As much as I wanted to cold-cock the swine, I stayed professional in my reactions, but it was definitely a WTF moment. Afterward the two-star somewhat apologized offline for the asshole's behavior. Am sure the group chief in question has retired. Hopefully he either has died, is dying, or will die slowly and in agony. Just another reason why I was happy to see Fort Meade in my rear-view mirror upon escaping in 1995.
    Don't sugar-coat it Otis, how do you really feel about it??:biggrin

    I have color vision problems as well and sometimes if no one is around to ask what that color is I just do the best I can. For laughs you should have included in your rebuttal that your rights under the Americans With Disabilities Act were being violated.

    I remember when the first RIFs hit that place in the 90s. You'd hear ambulances coming up to the building, probably to haul away some lazy-assed civilian whose iron rice bowl was broken due to the RIF. I'd laugh to myself. You could have reduced headcount there by 50% and never miss a beat.

    I got that quote from the McClellan AFB newspaper ("The Spacemaker", or as we called it "The Spacewaster") from when he came through on an orientation tour. I seriously think it was a misquote by the public affairs person who wrote the article. Babbitt had to leave The Ventures before they went on tour because he was too young to play in most of the venues because they served alcohol. Charlie Sexton had the same issue when he played with Stevie Ray Vaughn in Austin--he was only 15 or 16 at the time, so they extended part of the stage into the kitchen and had Charlie play there since underage folks were allowed to work in the kitchen.

    I suspect we once had the same commander.

    Got another one. Got counseled to stay late to work since it was perceived that I worked less than others. I come in early, work through lunch, don't flap my mouth with useless conversation, and manage more than most.

    So I'm being punished for being a good time manager.

    I too am one of those who come in early, manage my time wisely and leave on time, or in some people's minds, leave early. The problem is, "they" only see who stays late, not who comes in early. There was a thread on this.

    Re: Have you ever gotten in trouble for something and thought WTF?

    It was my LAST day in my shop before a PCS.

    My dickhead shop chief called me into the office to inform me I'd be getting paperwork because of the trucks. Apparently, he had gone outside and documented every ding, scratch, and minor dent in our four vehicles. He decided, since I had checked the trucks that morning, that it was my fault the imperfections in question weren't on the waiver card. Of course, these dents/dings/scratches had pre-dated my arrival in the shop, and no one had given a fuck about any of it until then.

    Did I mention it was my very LAST day?

    A TSgt eventually talked him out of it, but still, fuck that guy. A few months after I got to my new base, I got an e-mail that said shop chief was going to jail for kiddie porn. Karma's a bitch.
