I hate my life. I hate my job (the Navy), I hate where I live (Japan), I hate the dumb NFBSKing bastards who didn't get my bags onto the airplane in Atlanta, I hate the dumb NFBSKing woman at the counter at Narita who couldn't understand the fact that I had to work on the Christmas and couldn't be home all morning to wait for my bags to get here. I hate this entire cold, rainy, stinking island and every damn rainy season it goes through. I'm not too kean on the other ones either. I hate having to train and be in a constant state of readiness just so we can never do a damn thing. Just so we can NFBSKing sit here and wait just in case North Korea invades South Korea or China invades Taiwan, or Indonesia just sinks into the ocean inexplicably. I hate all those little bastards in the states who spend one year out of every two dicking around in port in a piss poor state of training and then after a few months of training get to go out and actually do something. I hate each and everyone NFBSKing sailor that we've ever tried to keep from pissing his life away and has gone and done it anyway. I hate that the last year and a half have been a total burn. I hate that the next year is going to be a total burn, and then the year after that, and the year after that. I hate the dumb NFBSKing bastard who thought it would be a good idea not to train Junior Officers and thought that 4 months of classroom training ashore could be replaced by a buggy computer CD to be completed on ships that don't even have enough computers available for the people who need to do REAL work, who thought he could send officers into the fleet with less training than a deck seaman. I hate my first stupid Captain who didn't think we deserved to be officers and who didn't feel the need to actually train us himself. I hate that all the ambition and desire that I had two years ago has been pissed away. I hate the fact that I'm going to leave here for good in 4 months and that I'm not proud of a single damn thing I've done out here.

Well, er... happy holidays.

Many many people in Asia benefit greatly from the hard work of US service men and women. Being one these people, I'd just like to say: Thank you.

I hope you have an excellent 2007.

I'm not in Asia, but I appreciate your service. I hope things get better for you when you're out of there.

You could bring me back a Silvia or a Skyline GTR! [Big Grin]

Keep yer chin up. There has to be some beauty over there. You don't have to be involved in a war to have to be proud to be in the service.

You should be proud of yourself.

Well, you clearly are making a sacrifice, and those things you hate are not something you have any control over. What you are giving to the rest of us is not diminished by these things - and from the stories I hear of the service, what you describe is kinda SOP anyway.

I thank you and hope that in time your life will be more under your own control and the way you want it to be.

I don't know why you're complaining about Japan's seasons. Japan has FOUR distinct seasons. You may be having a hard time with this because where you are from doesn't have four seasons. Japan is the only place that has four distinct seasons.

Yeah, but apart from that, ASL, how's it going?

Well, at least you have, or had at one time, ambition and self-esteem.

I think I'm the anti-ASL. I love everything about my life except the fact that I'm in it.

It's a meta-hatred, of sorts.

Happy Post-Boxing Day.
