A dirty Job
A US Air Force C-130 was scheduled to leave Thule Air Force Base, Grenland, at midnight in the winter month
During the pilots pre-flight check, he discovers the latrine holding tank is full from the last flight.
So a message is sent to the base and a airman who is off duty is called out to take care of it.
The young man finally gets to the air base and makes his way to the aircraft only to find the latrine pump-truck has been left outside and is frozen solid, so he must find another one in the hanger, which takes even more time.
He returns to the aircraft and is less than enthusiastic about what he has to do.
Nevertheless, he goes about his pumping job deliberately and carefully (and slowly) so as to not risk criticism later.
As he was leaving the plane, the pilot stops him and says "Son", your attitude and performance has called this flight to be late, and I'm going to see to it that you are not only reprimanded but also punished.
Shivering in the cold,his task finished, he takes a deep breath, stand tall and says, Sir, with all due respect, I'm not your son, I am a airman in the United States Air Force . I've been in Thule for 11 months without any leave, I have one stripe: it's 2:30 in the morning, the temperature is 40 below zero, and my job here is to pump poop. Out of a aircraft.
Now just exactly what kind of punishment do you have in mind?
