What’s Going On Here? What's All The Empty Moaning About?

Yes, I'll make some noise. It's obvious by your lack of vision that you don't know your head from a hole in the ground. Let's address your issues:

1- You don't like the School Bus Monitor Program? Form an Ad Hoc group. Become informed on how THEY view running the system. Get organized. Get others motivated to become involved to change the system. Present your views in an orderly fashion as rational adults. Nine times out of ten, following protocol and acting like an adult DOES get results.

2- AF free oil changes? Have you taken your concerns up the chain of command or is this more out-loud moaning? (Refer to point #1).

3- Don't like AAFES clothing? Grab some catalogs like the rest of us.

4- No decent teenage babysitters? You're not trying hard enough. I consistently employ the teenage sons & daughters of co-workers, thus giving these young men and women opportunities to display responsibility, imagination and strength of character before their parents. Plus, it strengthens relations between my co-workers and myself.

5- Disrespectful idiotic Americans ruining "it" for the rest of us? Grow up, take responsibility for YOUR own actions and give up trying to change other people and their habits. It's a waste of energy and spirit; plus it can't be done.

6- OWC gift shop employees providing service to ID cards and not customers? Refer to Point #1.

7- Problems with Camp Lester Hospital? Refer your complaints or concerns to the Command Customer Service Representative or the Customer Service Representative in whichever ward or clinic you happen to find yourself in.

8- Child Care Center difficulties? Refer to Point #1.

Bottom line: You don't like the system? Change it. Moaning out loud without putting forth constructive effort to change the system simply annoys the people who can help you get what you want.
