Admin vortex, usually an insult levelled at the less well organised member of the troop.

Could also be applied to those young female members of the British Army who decide to go all chav and get themselves up the duff thus becoming single mothers with all the attendant admin problems.

"You Smithy are an absolute Admin Vortex"

Easily identified by the loose webbing straps flapping around on their webbing or the failure to bring a KFS on ex, also easily spotted rooting around in the bottom of their bergan muttering that they have definitely packed it somewhere. These vortices extend to block admin and personal admin and usually this persona is the one without Beer Tokens halfway through the month.

( Note - the beer token thing only applies to singlies, us married guys never get beer tokens).
