It's only 9?!

Gods I can't believe it's only 9:00! It seems like it should be so much later! What have I done today? Well let's see, I went to class, as always. That was interesting, you see, I was approached by my immediate supervisor with an interesting question. What was it you ask? Well, I'll tell you, "Hey Waleed, is there something going on in your class that I should know about?" My mind races. For those of you not in the military this means that one of my subordinates has just blind-sided me and gone over my head about something. Who? Well, that's an easy question, Aisha.

"No, is there anything specific you are curious about?" I ask.

"Aisha says that you are being unfair to her, making her do extra details for no reason," he says.

"Oh no, I treat her just like I treat everyone else, but she disrespects me continuously. She did get extra details, for failure to follow orders. And then again for disrespect, and insulting me and walking away from me while I was talking to her." I responded with the picture perfect military bearing.

"Oh, well she didnt' tell me the whole story that's why I wanted to talk to you first."

"Of course staff sergeant, if you need anything else just let me know."

Now, I admit that she does get more crap from me than anyone else, but it's always because she brings it upon herself. There is a difference between asking if you have to, and saying "I don't have to do that and you can't make me. I'm not doing it," followed by the rolling the eyes and the talk-to-the-hand pose and walks out. A big difference. Not one other person in that class ever says anything more than, "Do I have to?" if they don't like what I tell them to do. If I say yes, they nod and do it.

I'm still contemplating if I should say something to her about doing an end run and not jumping the chain of command without telling me. You are allowed to do it, but you tell your supervisor you are doing so. Maybe I should bring the whole class together and do the annoying speech thing? What do you think?

Anyway, then I came home and cleaned, finally got everything unpacked, just need to do some rearranging of where things are. Oh, and I finished the first chapter of Blood Omen II. I'm finally in the real game. But what is my best accomplishment for the evening? I wrote my first Perl script. Right now it's simple but it is a start. I learned the intricacies of SSI and with my Perl script I have begun to work on an imbedded style. It will take me a while, as for right now it's a test type thing. I'm using it to learn so that I can do an imbedded style for a friend, once that is done I'll actually do my own imbedded style.

Anyway, I think that is all for now. It's pretty long so I'll end by saying that I HAVE TV AGAIN! Only a few channels on the antenna, but I have FOX so I can watch the Simpsons. :D
