Decompression

Sarg is pissed at me.

He asked me to be the squadleader and I said, "No."

Red Lobster burned down today.

I had a gift certificate to go there I hadn't used.

Shit.

That about sums up the start of the day. Hopefully, the night will get better.

Dear Momma Fargo,

Of all the fish joints in all the world, they had to burn down that one.

ROFL!

Tell Sarge to ride that pogo stick,

You can use Red Lobster giftcards at Olive Garden, they're owned by the same company. I think there are other chain restaurants they can be used at too. :)

Damn. No more cheddar bay biscuits.

Hope your day got better.

Red Lobster burned down??!!?? Damn I hate that. Sorry you will miss out on a great meal. But I know you don't wanna see the certificate go to waste, so just send it to me. My RL is active and healthy. I'm a giver like that. Helping out a friend and all…

Bendigo said...

What??? No Red Lobster??? GAHHHH!!! Maybe a nice email to the support website and they could change over your gift card?

I hope the night does go better!
Are there any other Red Lobsters nearby?
I love those biscuits too...and the calamari! I've never actually gotten lobster there though.

MF, The Red Lobster burned down? Oh my gosh....
Squad leader? Does that include extra pay???

I got "promoted" to team leader in Bosnia and Iraq...without a promotion...the Army does shit like that...extra duty, no extra pay AND NO OVERTIME!!!!

but good times were had by all, two trips I'd never have missed if I had to do them all over again.

Aine Butler-Smith said...

Well, here's hoping to a better day.

Crazy Brunette said...

WHY"D you fucking turn it down?????????

I thought you were 'acting' squad leader anyway!!!!

Heather said...

I hope your having a better night.

Give Sarg some more chewing gum for his smelly breath, maybe that'll help...

The Blue Zoo said...

Well that just sucks!

Momma Fargo said...

Hey, all!

Thanks for stopping in! Work is going OK. Lots of rain...no action. Rats. Perhaps this morning...

TechnoBabe said...

Why did you turn down the squad leader gig? Your Red Lobster gift certificate will be okay for when they rebuild? That is a real bummer. The whole week has to be better now.

Momma Fargo said...

Since you all asked the question, I thought I would post the answer. Here is what some of you may have gotten via email to the question you asked...

I was the squadleader for a year when they begged me to do it. I did it. Then...Lepreshawn moved to our team and he and the Sarg are best friends. Sarg told me he felt obligated to have Lepreshawn be the squadleader since he was on the sergeant's promotion list and I had not tested for sergeant. He wanted to make me the fill in whenever Lepreshawn was gone. I said that I would not do that. Sarg said he was told by the Captain, Lieutenant and night Sergeant that I had been doing a great job. The troops told Sarg they wanted me to be the squadleader. I told him to make his choice and I would support him either way. He chose Lepreshawn. Now everyone has asked the Sarg to get rid of Lepreshawn and put me back in that position. I said no.

It's a nonpaid position and is appointed by the sergeant and approved by the Captain. So...that's the long story short. I posted about it a few weeks ago. I'm still upset over it, but I won't be a doormat either. I know I am being a stubborn bitchy woman. LOL

Cara Smith said...

Sarg really shouldn't be pissed...you gave him advance notice that you would not take the position again if they gave it to someone else.

You should see if one of RL sister restraunts will accept the gift card.

passionofthemom said...

*gasps* The hell you say...you're not being a bitchy woman! LOL You're doing what any sane, self-respecting person would do...letting him twist in the wind created by the wrong decision he made. Perhaps next time he has an important decision to make, he'll take the really important info into account instead of letting someone like the Lepreshawn have a job that rightfully belongs to you. =) You're awesome, Momma!! Don't let them tell ya' different! ;)

Ann T. said...

Dear Momma Fargo,
I read all that b.s. about the squad leader Lepreshawn stuff and

YOU ARE RIGHT.

either they give it to you or they don't. They don't get to hedge their bets.

Stick it out! I am crazy about you and especially when you are right.

Ann T.

Deb said...

Well hell...what a crappy day! Hope you went home and had a drink.

Btw, I'm so very proud of you for telling the Sarg no.

I have to chuckle at this because I do my menus out a week in advance and I had written Byerly's on Friday night (it is a grocery store with a restaurant) and then CLOSED...

I kept telling the girl at the service counter, "But, my menu says I am eating here tonight!"

Bethany said...

Good for you for standing up for yourself, Momma.

That really sucks about RL! I ♥ that place! Ultimate Feast...mmmmmmmmmmm....
