Yesterday while taking care of National Guard stuff an awkward situation arose. We (all the soldiers) are sitting in the bleachers talking to our platoon sergeant. And hes asking for volunetters for different duties – specifically KP (kitchen duties). And I love, love, to volunteer for extra duties. Keeps me busy. Well, Curtis hates volunteering for anything. So I kick him (subtly) to get him to volunteer and then we can do it together. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
So he gets the hint – after much kicking – and raises his hand. Well, right after he raises his hand another solider does. Meaning that the platoon sergeant now has his volunteers and won’t take anymore. So I’m screwed – because I don’t get to do duty – and Curtis is screwed because now he has too. Opps.
Well, at the end of the day it came down to Curtis having to do 7 hours of washing dishes and scrubbing floors. To say the least he wasn’t to happy with me.
