My pet peeve..gripe...complaint...or whatever you want to call it.
I have served over 17 years in the US Air Force. There have been several times that our pay has been threatened due to the government not being able to settle on a debt plan. Why should our pay be threatened? We come to work every single day and work hard for the money we earn. I am not saying that someone elses pay should be cut or that people on aid shouldn't receive their benefits so please don't assume that is where I am going with this... BUT...I can't leave my job undone. If I were to take off at the end of the day with my job half done...planes could crash and people could die. Yet they can hem and haw and stall and not get this shit figured out and possibly cause thousands of people to struggle more than they already do.
