combat mos? negative
this laptop was actually built by me from scratch from parts i got off craigslist
and the best part is, saying im uneducated LOL
my mos is actually armament electrical avionics systems repair 15Y
to help you out with that i do everything regarding the weapons system and everything regarding the electronics on the most badass attack helicopter in the world, maybe you have heard of a Apache? yes that's my bird
and my gt score is 119
to be in aviation in the army takes the highest requirements especially working on the most high tech bird in the sky
now that is showing off my mos, but i just had to inform you
now from my civilian side, you made yourself look like a uneducated infantry super hoaah.
hope you had a good thanksgiving!

This is so awesome! It looks like you got your info out of a brochure in AIT. Let me guess you still know the Aviation song as well and believe in it? Most high tech bird in the sky, next time your boss lets you out from under his desk take a look across the flight line. Lastly please do come to our Wed. meet at clothing sales during lunch so we can all get to know you better and share some of your helicopter knowledge.

Glad that he actually said he was in the wrong. Most people won't admit when they are, so I will at least give you credit for being able to come back to earth. It's easier to get people to like you if your not being a douche.

It's because I prove you wrong all the time. So arguing is just a waste of your time.

You're still a prick after all these years.

But to be fair, I hold grudges too.
I don't even remember who you are, why you were mad at me or what you look like. I just remember your screen name and that you're an ******* to me who talks a bunch of trash about me to people behind my back.

If you want to try and repair it, I'll give it another go, if not...you know where you can go.

I out a very high value on my life and those around me & as a 12 year vet you should know better than anyone why those of us who stay in for a decent amount of time do it more for those to our right & left, which honestly is reason enough for me to put myself in harms way
You should be putting your life above where the government puts it. We are just pawns to them. If you want to protect your friends, convince them to get out. Help them make the right decision and stop supporting our false wars instigated by the military industrial complex.

Politicians don't let their kids join the military, that's for the poor.

We aren't protecting freedoms by attacking countries for oil and poppies. Our freedoms need defending at home. Foreign Terrorists didn't pass NDAA. Foreign Terrorists didn't start the DHS.Foreign Terrorists don't run the TSA.

Hell terrorism is a false threat that politicians use to pass policies by taking advantage of our fears. Fears that they generated.

How about them Craig's list ads! ? ! ?

I joined the military and my family is above middle class. I was only 20 when I joined, if I knew what I know now I probably wouldn't have enlisted. That being said, I still had good experiences while in, and made me who I am today.

Can always tell when the young kids show up. I have alot of trust fund money and drive a 2010 STI, and even I know that every time I see another Subaru on the road, chances are his car is better than mine. There are tons of cars out there that are just awesome to look at. Your arrogance is astounding; and that's coming from someone who's an admitted grade A Douchebag.

Actually I haven't been around for years. Only about 2. I don't talk trash behind your back, there's plenty of people who dislike you. I never asked you for a repair. I was trying to strike up a deal for a sale on an item you had with one of your "underlings", and after stringing me along for 3 weeks you screwed me, which is fine. I chose to take my business elsewhere. There's plenty of people out there who have stories regarding having to wait hours for a Dyno while you talk to friends, or getting the run around on scheduled appointments. They don't doubt your skills; it's your arrogance that's a huge turnoff. I've even defended you in the past, like when someone broke into one of your cars and stole a ton of goods from you.

And I certainly know where I can "go". I've dumped $6k into my car in the past month, and instead of your shop, I went to Bellingham or Seattle. And I'm sure that's ok with you, you're a very busy guy because you're good at what you do. Just know that some of us choose not to deal with an ******* in our day to day lives if we can avoid it.

Underlings? Ha ha. One of my old employees had a very very bad attitude and made work very hostile for all of us. He had a way of telling people they could buy stuff at low prices without consulting any of us who make those decisions, spreading rumors around the shop, being very rude to people on the phone and in person. He's been gone for quite a while and it has been much more pleasant here.

I'm still a cut and dry guy who doesn't kiss ass or lie to my customers. I'll tell you what does and does not work without hesitation. Many people can't handle that and think I'm an *******. That's fine. It's usually the insecure ones with misplaced ego and a false sense of entitlement that get bent out of shape. I care about the community as a whole and spends hours of my time helping people on a daily basis, so when people disrespect me, I give them the cold shoulder.

People still end up waiting for tunes at times, but it isn't because I'm talking to friends. I treat a lot of my customers like friends so people often assume I have known the person for a long time. If it's going to take me ten to fifteen minutes to answer sometimes question, I'll do that before I isolate myself in the dyno room for hours. If the customer is selfish enough to get bent out of shape over it, then I don't care. There are a lot of people who desire my services and my guidance and that requires sharing my limited amount of time with everyone. I share all the time, if someone didn't learn to share in kindergarten, I have zero sympathy.

So while it may seem like arrogance, and it might be. It's mostly just me trying to juggle the little time that I have with the people who want/Need it. I don't have time to flower **** up or coddle the insecure. I frequently provide more than the customer pays for (to the point that my partner gets on my case "are you going to charge him for that?") and I always charge for less time than I spent. However, when it comes to hard parts, I'm firm on my prices. Products are tangible, taxable, traceable items that have margins that need to be met to even make it worth the effort. If I don't get those margins, I've wasted even more of our valuable and limited time.

So in short, it sounds like you had a"deal"pending with someone who did not have the authority to give you the part at the price you liked. And for all the reasons listed,I had to squash it.

It is sad that say "you screwed me". I don't see how a used part is so important that you can feel "screwed" over it when it was probably still less than it would have cost you anywhere else. Just because it wasn't as good of a deal than you wanted doesn't entitle you to it.

It may. When our government grants themselves the power to hold/detain/kill any civilian without trial/charge or reason for any length of time, it's time to start asking questions.
When your government nullifies every article of the bill of rights, it's time to start questioning their intention and it's time to come home and take care of business on your own soil.
Obviously being a soldier overseas has in no way protected our freedoms as they have been stripped from us by our own government.

If Obama and our politicians care so much about us, why didn't they fight to get the ndaa stopped? Simple they don't. They preferred the power that it gave them over the rights of the individual.

That's why I got out after twelve years. That's why I turned down the $100,000 bonus they offered me. (Back then it was called the patriot act, but it's basically the same as the ndaa)
