I am down with a wheeling trip.

The drive to Cali isn't that bad. Try driving from here to Sacramento to the northern redwoods to stay with some hippies for the night, then drive to Reno for hot August nights no sleep for 3 days then Reno to LV. Oh and that was in my 71 Chevy truck with no radio or A/c. Never again!

one good thing about driving out west is that you have mountains and other stuff to look out. It is totally different out east, 64 between Richmond and Hampton Roads is a 2 lane freeway like 15. It is lined with trees on both sides, so all that you can really see is road, trees, and aggressive drivers. Texas was horrible because there was nothing really to look out, no mountains or anything. I could not imagine driving too far in Iowa, I did for about 30 miles and that was enough. It was all flat, but the cool thing that threw me off was how dark the soil was. It was almost black, but everyone said it was the best soil for growing crops.

That would just piss me off. I decided that because I didn't like only getting a few hours of sleep a night (I have been averaging about 3 hours a night for the past 2 weeks) and I didn't have much going on last night, I would crash out... I was in bed at 8:15. A little under 45 minutes later (you know right after you get to sleep pretty well) my phone starts ringing to let me know that something bad happened at work. If that isn't enough, nobody knows what to do in a case like this except for me. At around 12:30 the phone calls and text messages finally stop and I go back to bed just to be up at 4:30. Then, when I get into work and I tell me boss about it, he says "why don't you just turn off your phone?" Who the **** else are they going to call? You? You don't know the job any better than the lackies do. So, I decide that I am starting to get upset and I go for some PT. **** work for a bit. As soon as I get back, my boss starts asking me stuff like "what does this mean?" "Where can I find this?" ****, I have only ****ing told you or shown you about a million ****ing times. **** this job...

come on Andy you know that debrief is the last stop before support. Could be worse... you could be on a load crew and not be able to operate without your other two buddies.

It just sucks because I took the time to learn the job and now everyone leans on me. I am tired of it. Not only do I get the normal day to day stuff, I get others leaning on me, and Asst. NCOIC duties. Any projects that fall this way, always land on my desk because I am known as someone who gets things done. Maybe if I didn't have a work ethic or others here did, I wouldn't mind the job so much.

It took me a while to learn that the slackers get the same retirement and pay as the workers. All you have to be is in the "Good ol Boy Network" and you can get away with murder.

I knew so many people that just played dumb so they would not have to work. While the workers always got called in on weekend duty because it was known that they would get the job done in a timely fashion.

That is one of the things that sucked about the military... the guys playing in the band got the same pay as those busting arse on the flight line. Just think if you had to work with some of the nonners up in the mpf.

380, 9mm, no 40

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
