Why did you choose accounting lol. That's so boring compared to what you're capable of

It's like choosing to be an 88m and then wishing you never left being manager at a b4. Like no freaking duh it sucks, you chose an awful route

From military officer to B4 and I will reiterate that the grass is not greener. You can always replicate that Company Grade duty experience by making sure you locked all your doors at 2am. And then wake up your significant other to drive you (cause your not allowed to drive) to a friends house to make sure that their door is locked. Then fall asleep for a couple hours on a bed and bed set you picked up from goodwill. If your lucky you get to pick someone up from the cops and stay up al night cause that’s just how it works.

You must not have had a combat MOS

The Professional Homeless Person MOS. At least that’s how me and my POG bro’s viewed it.
