In Navy bootcamp, there’s a designated method for folding everything, including your scivies. At the time the method seemed complex, but maybe it was just hard to focus due to having a CC screaming at you while you did it. I remember one kid just didn’t get the folds down and decided he would do things his way. Our CC took his entire locker, bed and personal items and through them out of the third story barracks. I’ve never seen someone so completely pissed in my entire life. I honestly thought he was going to throw the kid out next.
I don’t think it was anger management rather than conformity to military canon law. I saw some of those exact same things when I went through the boot camp not too long ago. I can kind of see a point because when they go over how to do it in actual demonstration and then give you a paper on how to do it and also orally tell you how to do it. There are 3 different ways of explaining it and if you can’t understand that then perhaps you have real issues.
