Overheard Today

Noncom1: An issue would be that I arrived here three weeks ago, and this past Friday was supposed to have a financial meeting. After a roomful of us sat there for 30 minutes we found out it had been canceled because of a short day. Maybe letting us know would have been nice.

Genspokesman: We couldn’t announce the short day because of the inspectors. Your first shirts should have known.

Noncom1: No one told me.

Noncom2: My first shirt didn’t know.

Noncom1: And so I’m still waiting to file travel vouchers.

Genspokesman: Well they should have known. But we couldn’t tell everyone because of the inspectors. And no one told you not to file travel vouchers.

Noncom2: I was specifically told not to until I met with financial.

O1C: Me too.

A1C: Me too.

Whole room: Yeah, us too.

Genspokesman: Well that was bad information. But doesn’t our system work great here?

Whole room: Dead silence

It was the funniest/saddest thing I’ve heard in awhile. They were so set on defending their system that they couldn’t even realize how broken it was. Funny, sad, it’s such a mad world.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
