Good Luck with that, Cupcake

Pick ’em up.
Put ’em down.
Pick ’em up.
Put ’em down.
Pick ’em up.
Put ’em down.
Pick ’em up.
Put ’em down.
Pick ’em up.
Put ’em down.

Anybody remember that?  I do.

Well, we had this Internet tough guy:

Aren’t they so cute when they yap and think they’re all big and ferocious?

What he fails to realize is that the United States Military has been dealing with people a hell of a lot tougher than he is since Baron von Steuben was haranguing Continental Army recruits.  Even in the Air Force (see earlier posts about why I went AF rather than some other branch of service) any TI (Training Instructor–that’s what they were called in the Air Force) had more attitude, more sheer presence, in his left little finger than this “tough guy” has in his entire body.  I guarantee you he wouldn’t raise a peep.  And if he did?  Well, one of the reasons he wouldn’t is that the Instructor has the entire weight of the United States Armed Forces behind him.  The instructor knows it.  He knows it.  They both know that if the recruit really is stupid enough to try something he’ll feel the full weight of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

But that’s by way of an aside.  As I said, the military has been handling this since the very earliest days.  The instructors know how to handle “tough guys”, and are more than capable of doing so.

So…lighten up, Francis.
