Reason you didn't get promoted #134

Trip to Afghanistan: Free
Battledress uniform: $100
Cover charge for party: Free
Picture of you "Dirty Dancing" with a female Sergeant younger than your daughter published in your hometown paper: Priceless!

No, wait - I'm wrong.

Household 6 sees picture. Divorce lawyer.
Daughter sees picture. Unpriceable.
Your boss sees picture. You've just had your last promotion, and after Household 6's lawyer is done with you, your pension will be less than a retired Captain's, as far as what you get to spend of it.

Dolt.

Ya see that little red light blinking in the corner of your eye? That's your career destruction light!
