Experience Wanted

Shortly after joing the Army, I was in line with some other inductees when the sergeant stepped forward with that day's assignments.

He handed several tasks out and then asked, "Does anyone here have experience with radio communications?"

A longtime ham radio operator, I shouted, "I do!"

"Good," he said. "You can dig the hole for the new telephone pole."

Sounds about right! One thing you learn in the Army! NEVER VOLUNTEER! LOL . :D :D :D

Lol, Rooster - thank you for the good advice; it is also the case in many work places, and I was therefore nearly always at duty - lol.

Lol, T(h)ink, that looks as if you were also quite often among the "volunteers".

(sigh) it's a commentary on life, Marianne! (Well hopefully not...) :P  <3

Lol, Virginia, I suppose that you were also often enough a volunteer - willingly or unwillingly.



Virginia Virginia Dec 23, 2017

Yes indeed, some of my most discouraging times, Marianne!

Marianne Virginia Dec 24, 2017

Oh, that doesn't sound good, Virginia! I am sorry to hear that.
