Tuesday, August 23, 2011 frustrated!!

WARNING: This post is a bitch fest and I am PMSing.

As a military spouse, I'm often stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to my husbands' command. If the "uppper management" is doing something unethical or just plain idiotic (which happens VERY frequently with this command), I have to hold my tongue because I am a direct reflection of my husband. Basically, I have to sit there and let them insult not only my husband, but all of the soldiers in the company. Todays circumstance was really ridiculous--to the point where Kevin stood up to his ghetto ass "Upper Management (UM)" and asked him why they were being held because of a lieutenants irresponsible behavior. Allow me to elaborate: This super young lieutenant brings her $600 iPad to work, leaves it unattended on her desk, it gets stolen, and she whined to the command about how her PERSONAL PROPERTY got stolen. Then, the command holds everyone at work until the iPad was found, which BTW, it wasn't. The thing that gets to me is that the commander can extend work hours, but not for something like this, so the complaint (from more than one person) got shoved to the side (due to that little "loophole"), as usual, as well as the audacity of the Lt to complain. Its not the soldiers fault that she cant be responsible and keep an eye on her stuff. Ugh. As a spouse, I want to confront the command sooooo bad, but I can't. I have to just let them treat Kevin and the company like crap. Anyway, Kevin confronted the UM, and the UM twisted his words around (this guy NEVER admits fault--he's ghetto and a piece of crap leader), and basically told Kevin he was being emotional (Kevin was PISSED) and to take the rest of the week off. So frustrating! Long story short, not one but TWO complaints were put in from 2 different people tonight. Somebody has to get this guy out of command, he is toxic. He shows no support to his NCO's, and treats the enlisted man like crap---hello, HE is supposed to be the representative for the enlisted man, and support his NCO's. He doesnt. He blames anyone and everyone else for his mistakes. Blah.
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent! This has been pent up for awhile, and I figure my blog would be the perfect place to release some steam!!
As for todays activities, I slept in this morning instead of going to spin class, because my back was really hurting after zumba last night, and I wanted to rest it. I was able to make it to zumba tonight and shake it with my girl Annie!! I'm so glad she's back on her schedule--I missed her!! Tomorrow, I will be going to kickboxing (where I will continue taking it easier) to get a great arm workout. I will also be doing upper leg exercises after class as well!!
Today wasnt all stress--I found out that one of my very favorite people in the world ever is coming to visit in November!!!! Also, I found out about a joint spouses conference happening on island in October, in which they will have some really awesome workshops (such as a photography class and a cupcake (!!!!!) class), and I will be signing up for it the minute registration opens!!
I'm off to bed to snuggle with my awesome hubster--good night yall!!


  1. Unfortunately, I wish I could say some things to people in Brandon's command, but I can't. I just smile and shake their hands when I meet them and talk behind their backs when we're gone!

    As for the Joint Spouses Conference... I went 2 years ago and it was great! I'm going to go this year too! We should drive down together ;)

  2. My husband has the same issues with his LT... I understand that these guys went to college and OCS... but you cannot tell me that guys with 5yrs in compared to a newbie don't have valuable input!

    I saw the joint spouses conference website and am going to try to attend as well!!

  3. I'm so happy to be back on my schedule, too!! I've missed shakin' it with we can show 'em how it's done...hehe ;)
