I ran into a Marine that was griping about the Air Force
He was being a Marine which is to say he was griping about how the Air Force guy was set up in an air conditioned tent sitting behind a computer. He was out in the heat of the day, of course, because that is what Marines do.
I told the Marine that if he had a single lick of sense he would WANT the Air Force guy in the air conditioned tent where he would be able to be sharp and attentive. He wanted the Airdale just the right side of chilly so he would be alert and on his toes.
The Marine caved in on that one because I didn't even get a "yeah, but..." out of him.
Yesterday the mail guy saved me a trip to the post office.
Every now and then I hand him a cup of coffee or a coke and yesterday it paid off. He had a package that required a signature. Instead of leaving me a note to go to the P.O. to pick the package up he chased me down.
When he found me I signed and took the package. It saved me from having to go to the zoo scene at the local post office.
What goes around comes around.
One of the neighbors thinks it is unfair the way the mail and trash guys treat me but another neighbor told her that it would happen to her if she'd just work at it a little.
