Help, I don’t understand my parents?

I’ve been struggling to find a job over the last 6 months.

My parents said I should consider joining the army.

I did a little research and thought that I could join the French Foreign Legion.

It’s open to everyone, from any country, providing I can bring ID and appropriate documents.

I know that it’s tough, but so is joining the army in the U. K.

It would also give me an opening to return to France, where I want to be, and opens a hell lot of doors for jobs following the 5-year service.

I discussed this with them and they say “you’ll never get in, it’s not for you”.

So why even suggest the army?
