"Private, get out there and mop that rain up!"
@SCBeauty, no joke, had to do that. We had to sweep the leaves up and mop up the water puddle in front of the battalion after a thunderstorm last November.
@ThatOneCrazyGuy, A friend in Afghanistan had to sweep outside the FOB. It was all desert. Lol
@ThatOneCrazyGuy, "hey there's a detail in the motor pool, head over there asap"
"Sure" *walks into the chaplains office to sit down and discuss life for 3 hours*
@SCBeauty, Ever vacuumed grass?
@ThatOneCrazyGuy, I remember those days. It's interesting that you got a mop for the puddle, we had potholes in our parking lot and we had to scoop the water out with shovels. And not just any old shovel, dirt shovels for digging holes. You know... The kind that hold virtually no liquid volume because they're only slightly rounded. My favorite was sweeping the sidewalk... in the desert...
@SCBeauty, actually, even more ridiculous. So... back in the day: I'm a sergeant and I have two junior enlisted guys walking with me. We were heading to squadron headquarters which was across a giant field where we usually did PT and would have our huge squadron formations to hear whatever the LTC and CSM wanted to babble about for the week. So these two soldiers and I start walking across this field, as usual, and a 1SG (first sergeant) and CSM (command sergeant major) from another squadron are walking by us through said field. The 1SG stops and says "hey, sergeant wtf are you doing walking through my grass?" and I was like "heading to headquarters 1SG." He said, "no one walks on my grass but me!" And I guess by extension that means the CSM, too, since he outranks the 1SG, right? He then proceeds to make me and my two soldiers do push-ups, in the grass that we're not allowed to walk on despite having walked on it constantly for like 3 years AND he's currently walking on it. #ArmyLife
@SCBeauty, when your done with that go sweep the dirt road.
@SCBeauty, when ya done messed up real good.
@ThatOneCrazyGuy, that's nothing, ever see the top posts on Reddit? A guy was either mopping up or sweeping with a large broom IN THE RAIN
Thanks to all military personnel on here! I see you as a hero
@Honaw Fierceclaw, not all heroes wear capes.
@AJMalone, most do though because capes are cool.
Military should wear capes
@Honaw Fierceclaw, "Thanks to all the military personnel on here!" Is that including the stormtroopers?
@kittensandbacon, sure if you wish
@Doctor Walrus, no capes!
Well that was more intense than these normally are
I say this every time a armed forces pic comes up thank you to all who serve in the army Navy marines air force national guard
Ah yes, Area Beautification.
Doesn't matter what you're doing. Thank you for signing up.
Thank you to all who serve.
I guess that makes me a hippie
As a Navy Seal sniper: You can't see me.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, no navy seal sniper is stupid enough the publicly say they are a navy seal sniper.
@TheFury01, unless they are out of the military. Then I'm pretty sure it's mandatory to write a book or develop a work out program. *sarcasm*
@TheFury01, it was a joke, I'm not a Navy Seal.
Plot twist: that lawnmower can be reconfigured into a sentry gun
@TriangleTesticles, I'm willing to bet some soldier out there was/will be bored enough to rig up a riding lawnmower with some kind of hood-mounted rifle and ride around making "pew-pew" noises.
That got surprisingly dark
So what was that game, though?
