Dumb Airmen
« on: 04-28-2006 -- 20:32:59 »
You know, for the short time I have been dorm manager I've seen an incredible amount of stupidity.  Babysitting someone's dog when you're not supposed to have anything other than fish, keeping a 12" dagger on the wall, leaving empty beer cans all over the middle of the floor, getting in a fight while drinking underage (and with a concealed weapon), constantly being late for bay orderly after ample warning not to be, etc. 

Now, I'm sure most of you have stories of airmen whether in or out of PMEL that will make you shake your head, roll on the floor, or whatever.  If you'd like to share, I would sure as hell be interested to hear about it.

Well at one point while standing BDO (Barracks Duty Officer) 

I had just taken over the watch at 0700 when I got a call from another barracks that a guy was urinating on the quarter deck floor.

At this point I went over to the other barracks where this kid, underage of course was 3 sheets to the wind at 7 in the morning.  He had politely relieved himself on the carpet in a room just off the quarterdeck.  Thinking it was a bathroom,  I approached him and asked him why....... he replied that he did not do it.......LOL  I politely told him that I would treat him like a puppy and beat his backside with a newspaper while rubbing his nose in it.  Now this brought the chuckles of the guys there standing watch.  I ordered him to go to his room and sleep it off.  He said that he wanted to go outside and have a smoke.   When I told him no that he was going to bed he called me every name in the book.  I was such a bastard for not letting him smoke.  Well he finally went to his room.  I told the watches to let me know if he came out.


About 20 minutes later the watches called me and told me he had walked outside and gotten in his car and was leaving.  Almost running over a watch trying to get his plate number.   I called the base police and let them know what had happened and they said that they had already picked him up.........going the wrong way down a one way street......IN FRONT OF BASE SECURITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well finally this kid went to Captains Mast for the offense.  The Captain asked where the kid thought he was going.  He told the Captain that he was going to his grandmothers house in Oklahoma because he was scared.  Telling the Captain that I was going UA, AWOL whatever you want to call it. 

All the kid got out of the deal was Suspended bust to E-2, Suspended loss of 1/2 month pay X2 and he had to write a 1000 word essay on the effects of underage drinking.......... Got off real lite, I think.

While at Lowry between classes, I pulled a few weeks of CQ duty (Charge of Quarters), where basically you sit at the front desk of the squadron dormitory and answer the phone.

Gail Kalbfleisch, a green rope (flight leader) was looking for Jim Chamberlain (currently a highly respected MSgt at McGuire AFB).  Being female, she asked me to accompany her to his room on the off-chance that he may have overslept and maybe forgot his pj's...

After a few minutes of pounding on the door, it swings wide open, courtesy of Jim, who was, naturally, without his usual military attire, or anything else for that matter...

Gail, appropriately blushing, inquired as to Jim's willingness to join them for the morning march to the school house.  Jim, always a gentleman, answered in the affirmative, apologizing profusely for his tardiness, and would she give him 5 minutes to regain his compliance with AFR 35-10...

Jim and I met up again at Ramstein, and had a good laugh over this story...

Wow doc. That's the second name you've dropped that I recognize. I can imagine Chamberlain doing something like that. :lol:

One thing that always gets me is how the dorm residents will trash the s*** out of their own dorm, leaving ToGo containers, beer bottles, food, and other trash all over.  Then to top that off, the other people that live there don't say anything about it, either to the people that are doing it or to myself.  If someone started throwing trash in my yard, I'd kick their ass.  These people just don't seem to get that this is home for them and they have to take care of it. 

I'll have better stories later.  After all, I'm watching a bunch of new kids.  Someone will do something soon enough!   8-)

Okay, my dorm has a quarterly inspection coming up here on Friday the 19th.  I've sent out an e-mail, posted signs, and the shirts have gotten the word out further still.  First comes the supervisor inspection, then the shirt comes through, and finally the command chiefs.  Still, there are always the airmen that can't seem to read and their room isn't ready to go.  I've had a few unhappy supervisors come through here.  Why the hell is it so hard for some of these people to get it?

Most of them are away from home for the first time in the lives and think they can do anything they want. Same thing happens with college kids, but they get to mostly miss out on the a$$ chewings.

Hey, things can't be that bad. You have cable television in your office. :-D

Yeah, I do.  They made the History channel and the Sci-Fi channel digital though, so I can't watch them anymore.  Got to get another box from the company.  Still, I do have the Discovery channel!

Ah, you young kids...  I used to use the tuner on my Betamax to get AFN when I was at Ramstein.  Thankfully I had a Laserdisc player, and the guys would gather in my room on the weekends to watch Top Gun, in STEREO!  Pretty cool, though, when the planes took off from the carrier and the speakers were cranked up!

I may be dating myself just a bit here...

I remember my dad having a remote control for our old B/W tv.  I also remember the same remote for our first color tv.   It was always......boy go turn the tv to channel 7, and adjust the antenna while you are at it so we get a good signal.

Offspring are great when you are to lazy to get up to get the remote. "Boy, hand me that remote."

Boy, get out there and cut the grass and I don't want to hear about  "I am only 2 years old." :x
