    I am not saying I was the hero king, I was not at D-Day, or even present day Iraq or Afganistan. They are doing real tough.

    But I put my hand up, did my part and more than was expected, risked my life and was decorated for the effort. I helped save tens of thousands in Kuwait and Bosnia. I was awarded positional authority way above my rank because I was talented, I really was, believe it or not.

    Now my job is to get in furious fights over parking spaces with half wits who only push paper around. And even there I go the extra mile, I have risked my ass to keep them safe in a very dangerous suburb under some very difficult conditions at night. It is like trying to protect retarded sheep from a wolf pack.

    They have no clue what I do, they could not give a fuck; until that day I decide not to do it.

    I scored a 97% below on the history GRE, a 92% below on the Political Science GRE, a 90% below on the sociology GRE (ok that one is really nothing to brag about), how the fuck did I end up here?

    I will have another beer and think about it.

    And that is my letter from a bad day.

    I will get over it tomorrow.

    Maybe even in the next post.

    Come on Xenophon, tell me I am a loser.

    I need sardonic truth now, if we met I would buy you a beer and then insult your body odour.

    You know the strange thing is when I deal with violent drugged out customers at the Department of Child Protection, or at night, by myself, with packs of predatory animal teens, I do not get angry, I just deal with it like one deals with nature, rain, sun, wind, snow.

    But when I deal with the rude, condecending fuck heads I am actually protecting from the ass kicking of their lives, they often piss me off to the ends of Earth and beyond the Big Bang..

    One more reason to drink and have sex with some of them in the stairwells.

    Any self respecting drunk would delete this thread and return the the regular regailing inebriated programing, but like Shitfacedlock I want my pound of self-pity.

    They were more grateful in Kuwait Sparky my friend.

    Humans, if you expect loyalty expect heart depletion, not break, but depletion, because it drains ounce by ounce.

    But I still believe our heart is a renewable resource.

    I feel your pain.

    Smart don't count for much, amigo.

    Why didn't you go to graduate school?

    Then, after you discovered that your MA or PhD in polosci was completely worthless, you would be the best educated as well as the smartest security guard.

    Look at it this way...at least you're not still paying off your college loans.

    For thirty years I've never figured out why my blood smelled the same as theirs. As a kid, it seemed like when it went bad nobody was around for backup. I guess it just worked out that way. No complaints. Later on in life I found the blood still smelled the same. I guess some things just don't change.

    I don't know much but what I do know to others it probably ain't worth knowing. I hear you.
