Air Force
« on: July 24, 2017, 11:06:23 am »
A US Air Force C-141 was scheduled to leave Thule Air Base, Greenland, at midnight during a winter month.  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 in 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 hanger, 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 just reprimanded, but punished."

Shivering in the cold, his task finished, the airman takes a deep breath, stands 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 reindeers are beginning to look pretty good to me.  I have one stripe, it's 0230 in the morning, and the temperature is 40 degrees below zero, and my job here is to pump crap out of an aircraft."

"Now just exactly what form of punishment did you have in mind?"
