ok, so check this bullshit out. I am REQUIRED to wear a motherfucking costume to motherfucking class on motherfucking Halloween. Not only did I recieve one e-mail, but I recieved three from people in my class. "Wednesday is an all or none day. Everyone has to where costumes or no one does. I assume no one wants to wear blues. So be a football player, a hick, a Greek, or a ballerina." #2 "I just wan to add onto C/ Penname's last point in his email he sent out earlier. We as a class have been given the opportunity to participate in a wing morale event --- we can wear a halloween costume to Leadership Laboratory on Wednesday. However, we must all either wear a costume (we don't have to have matching costumes though), or we must be in uniform. As the standardization officer for the week, I gathered some feedback from a few of our classmates in the Cadet Headquarters today, and the general enthusiasm seems to be towards wearing costumes. Therefore, everyone needs to be wearing a halloween costume Wednesday morning, 31 October. C/So and So has apparently made it clear that "dressing as a college student" is not an option (aka you can't just wear civilian clothes). Neither is showing up in your blues and saying you are dressing up as an Air Force Officer or Airman. Be creative. This does not have to be an expensive undertaking. It might be some time for teamwork - maybe ask other people to borrow things. Failure to wear a costume will result in a memo to C/Snuffy and a visit to Captain Snuffy's office. Let's take advantage of this opportunity to be creative and have a little bit of fun! IF you're having trouble thinking of something, here are some quick and easy ones: togas, redneck/farmer/hick, lifeguard, aerobics instructor, ghost, hobo, or a tourist- just for some ideas!" She talked to me and knows exactly where I stand on the matter. I don't want to wear a fucking costume. I'm a fucking college student. I haven't fucking dressed up for Halloween since 7th grade. #3 "It has been confirmed that we will take part in Wednesday's cosutme lead lab. We will be wearing our halloween costumes, so make sure you have yours ready for the morning. I have already discussed this with cadet Falsename, and he has no problem with this." what the fuck is the deal with all this bullshit about being a professional military organization but wearing goddamn costumes to fucking school? This to me seems kinda bass ackwards. not to mention the three fucking e-mails telling me that I get to revert back to my days as an immature little fuck(oh, wait, some of you old guys are probably saying that those haven't passed yet.) am I crazy for thinking this is fucking retarded, or is this one small step for jackassery and one giant leap backwards for professionalism?
