I have a new one today... I bring you SuperSS! .mil edition.
We are going on a Happy Fun Trip here eventually to a far away land. As we all live together on Happy Fun Trips, they have compiled a roommate list for both male and females. It is broken down by rank and gender.
E1-E6 males: 6-7 people in a room with bunks.
E-7s and above: 2 to a room, normal beds
Females: 2 to a room, normal beds
There aren't a lot of females where I work. I didn't get a choice of roommates, as there are only 2of us going. My SSS roommate got informed that there were roommates when she asked what the living situation was (she was at training the past few weeks). It went down something like this.
SSS: So what is the living like?
AFB: 2 to a room.
SSS: Really? I have a roommate?
AFB: Yeah. Me.
SSS: (exasperated sigh) Ugh. I don't like people. Why do we have to have roommates?
AFB: ....... (I was silent, because not nice things were running through my head, and all our supervision was nearby
Awesome Flight Chief stepped in at this point.
AFC: Well SSS, I can always put you with (male name here) or (male name here). Would 5 other roommates be better? Or maybe MY roommate would be willing to swap.
AFB: laughs like a loon
In what universe does a new E-5 (new noncommisioned officer) think that they deserve preference over E-8/E-9s and officers? That's the civilian equivalent of an Assistant Manager getting whiny that they don't have the same office as the CEO! She is going to be highly displeased when I pull rank and take the good half of the room
Don't worry, if things get too annoying, I'll just move into a bunker and install some shag carpeting and a disco ball. Club AFB!
