What I HATED about the Marine Corps

July 29, 2019



what happened is that pollen or is that like doodoo oh no what kind of poop is it where did that come from maybe haha I made a short list about things I really didn't like about the Marine Corps here we go the first thing I really hated about the Marine Corps was working parties now party sounds cool but it's anything but cool what you just saw there was Miranda and I raking leaves totally fine when you're civilian but when you're in the military and somebody tells you to pick up rocks from a field that's full of rocks or sweep the pavement or sweep the mud they just give you ridiculous tasks and you have to it's just annoying roommates I hated having a roommate not necessarily all the roommates my god living with two or three other people in a small room can get to be really ridiculous especially if people don't clean up pee all over the toilet you know I'm getting personal now no you are roommate I'm just kidding I'm just kidding no I'm not though I hated field day now I love to keep my room clean and my room is clean like pretty much all the time when I was in the Marine Corps Miranda's given me a look but uh yeah field day was like you'd have to go outside get in formation wasting the entire Thursday evening I hated field day cleaning cleaning is fine but doing it because everybody else can't keep the room clean I definitely did not like that being away from family I really hated that especially if you have like a girlfriend or a wife like that really sucks to have to be away from loved ones but you know you know that signing up but it still doesn't suck any less so yeah begging to take leave now they tell you like yeah you get 2.5 days of leave per month you can go whenever you want bullcrap man like it's really hard to take leave at times especially if there's a lot of work to be done you feel guilty about taking off or sometimes they'll just straight up be like no you can't take Lee or you send your request up to the First Sergeant you wait three months and then you find out it got denied so taking leave is rough in the military when you're a civilian you can take off whenever you want so yeah taking leave that really sucked duty I do not miss duty at all now if you don't know what Duty is I created a video on it but the gist is you stand guard for like 24 hours and make sure nobody kills himself or sets off fireworks now I always got duty on the holidays I had it on like Thanksgiving Easter Christmas Oh God fourth of July I hate duty I hate it and finally the list goes on and on but to keep it short and to keep it brief my last topic is living in the barracks in general I really hated that I mean now I've got a nice home and life is great but when you're living in that small barracks room with two or three other roommates and people are constantly stomping upstairs and gotten loud music down the hall and yeah I mean I'm just a homebody and I like my peace and quiet so living in the barracks uh definitely at times was crappy but on the flip side of all of this on the flip side it can be great like living in the barracks with your friends a lot of people you'll miss that when you're gone like part of me does hate it but the other part of me is like yeah I miss a camaraderie there are a lot of great things about the military and the Marine Corps that I miss the pros definitely outweighed the cons when it came to joining the military I do not regret it and I still I loved it and everything else I loved being a civilian I loved being a civilian you still get a nostalgia for the Marine Corps even though I've only been out for a few months but my god I do not miss it but at the same time you do miss it so if you were active-duty comment below with what you don't miss and with what you do miss and if you're looking to join what are you nervous about what do you what are you kind of like not looking forward to and what are you looking forward to so comment below share the video write me whatever donate thank you guys we'll see y'all later a bye bye

    To clear up any confusion, there's no big bad reason for me leaving the Marines other than I wanted to get a better paying job to provide for my family. Enjoy, friends!! 🙂 Oh and thumbs up and share PLZZZZZ!

    I always liked to be on the rifle range, loved to requalify every year, loved the field. Hated Main Side and all of the trimmings you so aptly pointed out, some one commented on fat Corporals. How about catching a drunk Corporal pissing in your wall locker?" I did, and yes I beat the shit out of him, later I thought I was going to the brig. Nope, had a decent Platoon Sergeant who brushed it under the rug. later that Corporal was meritoriously demoted to PFC. Guess whose fire team he was in. yeah you guessed it. He was even a bigger POS as a PFC. I had to fight to get my leave, I had 60 days on the books. I had to request mass up to the BC. Well it got approved. Do I miss it. NO! Do I regret joining. NO! Would I go again if my country called. YES! I got out in 93, I did 11years altogether.

    Marine corps is a funny experience, you do dumb shit but you’re not alone that’s what makes it all worth it

  • Reply Greezy Mcgill July 29, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    The thing about the Marine Corps is…..you can spend 20 years in there and at the end look behind you and see that you haven't built, changed, or influenced a fkn thing one for all your efforts.  Its just a big emptiness, represented by a bunch of bullshit paperwork in your satchel that no one understands nor cares about.

  • Reply Jacob Pohlabel July 29, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    Everyone I ever talked to about joining the Marine corps said the same thing. "I've never met a single Marine who regretted joining."
    Well I guess I must be a rare exception then

    I don't miss three hours of weapons cleaning, getting our HMMWV's ready to go on a ship (hours of scrubbing rust). I miss the connection that we had with each other. We still keep an eye on each Marine when they need a talk or help and stay in contact. Semper Fi!

    I'm currently ad air force. I gotta say, there's really not anything I dislike. Only thing is you're usually treated like a child in my specific job until you become e-4, usually the e-3's and below are told to do most of the menial tasks and in a condescending way too, but i suspect that's really every branch for the most part.

    Real Marines don't complain about their work, they just get it done.

  • Reply Russell Bogrett July 29, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    What you disliked is just about what the rest of us disliked. I got out because i got sick and tired of saying yes sir to someone younger than me who thinks because they were college and ROTC they were smarter than me. Civilians always get time off? I wish!

  • Reply Colossus Forbin July 29, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    I was in the marines from 1985-89. There were still open squad bays out in the fleet. You know, 'boot camp' type squad bays. Not only did I get stuck with a unit that still used open squad bays, but I was a Communications Center Operator and had to work nights and weekends a lot. Imagine working all night, then getting off and ready to sleep, just when about 40 or so other 'roommates' are getting up and ready for the day. Not easy to get sleep with all the noise, rowdiness going on.

    I was in the brown-shoe Corps. In 1965 we had to dye our shoes and barracks cover visors black. Also had to put black Em-nu on our blouse buttons and chin-strap posts. I was a grunt. We spent many hours linseeding our M-14 rifle stocks, snapping in, doing close-order drill, and running. Had to put up with quite a bit of chickenshit. Although I did serve under some outstanding officers and NCOs, they were the exception.

    Bullshit formations because if one marine fucks up, everyone fucks up.
