I gotta get up at nine oh clock five nights a week and like, go to work. i was there for 13 hours yesterday. and i gotta eat food every couple of days or ill die. and drinking, making sure i get my daily amount of liquor is harder than you might think. i mean, how would you like to have to go to the liquor store at 9am?
I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas. Well f you because he saved your ass from people like Sadam Houssein and don't go thinking i'm just a minupulated trailor trash illiterate for taking up for him because I'm smarter than 90% of the world.

i wish. 8-9am is just as busy as 7-8PM (closing hour) in my experiance. of course, if its 9am and i need my fix i go to the ghetto liquor store by my house. if its later and im stocking up for the weekend i go to the good liquor store downtown.

Oh, please. At least you're not getting mortar rounds fired at you on a daily basis. Liquor? What liquor? Oh, that's right, no alcohol in Iraq. At least we have internet and phone, for 30 minutes a day each respectively. Oh, wait, I want a hot shower. Damn, guess I'll have to wait until 0300 when no one else is taking one so I can get at least two drops of hot water. 13 hour workdays? Meh. I'm up and going at 0500 every morning and get off around 1900-2000. That's cramming a PT session, two meals, and plenty of time under a truck in my schedule.

BOOM. Mortar, get your shit, run inside the building! Continue to sit there in a concrete building with 30 inch walls for 2 hours after all-clear has been given because some jackass decided to go back to shopping at the PX before calling or coming back to the company after being allowed to do so. Sleep in a 15' x 20' room with 5 other people and try to stay out of each others personal lives. Not to mention dealing with the ever-wonderful scent of boot feet, ah, doesn't that smell truly magical? Wake up having to piss at 0200, then realize you have to take your weapon, a reflective belt, and flashlight with you. You know, just in case some random insurgent sneaks up on you taking a leak. When you hear the sound of a raging river of piss hitting the porta-john floor, you wonder if you should have worn shoes and brought that ever needed flashlight into the pitch-dark pisshole.

Carry a weapon around, but don't you dare put a magazine in it. Oh, you can have the rounds, just don't you dare use your weapon. Take that bastardized M16A2 with you everywhere. Shitter, shoppette, chow hall, MWR tent, work, and then sleep with it no more than 2 feet away so it's always in arms' reach. That wonderful armor plating? Watch a 5.56 round go right through it and realize that the iraqi insurgents fire a larger and more powerful round (7.62). Wear a 30 lb. vest that will stop, if you're lucky, 2 bullets. Wear it everywhere you take your weapon. Toss a 6 lb. Kevlar helmet on your noggin and you're set for business. Realize that you're doing this for a fraction of what civilian contractors are making (in my case, maybe $24,000 this year).


It could be worse. No matter what happens to you in life, you could always be in a shittier situation. Sure, I volunteered for the military. Sure, I volunteered to go to Iraq. Does that mean I enjoy it? Did raising my hand and agreeing to the fact that I'd follow orders from idiotic superiors make it easier? Does the idea of defending a country of greedy assholes make my life better?

No.

Contemplate all that you have to be grateful for, even if you don't think it's worth it. Life could always be harder.

I have to get up to go to work around 6:30-6:45 MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

I work until 3, usually.

And then I go to school.

Work, school, work, school.
That's about when I met nelly, she was the village belle.
I was just a panderer, but I loved that girl like hell.

Then along came a city slicker, all finely dressed and gay.
Before I knew it, the son of a bitch stole my nelly away.

So I'm just resting my bones a while, and then I'll be on my way.
I'll get the runt that swiped my cunt if it takes till the judgement day.

Whoa, hold on a second there. You volunteered? As in, "I'm a volunteer!", or as in "I'd rather volunteer now before I'm forced to go, as I'll be anyway in a matter of weeks or a few months at best, because the timing is more convenient right now or whatever"? If it's not the latter I don't really understand it, seeing as you spend a good 10% of your time here complaining about the army.

Shit I know what you mean. I have like, the exact same life and it's really hard. I also am forced to go to Surdyks (best liquor store in the whole city) at 9 AM, sometimes 10, or even 11. Sometimes if I get there at the right time, I can get drunk before i even leave the place. I even have to sleep all day and miss out on the busy mish mosh that is our productive society. Life is really unfair.

Anyhow, sorry to hear you're doing so "badly", your recent "entraptment" must be very rough on you.

Anyway, it could be worse. You could have to get up at 4:00a and work for 18 hours daily.

im fucking disapointed in some of you. am i the only one left who knows what sarcasm sounds like? i admit it was a crap idea for a thread, but christ i did my best to make it clear i was fucking joking. the only saving grace this thread has is the angry replies, they gave me a good laugh this morning before i went to bed.
I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas.
