  •  I'd been in the Marine Corps for over (6+ / 0-)

    five years and was working at a communications battalion, when I heard we were getting a new staff sergeant.  No big deal, normal paperwork, blah blah blah, right?

    Until I heard her voice carrying down the hall of the battlion building.  It was one of my former DIs.

    My FIRST thought was, "Oh shit it's Sergeant Carter oh shit", in a near panic.  Never mind that it was five years later, I was a sergeant myself, and she'd picked up another rank.  It was crazy.  XD

    So ... yeah, I might have to agree that it would violate the "cruel and unusual punishment" clause, no matter how much I'd like to see it, LOL.

    If you want to fight and die for my right to sit here and bitch, sleep with whomever you want.

      I am assuming the two of you had a very different working relationship the second time around ...

      My I find the strength to do the things I already know need to be done.

      •  That's putting it mildly. :) (4+ / 0-)

        We actually got along really well once her job was not "terrorize poor little recruits".  :D  

        Although she still never missed a chance to give me crap about my hair.  (Flyaways and such are HUUUUUGE no-nos, especially in boot camp, and I think I spent more time getting in trouble for my hair than I did for anything else, LOL.)
