    Lady phoned into commanders hotline complaining about C5 flying over base housing and worried it would fall outta sky on her kids in playground. :facepalm:

    I've never forgot that one. Not sure which was dumber, the lady, or the fact they published a response in the base paper. :der:

    I was ordered to counsel one of my troops by some Major from Wing CC for how he spoke to a local (base comm served as phone operators on the weekends). Turns out he'd taken a call from an angry farmer about how Fairchild's KC-135s were going supersonic at low level over his house. My troop, to his credit (and our inestimable pride) told the man "if you hear a tanker going supersonic then it's immediately prior to impact. Since all of our aircraft are accounted for and you're obviously alive, I seriously doubt the veracity of your complaint. But, here's the number to Public Affairs where you can lodge your concerns."

    I told my captain, and once we stopped laughing we agreed that we weren't writing him up for anything. We were impressed that he didn't merely laugh at the dude and hang up.

    Turned out the farmer was a notorious switchboard pest. Everyone learned his number and it got to the point once we computerized that we wrote a script to automatically forward all calls from his number.

    God bless computer automation.

    We got many of the noise complaints in the command post at Mildenhall. Air Force was writing checks for cows that wouldn't milk and chickens that wouldn't lay.
    That and every time the SOG flew helo night training sorties you had a 50% chance of getting a UFO call.

    We used to get calls from (not to us personally) local residents complaining about our demo ranges. It’s shaking my house and they have been going for 12 hours.

    Ummm you moved next to post fucker... just wait until we practice our night breaches at 2am. :rofl:

    That should change your stress levels. You'll have to unlearn reaching for the Code 3 switches on your deliveries though. You'll still encounter folks that will be freaking out about getting their deliveries, yet put into perspective where you've been, it'll just roll right off ya with a smile. Best regards, trading wheeling a stretcher to an upright dolly, off the end of a powered lift!

    Yeah, WTF, if it wasnt for the warm winters were having, the cold should have killed them off! You have my permission to hang out at the border, and fire at will.

    It would appear North America, as a continent, has a feral hog problem, perhaps we should work together versus fighting one another, pointing fingers, and name calling. IMHO ... but I'm just a simple BoA minded MooseMan...I don't know much.

    Read the article... appears Saskatchewan government's anti-science minded approach is the core problem. :facepalm:

    I hate science deniers...:frusty:
