AAAARRRRGGGG!!!!! I'm so frustrated. People are stupid and we let them live. My basic plan this morning was to get up a little early, drive to the naval base, go to the Gym and get in a little time boxing on the heavy bag. It started OK because I only live 9.5 minutes away and at 0500 there were NO cars on the freeway. The Coronado bridge was backed up FULL SPAN onto the freeway. (Gee, I found the cars...) Unless I wanted to drive almost 30 miles out of my way it's my only access. I FINALLY get near the base and the stupid guard gate that is only 200 feet from the gym is closed for the holidays. yipee. Now I have to get in line with all the other boneheads that didn't get the memo about the gate closure, (put it in park, turned it off, turned off my lights, tried to meditate on NOT killing the moron behind me with his birght lights on) After about 9 minutes the goob that's directing traffic finally lets us get a turn at getting in the gate and (naturally) I am behind the guy that has NEVER been on the base before and has to ask for written directions to somewhere. I finally get through the gate make a quick right and make a "B" line for the gym and what do I find....NO PARKING signs EVERYWHERE! they are doing road construction and all but a few parking spots (that are taken by the way) are filled with road equipment.... OK then, there are three other gyms on Coronado, No problem...........Now I'm driving all over the base trying to find a gym with a heavy bag in morning rush hour traffic.... "Slight problem. " I find out that the other gyms don't have a punching bag. I asked a lady at the front desk why there's only one punching bag on base. It seems that Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) in their infinate wisdom removed all the punching bags except one. Why????? "BECAUSE PEOPLE HIT THEM..." "Isn't that the point?!?!" I asked... She said, "people hit them and they hit each other, either way, somebody geths hurt." "Y.G.B.F.S.M." I said, "IT'S BOXING! PEOPLE GET IN A RING AND THEY HIT EACH OTHER IT'S WHOLE POINT OF THE SPORT." "It's too violent for the Navy to encourage." She said... "Lady, for the last three years I've tried out for the Navy Boxing Team, Don't give me that Jazz, It's been a long day and it's only 0630" She replied "We have a Boxing Team?" AAAARRRRGGGG!!!!!! I should have joined the air force.
