Actually the only thing that ever let me down was the lazy *** mechanics. It didn't matter what you brought in a vehicle for. Those turds would consider a complete rebuild operator level then sit there stuffing their faces with their "to-go" plates and watch us wrench for 10 hrs right after coming back from a 3 day mission. If we were lucky we could get one off his fat *** long enough to pass us a wrench.
Good rant Deuce, I have heard that same story many times. It's like the combat units change and the same mechanics stay over there to eat!
