That is all that the Michaeltron is to the Navy -- a device. A cog in the motherfucking machine.
I have been looking forward to this weekend for a very long time. I have been underway and in shiftwork for a good chunk of this year so far, so with the way the duty schedule has worked out, I have not had a full weekend off (sometimes having to come in Saturday AND Sunday) since sometime mid-January.
So today is Friday, the day that everyone busts their asses to get work done and go home. The command decided to audit administrative shit in my division this afternoon and was most displeased with two programs for which I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE. I got off work at nine this evening (2100 for you military bastards). A fourteen hour day on Friday. And now the Man is making my division come in to work full days on Saturday and Sunday
