my military bearing. I must have stood there, not moving for about 25 minutes, covered in clothes.

                              Men in Skirts

                              This past week in my NROTC, OW, the Marine option MIDI got a kilt for a kid who was scottish and madE him wear it. He then went up to another kid and this was the dictum"

                              M: "Do you like Mr. Smith in a skirt?"

                              Kid: "Yes, Sir!"

                              M: "So you like men in skirts?"

                              Kid: "Um... no sir!"

                              M: "Are you lying to me Mr. Schmoe?"

                              Kid: "Um... no sir!"

                              M: "So do you like men in skirts?"

                              Kid: "Ah........ yes sir!"

                              I'm not quite sure how we all kept our bearing.

                                My brother (Air Force, '60's) says a guy at chow was apparently looking around in line, and was pulled out and made to stand at attention with his head swiveling back and forth, saying "I am a radar scope, I am a radar scope...."

                                My brother was at the head of his group going in, rounded the corner, and saw this guy doing his thing. Bro never could keep a straight face and busted out laughing, so... by the time it was all over there was a whole line of them saying "I am a radar scope..."

                                    A DI catches a recruit losing his bearing by not keeping his eyes locked on in front of him.
