I hate deployed Christmas. The rest of the Army is on half-day or day on day off and we are on 12 hour shifts 7 days a week and can't get anything done with our rear detachments.

I was going to start a thread with the same name.

Yesterday my truck blew a head gasket, today I have to work 4AM - 5PM then at 7PM fifteen people are coming over for dinner and to make it worse both kegs kicked last night. Tomorrow will be better because Santa comes tonight.

On the automotive note I got to "I told you so" my ex-wife today. A few years back while I was out of the country she traded my supercharged 00 Mustang GT in for a Chevy Blazer. We were in mid divorce at the time and she stuck me with an 02 GT that she had purchased but was upside down in. Ok, back to my point. She tells me on the phone today that her blazer that was just out of warranty is now running on three cylinders and and the computer has taken a poop. Repair bill 4K. Just about the amount she traded my car in under it's value. The best part is she is in Germany so working on her chevy is looked at as an import.

So it gets even better! My ex-sister-in-law was in the process of marrying a used car salesman at the time so my ex trades my car into his lot. Two weeks later he married the sister, she joined the Army as a dentist and deployed to Iraq. This guy quits his job and decides to be a house husband for a year.

Add my ex-father-in-law into the mix here. He hated me because I was only an E-5 at the time and didn't make enough money for him to think I had any value. My divorce goes through I don't have to deal with that jack hat anymore and he inherits an unemployed son-in-law. He has been fuming about this guy not working for two years!

So they are all meeting for Christmas in Germany today. My ex is telling her dad about the lemon the new son-in-law sold her, he still doesn't have a job and she is going to ask her dad to borrow money to buy the 02 she stuck me with!

THANK YOU LITTLE BABY JESUS!

Hey last year I was wrapping presents until 6AM Xmas morning, and the kids woke us up at 720. I think I was still a little drunk.
