Stop Taking Time Off!!
You bastards better knock it off:
- Commander of 015 has hit a new low. Five people each were denied CU for both Fri and Sat on days. This is after the slips had already been signed by the XO. Commander just decided to deny the time, no reason in particular given, just you can't have your day off and slip returned by the watch commander.
What's interesting is the note attached to the returned slips, (which is from the XO to the watch commander) says in part: problems arise when time is approved far in the future and the number of requests accrue over time. It needs to be the purview of the PRIMARY DSS, to monitor this and make appropriate adjustments...to ensure adequate coverage...on the watch.
So, it needs to be the purview of the PRIMARY DSS, and the commander just comes along and denies time, even though I'm guessing all necessary beats would have been covered. (Otherwise the watch commander would have told us there might be a problem)
Another order in the book reads in part: All requests for (time) must be submitted at least 7 days in advance. Requests submitted less than 7 days in advance will be rejected by the XO. This of course is being done for our convenience, so we can take advantage of the tour of duty exchange. Really?
Everything going on in my life needs to be known 7 days in advance? Maybe I can get a job at the crystal ball unit.
Bad to worse in Austin. Maybe if someone pointed out that denying approved time off with less than 72-hours notice was a violation of the Contract and the General Orders, Barb would stop fucking up - not that that ever stopped her before in regard to illegal First Amendment investigations. Buckle up 015, the ride ain't getting any easier.
