Well, what next, the subject of the post, yes. Politics. I hate them because they are stupid games that have no bearing on the reality of a situation. It's like taking lying and scheming and sucking all the fun out of it. Ok, so, I am supposed to move out of my current building so it can be renovated. This has been planed for more than a freaking year! You would think that the Air Force, knowing this, would have made pre-arrangements for the eventual move right? Well no! There is one more business day before I have to turn in my room key and I don't know where I'm living yet. So now my extended 3 day weekend is going to be eaten up by trying to move all my stuff and get my phone transferred over. Now, let's think about that a second. Transfer my phone lines (I have 2) to a room that I don't even know where it is yet. Now, of course I'm not using a normal phone company who can change it over in a matter of a few button presses and what not, allowing for me to call and within an hour have them turned on in the new room, any day of the week. No, I have this silly phone service run by the military and the office is only open on weekdays and take 2-3 business days to do anything. Now, it is possible that they can do this in one day. I know it is. I've seen it done, by them even. It's just rare. In other words, it's a serious possibility that I have to spend the weekend without my phone! No internet!
All of this because of politics. The chief didn't want to have to put us in a room, he wanted to force the army to do it. Now, he lost the battle and had to anyway. Thank god I'm the highest ranking AF person in these dorms or I might be stuck in the building where I wouldn't have my own bathroom! Public restrooms and gym style showers! I think not, I already did my time in that life and I earned my relief from it. Of course, politics are more important than the lives of the little people that they are supposed to be protecting.
But hey, I got brownies today. So everything is good. Thanks again Manije.
