Another funny story was about a guy who got the nickname HighTower because he was big and black....
Anyhoos he got the rather cushy duty of cleaning the drill instructors break room every night instead of cleaning the ablutions or barracks.
Whenever he got bollocked for anything, or as it was known then a 'nose-to-nose interview` he just smiled and took it all in his stride....but he wouldn`t tell us later what he found so funny about it.
At the end of the training he told us - every time they screamed at him about some minor thing he thought of what he did every night in their rest room. It turned out he`d been wanking into their kettle on a nightly basis.

lol 5cats, everyone's drill sergeant was a mean motherdrater, that`s why they become drill instructors in the first place.
I remember coming back from the mess hall in the first week of training and I was the last one in the briefing room...he asked me why i was late.
Late? I`m not late sergeant, I`m just the last on e in.
then it all kicked of for answering him back, and the upshot of it all was because I had gone to the shop to buy some smokes, he took them off me and said to everyone else in the room..."if anyone sees him smoking again, they are to punch him."
I`m sure he was just drating with me, but some did try and take it seriously.
As is always the case though by the end of the training we came to a mutual understanding and quite liked each other.
