A guy I work with was a trigger puller/ door kicker in the Army (for civilians that means he was an Infantry soldier).
I was a wild land fire fighter in the Air Force so I had to do a lot of stuff that grunts had to do. Hike through mountains for days, carry a heavy a## ruck sack, that sort of shit.
So me and this guy are CLOSE friends because civilians don’t get our sense of humor. It’s not a bad thing, people just don’t get it. Seriously if he killed a hooker in mexico and a Cartel was chasing him, I’d literally be a phone call away from mounting up a rescue op.
He came in this morning, punched in and the shop foreman pulled him into the Service managers office. I didn’t think anything of it. Next thing I see if my buddy coming back in civis (regular clothes) and turning all his uniforms in.
I walk outside with him and ask him Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Apparently he admitted to our Service manager he has Military connected Anxiety issues. The service manager freaked because this field can be a little stressful (lol) and told my buddy that he didn’t tighten the drain plug on a car and the engine blew up. So they had to let him go.
Ironic, because he admitted to his health issues last Saturday. And this guy is squared the F### away. He doesn’t make mistakes like that, and the mistakes that he does make he always catches before it gets out of his bay.
I’m fucking furious right now, and I’m sending my resume out to other employers. I don’t know what good it will do because it seems like this field is full of shitty management.
Maybe it’s me……
BTW the service manager that fired my buddy has a yellow ribbon on his car supporting vets.
I want to piss on that sticker.
