Your Tax Dollars at Work, Ladies and Gentlemen!

April 30, 2008

This post has nothing to do with the fact that I am the mother of nine children.  UNLESS you consider that it DOES have to do with the job that my husband has, that keeps all of our nine children in clothes and food and heat and Legos. 

I know.  Kinda reachin’, huh?  But here goes, anyway, because this is just too good to NOT blog about…….

Last night, my husband told me that he attended a mandatory briefing at work yesterday that covered these two topics……

1.  How to go up and down the stairs in the new building, holding onto the railing without hurting your hands on the textured walls.

I’m serious.

2.  To the male segment attending, how to use the new urinals.

Again, totally serious.

The Army uses your tax dollars to buy cooler, more powerful guns.

The Navy uses your tax dollars to build new subs.

The Marines uses your tax dollars to buy more ammo.

The Air Force uses your tax dollars to give mindless, insane briefings to people who have nothing better to do than actually GO TO THEM!

Unbelievable.

    I can’t believe they had a briefing on urinals. Come on aren’t these guys suppossed to be protecting us. Kind of scary that someone has to tell them how to use a urinal.

    Great post as always. This one really mad me laugh.

    So I guess this means that your husband has nothing better to do than go to them?

    But, you know what, my husband *was* in the Army and they had lots and lots of useless briefings; I’m not sure they were that bad though, they were more along the lines of: “Don’t look at a female in the face, don’t look at a female on her feet, don’t look at a female on her chest, don’t look at a female on her arm, tell ya what, just don’t look at a female. When you talk to a female look at the ceiling that way it’ll be perfectly clear that you aren’t harassing her.” He had these briefings bi-weekly it seemed. It was ridiculous.
