A Lot Less ManWithPez
Monday, June 6, 2005

I'm afraid that's what we're looking at here. Now, I'm not so conceited that I think anyone's waiting with bated breath about my comings and goings on this site, but...well, someone got pregnant.

You see, I work in a maintenance squadron. I'm coded for working aircraft fuel systems. Its what I'm supposed to do. Instead, for the past year and a half, I've been working in an office. Mostly, because I'm so much better at that than working on aircraft. They're taking my job away, and giving it to another troop that just got knocked up, and thus can't fulfill her duties. Am I bitter about this...yes and no. If I had known that they would take the job away so quickly, I would have never taken it. I've lost three months valuable training time I could have been using get acquainted with the planes I'm supposed to be working on. Also, a lot of people from my shop have been somewhat pissed that I got this job. I guess they wanted it or something. They are looking forward to my return to the shop just so they can make my life harder,...not that going back to the shop would be easy in the first place.

So, you won't be seeing a lot of me anymore. Not nearly as much as you have been. And, that makes me sad. And angry. I mean, I am in the military, sworn to follow the orders of those appointed above me. Its just that those appointed above me are asshole, more like than not. It also hurts my feelings a bit that no one thinks highly enough of my work to let me stay in this position. There are other places they could put this lady...places not here. But, it is the easiest solution. So, my bags are packed. I have to say that its been fun, doing the everyday thing, but I reiterate, I won't be around much.

Aw, nuts! I'll miss reading your amusing posts. You're definitely a fixture around here and the site won't be the same. Good luck in your new sitch.

I feel your pain Pez.

I use to be in the Rangers. I loved it. The camaraderie, the challenge, the tight knit unit/family feel. I loved all of it, except for the boneheaded officers in charge. I got tired of the politics, the butt kissing, and the other bull that goes along w/ military life. You know what I am talking about.

The bull and officers is what convinced me to get out after 8 years in the Teams. I am not saying you should leave, only that I know what you are going through.

Hang tough Pez. This too will pass.

Yeah, that sucks. Hopefully in nine months or so they'll give you your job back.

That is exactly why I will never follow my brothers steps into joining the military. He's away for basic training this summer. He's in the Canadian Reserves in the Com Squad. And he's always pressuring me into joining the military. But it's that kind of shit that someone has to put up with is part of the reason I would never want to join the military.

I sympathize.

Damn the man! Sorry to hear, Pezman. I'll still be looking forward to your flylogs - guess I won't be seeing them the minute you post them anymore, though.

Which reminds me Weirdess...The Thin Man was on Sunday...I finally got to see the whole thing...I have to find that one on DVD, and get another copy of My Man Godfrey!

Good luck with your new position and keep flyin'ManwithPez!

Keep your chin up. Maybe some of your shop people have missed you, like we're going to miss you. Yes we will.

Good luck with the planes.
