Re: MTA training (Re: Called A ''Terrorist'' By A T/O)

Heh. Good one. :)

I've said it before to deaf ears, but I wouldn't necessarily blame the T/O on this one knowing what SOME of the training is about (and you've alluded to some of it as well) ... I suspect that the TRAINING and "what is a terrorist?" in particular is the problem as far as the T/O's reaction goes.

Used to be pretty easy to spot who didn't belong and who did as far as "buffs" go - I confessed to being one when I joined the steel-wheeled Navy. Got flagged off for that pronto - "don't ask, don't tell." Heh. But the "Special High Intensity Training" (or S.H.I.T.) is apparently defective if that was the reaction. You KNOW how it is down there about following bulletins and school car to the LETTER of the law. That's how I see this incident - ain't judging ANY of the parties involved, merely stating where I think the problem is.

Made a suggestion that MTA could help to solve the issue by offering "membership cards" to those willing to get one, got dissed as usual for even suggesting a solution that would make all sides somewhat more sane. Heh. Not that I care ... like yourself, it's a genuinely simple matter of explaining yourself, indicating that you know what the issues are, and asking "may I?" and usually getting the happy result of "enjoy your stay." Then there's those who'd rather pop a cap over bullsquat. Sheesh.

But offered some suggestions, all I can say is I've never had a problem ... everyone already knew what I wanted before I started doing it. Civility and "no chit" has a way of working wonders when there's beakies in yer face. "Be governed accordingly" and indicating that you know what the words are supposed to mean ain't no big thing. :(

But geese being civil? Heh. Better not be your day for a random, brah! (grin)
