Ever feel like a referree???

Monday, February 23, 2009

Ok, mostly the military folk will understand this. I have a junior enlisted driving me crazy!!! I am the acting 1SG for my unit and this Specialist keeps putting me in the role of referree. First it was a guy she dated in the unit that she said kept harrassing her with phone calls after she broke up with him and went off and married some other guy. Now she sent an email to a non-participating soldier threatening to send her to jail for not showing up to drills. (Not the SPC's department anyway to be doing.)


Sorry, needed to let that out. (But yes, I did give the Specialist's Squad Leader permission and actually an order to write her up for her actions.) I can't keep a cohesive team if I have someone like her flying off the handle like that to the other enlisted.

    I completely understand where you're coming from. As a section commander for three years I've experienced several similar situations. I just try to think of them as excitement for the day.

    Good on you for taking control of the situation. Hopefully the specialist straightens up when she receives paperwork on her actions. emoticon
