Come on now folks..... times change!!!!
Yup. So basically, not having access to cell phones and IGadgets now is the same as how I didn't have access to a pay phone and a TV when I went thru Basic in '89. I, along with my other 100'ish platoon mates, all made it thru. It DID teach us to deal with 'time away from civi life norms" and not being able to talk to our wives, girlfriends, etc. Despite what you think, that IS one of the hardships you have to get used to in the CF. Don't like it? Don't join. Seems simple to me.
When I was in high school they tried making a rule of no cell phones in school...... do you think that rule was followed? 2 years later they dropped the rule and asked students to be courteous of others and to not disrupt the class with your cell phone.
Yes I agree...the generations of today are so ******* undisciplined it makes me want to kick some of them. Citing how your fellow students couldn't follow a simple rule is how you are supporting your position?
If anything, it shows how ******* useless so many of the "me" generation are growing up to be. They don't follow the no cell phone rule, the don't follow the no-texting while driving rule, or whatever, and then justify it with some stupid example like you just did.
You and your kind should know that the "teachers" in the CF at Basic/CFLRS won't even consider tolerating the BS school teachers have to take from the "me" generation.
And please don't try to justify yourself with any more "one time, at band camp" examples.
