Is there a manual for that?

The Lieutenant I work for is one hell of a guy. Retired Marine, second career kind of guy, and he knows his shit. He also knows how to take care of his crew, and I think that is why I like working for him so much. I would follow this man to hell and back, and my whole team agrees.

He is very mouthy, but we have learned that as long as the mouth is going everything is fine. It is when he gets quiet that we all get damn nervous. Luckily it doesn't happen much.

Tonight he is good naturedly ribbing me over something I forgot to sign, but I think he doesn't know what to do with me most of the time because I usually give it right back to him.

LT: Do you need to un-fuck yourself?

Me: You know, I probably do but I'm not sure how. Can you explain the procedure for that to me? Is there an instruction manual? Is that a city offered class? I learn stuff by doing it so maybe you can show me how it is done.

LT: Get away from me. Just walk away.

Hey, at least I can say I actually like my boss, which is a good thing.


  1. Hehe... I love those that are not afraid to trip em up.. I don't get many butt chewings because I'm right there with a remark that just throws them for a loop...and they forget what it was they were pissed about..

  2. Un-fuck. Oh, I've got to use that one in the future.

  3. Love your blog- found you from Momma Fargo.

  4. good god. I love you. I am the same way. I usually just get "the look"
