Today, Captain Joe Schmoe of Report on Conditions will do something half assed….
He will only work half of his tour. He will only work half because it is his last. Today Captain Schmoe will retire.
He has pulled his time and done his duty. He has survived to return home to his sons and the “Saint” that he is married to. I foresee many days of desert exploring and fire buffing in the old “el cheap-o jeep-o” … LUCKY BASTARD!
Anyway, I just wanted to tell the Capt congratulations, WELL DONE, good luck and enjoy. I also wanted to remind him of the twelve words he will need to remember for his 1/2 shift tomorrow …
” Dispatch … send NEXT DUE. We’re out of service due to mechanical issues”
LOVE YA BROTHER …
