An observation

Post by Thumper » Wed May 29, 2013 6:54 am

Thought i'd make an observation from my own experiance and ask (anyone who wants to respond) your opinion: i am 44yrs old, i joind the Corps at 18 and served 6yrs,I was in operation Just Cause and Storm/Sheild,EAS was '93 & I worked several jobs between then & '05 when i enlisted in the National Guard(stupid),i ended up being activated in '06 & did two tours in Iraq,I came home and went back to my job doing the same thing i did before i left, but it seems to me(my opinion) that everyone i work with is the laziest SOBs i'v ever seen,they cry & complain about everthing,come to work late,leave early, feel they deserve a raise,want more time off,do as little as possible when they are at work,& think the company owes them,does anyone else have this perception of civilians or are my standards to high,or do i just need to stop tellin these idiots to shut the hell up & do they're damn job?

No, your obsevation are dead on. This country has turned into a bunch of bleeding heart lazy ass pussies. We can't get government worth a damn because nobody worth while has any idea how to fix it. Hell, our own constitution is looked at by our govt as nothing more than an out of date piece of pape anymore. Our grandparents would be rolling in their graves if they could see what American people have turned into. These last 25 years have turned our people into GIMME GIMME GIMME, ITS MINE.

Hello, men.
I can't agree with you more. They think I complain all the time, I don't say much at all and they're the ones wasting all the time complaining themselves. I told them the reason I don't talk is because ya'll do it for me. That pissed 'em off real good. It pisses me off that I have to listen to their bullshit and I'm the bad guy if I say anything about it.

Carry On
