Again I'm in the ISO office waiting for
the crew. It was lunch time. One of us was trying to open one
of the windows. The gunny sees this and yells, "Keep the
fuckin' window closed. If we wanted it opened we would tell you
to open it!"
Gunny returns to the front office and closes
the green door.
Me, being a smart ass, got down on my knees
and bows a couple of times to the green door then shoots
it the finger.
One of the crew, Julie, tells me to watch
out. I didn't notice it but the green door had not closed
properly and was slightly open.
We all quickly head out of the office and
go to lunch.
On returning to the office after lunch
the Captian, Tweedledumb, is waiting for me. We all think this
is it. They saw me shoot the finger while on my knees. I figured
it was all over. But it wasn't.
Tweedledumb is holding a picture. He shows
it to me. It's a group picture and it looked like the photographer
got down on his knees and shot up at the group.
Tweedledumb asks me, "Did you take
"O.K. but I'm telling you and everyone
else I don't want any picture shot from the knees looking up."
I replied, "No sir, I would never
get down on my knees and shoot up!"
All around Tweedledumb and me are Marines
trying to hold back the laugh they have in them. Tweedledumb, being
stupid, dosen't notice a thing. Just turns and goes back to the
front office and closes the green door. It shuts completly
Marines scatter. Laughing is heard throughout
the office. No one from behind the green door comes out
True story. Just ask Julie. [Next]
