Go to a local recruitment office this afternoon, based on what little I know about you I would suggest the Army might be a good fit but talk to the guys there and they'll be very helpful. The military can be great and there aren't many that come out with bad stories about their time - drinking, adventure, being looked after.
You really would love it.

You know the military will contribute to any education you want, sometimes paying for degrees? They're very keen on encouraging your development.
The military sounds alright, apart from the war bit. I think I'd go on the submarines (not those new rusty ones though).
Not every soldier in the army goes on the front lines. I know loads who haven't even been on tour.

Why are you helping me?
Go down to that office this afternoon, sign up, then spend the evening watching all your favourite military films.
Unless you go for infantry you'll rarely, if ever be in serious danger. It might get a little hairy but just think of the adrenaline rush and the stories you'll be able to tell over a few pints.
That's good progress, you really should go to one of their offices too. You're in Manchester aren't you?
Wooo go fruit. Assuming you're not speaking shite you should totally go for it.

Do it, fruit. I think it's exactly the type of change that you need in your life.
Plus I think we will all sleep a little better knowing you're protecting us.

I can see the future fruit sporting one of these fancy things whilst sipping brandy listening to Wagner
Had a few friends that went in from school - the ones still in love it and the ones that came out were held in high regard when they went for other stuff.
At what point are you not allowed to change your mind?
We're proud you've got this far fruit. Make sure you follow through with it - just think of what you have now and how awesome it will be.

Military career is good. You get your arse-whipped into shape, get to travel the world, meet interesting people, get shot by them and get a decent military burial.

I have to say I'm proud of you, fruit. Damn proud. Should be a great experience for you

Well you should be able to win the drinking contests, at the very least. So you'll leave a rich man!
