Asleep on the Job by THAT1ANDONLY Asleep on the Job by THAT1ANDONLY
This pic is based off a true story, sort of. I'm going to "TRY" to keep the story short and understandable.

()= Definition
[]= What it means

I had Staff Duty [Looking over HQ for a full 24 hours straight behind a desk] and it was boring, as usual. No big deal, I've done these duties many times before. Doesn't make it easier. 0300 hours and I was starting to get tired, coffee and energy drinks weren't working. I started doing the zombie walk around. "Why did I stay up so late last night? :(" Everybody was gone except for me, my NCOIC(Non-Commission Officer In Charge)[My boss for the night"Staff Sergeant"] and one other Runner(Private/Specialist to run errands and do dirty work)[take orders from NCOIC]. NCOIC went to the latrine, other runner was watching the desk and I was 'zombie' walking the premise.
I saw the Battalion Commander left his office door open. The lights were out and I walked in just to check it out. It was so warm in there, he had comfortable leather office chairs. I couldn't help myself X) I sat down in one just to rest my feet, then my arms on the desk, then my head, then my eyes and... aw shit, I was out!
I woke up to the light turning on. First thought was, "Aw crap, sergeant found me, gonna yell 'Wake your ass up! Get the hell out of the Commander's office!'" I wish...

...It was the Commander... and his wife... Lieutenant Colonel [How big is a Lieutenant Colonel? If Shinning Armour is a Captain then he is Shinning Armour's boss's boss. Lieutenant Colonel is just 2 ranks from being a General "I'm sure all you COD and BF guys already know that."]
My thought seeing his face... "aw shit..." I jumped to my feet.
His wife had this smile on her face like "HaHa, your in big trouble =p". He asked me "You comfortable? Wanna sit in my chair? It's really comfortable. Go ahead, take a nap"
"No thank you, sir"
"You sure? It's cozy."
"No thank, I'm good, sir" *shuffle to the door. shuffle to the door! almost there.*
"Okay, if you insist"
*phew, clear* Just before I left.
"Go ahead and call your NCOIC over here."
*damn*... Walk of shame to sergeant, who had no idea where I was. Told him "Commander wants to see you, sergeant.":ashamed:
NCOIC:-X "What. Did. You. Do":-X

Commander told Command Sergeant Major(Highest rank of the Enlisted field), I got yelled at by my whole chain of command.
After my Staff Duty shift that day, I had 4 hours to rest and get ready for my second shift of 24 hour Staff Duty... Then again and again... SO MUCH FUN!!! :dummy: I love Staff Duty 20 hours on, 4 hours off, for 4 days straight. YAY!:dummy:

Enjoy the product of my misfortunes.

The weird part is is that I understand every term in this story. and I'm if that happened to me, I would beg for a swift death because that sounded better
