The Impertinence!

Honestly, I don't know where some people get the nerve!

There is some hooligan, who, on occasion feeds me information. Everyone in my orbit must provide a service.
I hadn't heard from him in a couple of days, so today I email him.
"Clearly I am being ignored! I thought for sure I would get some kind of comment on the job I did with the Navy's 232nd birthday this past weekend.
Fine, fine........no time for me..........needs of the Navy and all that.
Humph!
Maggie"

This is the incredibly impudent reply.
"Such a chick. In need of constant affirmation. Fine! I'll look. Just sec...."

To which I fire off:
"Chick? Chick! I am so much more fabulous than a chick! What impertinence! You would never make it in the Rotation!
I wrote "needs of the Navy" because I wanted to convey that I do understand that "the needs of the Navy" come ahead of paying attention to me."

The Hooligan's comeback?
"LOL..."needs of the Navy" is a phrase used in so many situations, always to the Chief's advantage. And what the heck is the Rotation?"

Oh? Nice. Be disrespectful and then want something? It's not that easy! I send:
"What do you care? You can't make it anyway. LOL"

I get back a little pleading.....I love it when they beg!
"Dammit!!! Now you've got me curious. C'mon..."

Trying to get on my good side......like I have one!
But I'm having a good day, sooooo......
"Well, normally I am described as a cruel and despotic wench........however, just this once.........I'll take pity on you and direct you here."

I don't know if it helped him though. In a subsequent email he made the suggestion that I be flexible. LOL Flexible? I don't think so.

As usual I have no time for your nonsense MAGGIE.. I am here to post a goodluck for my BFF SB. This is to wish him the best, thank him for his service and let him know he will be missed.

SB, my friend, this Gaelic Blessing is over used at times but I feel most appropriate in this moment.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Thank you. I sincerely appreciate your comments.
Just so you know..we're ready and eager to go and accomplish the mission. As we say."Cocked, locked, ready to fire!"
Ask Maggie about my philosophy that I shared with her in email the other day.
Stay safe, be well.
