    The lines. I hated standing in some long-ass line everywhere I went, no matter what I was doing or how important/trivial it was - the mother fucking long ass lines were always there.

    Dislike: Field day, stupid people in charge of you (like 50 IQ points lower, seriously), retarded sick call procedures, formation runs (i'm a rabbit and don't like to keep pace with slowfucks), O's with superiority complexes, Walking Mattresses, bullshit training and retraining), invasive fucking assholes all around.

    Like: range time (A bad day on the range is a still a good day as long as nobody gets hurt), wearing the uniform (yeah I miss it), leading younger troops and trying to make them better, camraderie among your buddies in your unit.

    :hsugh: Guess I've got it good. Don't work or live on a base. Work in a DoD building with about 13 other military folks. No drills, extra duties, or details; show up M-Fri and work my 8 hours. The only thing that sucks is driving to base if I need to go there. :hs:

    the bullshit. sitting around the company for hours because there is nothing to do, and being handed a task at 1645.
