My handsome soldier in uniform

In the military, supervisors must regularly fill out performance reports for their subordinates.  Often referred to as an OPR or EPR (officer performance report or enlisted performance report), these reports go into the member’s file and can help determine promotability, future assignments, and so forth.  Many of the notes are simply written in a bullet format. At least, that is how I understand them to work. 

Well, over the years, a collection of the bullet points has been gathered from, shall we say, less than ideal servicemen and women.  The orginal authors are unknown, but we found this particular collection on the site http://fromtheinside.us/humor/humor-epr.htm.  After laughing until every part of our bodies ached, I just had to share.  Oh, and to my knowledge, none of them appear on my dear hubby’s OPR!  Enjoy!

  • Since my last report, this employee has reached rock bottom and has started to dig.
  • His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of morbid curiosity.
  • I would not allow this employee to breed.
  • This associate is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definitely won’t be.
  • Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap.
  • When she opens her mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.
  • He would be out of his depth in a parking lot puddle.
  • This young lady has delusions of adequacy.
  •  He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.
  • This employee is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.
  • This employee should go far-and the sooner he starts, the better. 
  • Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
  • Got into the gene pool while the lifeguard wasn’t watching.
  • A room temperature IQ.
  •  Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it all together.
  • A gross ignoramus — 144 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus.
  • A photographic memory but with the lens cover glued on.
  • A prime candidate for natural deselection.
  • Bright as Alaska in December.
  • One-celled organisms out score him in IQ tests.
  • Donated his body to science before he was done using it.
  • Fell out of the family tree.
  • Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn’t coming.
  • Has two brains; one is lost and the other is out looking for it.
  • He’s so dense, light bends around him.
  • If brains were taxed, he’d get a rebate.
  • If he were any more stupid, he’d have to be watered twice a week.
  • If you give him a penny for his thoughts, you’d get change.
  • If you stand close enough to him, you can hear the ocean.
  • It’s hard to believe that he beat out 1,000,000 other sperm.
  • One neuron short of a synapse.
  • Some drink from the fountain of knowledge; he only gargled.
  • Takes him 1 1/2 hours to watch 60 minutes.
  • Wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead.

So, next time you are walking through the airport, and see a few tough-looking, intimidating soldiers displaying their firearms and seriously patrolling, you can secretly wonder if one of them is the recipient of one of these comments!
