I have had too much time to think

Since I had a lot of time over the very long deployment I had tome to think about some of the things that bother me. So with out further ado, here is a list of 10 things the bug me about being a Stormtrooper.

10. Blast doors don’t always open all the way.

9. Sometimes I feel like just another number.

8. The brainiac who thought of white amour should try suiting up and hiding in a forest himself sometime!

7. The pension plan stinks -- if you live that long.

6. Can’t see a thing in that helmet.

5. Vindictive captain always puts me on dangerous detail.

4. “Armor forms an anti-blaster cocoon,” my ass!

3. Cheap-ass rifles are way off calibration. I keep missing my targets.

2. Every time I meet a nice girl, she shoots at me.

1. I personally toasted several rebels on the Tantive IV, and I still got less recognition than that guy who just said, “Look, sir, droids!”

Totally ripped off from the Holonet :

Another reason the dislike pilots

I am stuck on a moon in the outer rim. My unit is guarding a flight base hidden in the temperate region. Security is tight and this has caused some problem.

Yesterday BD 978 and I were guarding entry to a bunker-like structure where fighter crafts were kept. A pilot about to do a preflight check approached without his identification in plain view, so BD 978 asked him for it.

"I don't see why I have to show you my ID," the pilot snapped. "After all, it is my Fighter”

"Sir, with all due respect, it may be your fighter," replied BD 978, "but it's sitting in my garage!"

And that is why We are now guarding a Waste Water station.

Sorry for the long absents, deployments are a bitch right now. :)
