Skippy (or enslaved staffer), (Note from skippy: Enslaved staffer! I want one of those!)
What follows is my meager attempt at adding a few items to your list. As in the original, everything on this list either happened to myself, or to a close friend (the two of us have a bit of a rep). Spreading a little bit of insanity every day while deployed to Afghanistan actually kept us sane. Most of these list items have stories that go with them, and I will gladly share them with your readers if you and they ask for it.
So anyways, here goes. A list of things I’m no longer allowed to do in a Canadian Army Weapons Maintenance Shop:
(Submited by Tekno)
1.) “It’s a device to make you ask stupid questions. I see it works well.” Is never an appropriate answer when someone asks me what I’m doing.
2.) A hammer is very rarely the appropriate tool to use when fixing small arms.
3.) A sledge hammer is never the appropriate tool to use when fixing small arms.
a.) Especially if the operator is watching.
4.) The “Weapon Gods” to not exist, and we do not need to sacrifice a pistol before range practice.
5.) Pants must be worn in the vehicles at all times.
