    Default Airman Ironed His Chin (and other dumb things Amn do)

    Keesler, circa 2000. After lunch break the students returned. One of mine (NPS-type) had a red burn mark on his chin. I asked what happened (thinking he burnt himself with hot food). "Ironing" was his answer. I asked how does one burn their chin while ironing...to which he stood up and demonstrated. Seems he was ironing out a couple of wrinkles on his blue shirt....while wearing it...and looked down to see how it was looking.

    We presented him with the "IronMan" certificate at graduation...lots of laughs over that one!!

    What dumb stuff have you witnessed from Airmen (of any/all ranks)?

    I burned my chin while in basic while ironing. Nodding off while ironing not a good idea

    We had a "cutter" Airmen...came in with a bunch of cuts up and down his forearms. Stupid teen angst shit.

    He was forwarded to mental health and was discharged shortly afterward, not just for that, but some more "poor emo me, give me attention" conduct as well.

    I didn't have to deal with this first-hand, but I stopped in to talk to a former Boss (MSgt) who was dealing with unique dorm issues. One of his Airmen and the Suite Mate from another workcenter didn't get along. Their current problem was their shared bathroom. Apparently, a turd ended up on the floor in front of the toilet - and neither person would claim responsibility for it or clean it up. Supervision became involved...

    I didn't stay to see how this panned out, but I'll never forget the look on my former Boss's face when he said: "You are not going to believe what I am dealing with right now." I always imagined the Shirt going over and cutting the turd in half, making each Airman clean up an equal share - but I really don't know how this was resolved.

    Wasn't that the same guy dogging on the desert queens on the freedom bird?

    Rainmaker was once called in by CE tent police to inspect a female SrA's tent space. We had framed out temper tents and said female had been urinating on the floor at night and throwing a towel over it(rather than being bothered with getting up and walking to the pissers). After some counseling she presented her "Bladder infection" Defense to the tent police authorities and successfully completed the remainder of her deployment. Not sure what happened to this kid. But, Rainmaker sure she prolly went on to become a successful SNCO since she had a pretty nice ass.

    "A drunk could not have climbed to the single-story hotel’s roof," he said. "Even for a young man in good shape, it would not be easy to climb onto the rooftop."

    Not true. Rainmaker has scaled many water towers and bridges back when he was a young drunk.
