From Grunt to Shrink...
In bitch & moan

I have a bitch and moan I'd like to share. First, bro this is a great idea. Can't wait to read your book. You're an inspiration to me because I would like to write a book or some such shit myself. Remember when you got fired from being my TL on the MEU because you got into a fist fight. HAHAHA. Now here's my bitch... I have worked for the Asheville Fire Department for 4 years. It's an okay job. 10 24 hour shifts a month makes for some nice free time. Unfortunately the city of Asheville is a liberal cesspool, so the majority of my calls involve scrapping up bums or extinguishing bum camp fires that got out of control. The city has implemented a new policy where we either need to get vaccinated for COVID or get tested every week. A good handful of guys said, "Fuck you! We aren't doing any of it." I complied with the weekly testing because the city compromised and allowed us do at-home testing, and I decided this isn't the hill I want to die on. I'll wait until they mandate vaccination. Last Saturday there were enough people who called in sick due to the new policy, and it being a sunny Saturday in western NC that the fire department was severly short staffed. This caused the fire department to implemented their mandatory overtime policy. I received a text at 0645 telling me I got hired for mandatory overtime. I climbed up on my high horse, and responded with something along the lines of "This situation was created by the new discriminatory policies and mandates. Therefore I refuse to work today." I thought I was doing the right thing, standing up for Truth, Justice, and the American Way! Plus I'm not a slave. How can they make me work whenever they want? This isn't the military. Of course that went over like a fart in church. Now I'm under investigative suspension, pending termination or demotion for insubordination. I think the chief wants to make an example out of me in an effort to suppress any more subversive, rebellious behavior. I guess that's fair and makes sense, but it still fucking sucks. I've never been in trouble at AFD before, and I am going to fight. But NC is an "at will" state and they could probably fire me if they don't like my t-shirt. That's my bitch. Suggestions? Advice? Job opportunities?!? My friend Clint recommended "Ripping the chief's larynx out, and as he looks around in confusion biting his nose off his face."
