Air Base, Greenland

Postby Young Boy » Sat Jan 28, 2006 4:42 pm

A U.S. Air Force C-141 is scheduled to leave Thule Air Base, Greenland
at midnight.

During the pilot's pre-flight check, he discovers that the latrine
holding tank is still full from the last flight. So a message is sent
to the base and an airman who was off-duty is called out to take care of
it.
The young man finally gets to the air base and makes his way to the
aircraft, only to find that the latrine pump truck has been left
outdoors and is frozen solid, so he must find another one in the hangar,
which takes even more time. He returns to the aircraft and is less
than enthusiastic about what he has to do. Nevertheless, he goes
about the pumping job deliberately and carefully (and slowly) so as not
to risk criticism later.
As he's leaving the plane, the pilot stops him and says, "Son, your
attitude and performance has caused this flight to be late and I'm going
to personally see to it that you are not only reprimanded, but punished.
Shivering in the cold, his task finished, he takes a deep breath, stands
up tall and says, "Sir, with all due respect, I'm not your son; I'm an
Airman in the United States Air Force. I've been in Thule, Greenland
for 11 months without any leave, and the reindeer are beginning to look
pretty good to me. I have one stripe, it's 2:30 in the morning, the
temperature is 40 degrees below zero and my job here is to pump shit
from your aircraft. Now just exactly what form of punishment did you
have in mind, sir?"
