FT Stuff, part III

Skippy will appreciate this story...

So it should come as no surprise that one of the things that most of the males at FT start missing by around TD-14 or so is attractive women. For starters, the ratio of men to women period in the military isn't particularly favorable. Next, nothing against women in the military, but a lot of them aren't the most attractive. Third, since it's Field Training everyone is in a uniform 24/7, so even those few females that were relatively attractive didn't necessarily appear so due to the whole uniform effect. Finally, all of this is irrelevant because at FT you have about 30 seconds to start day dreaming before a CTA or FTO comes along and starts yelling at you.

Bottom line, something that many of us appreciated at the airport while waiting for our flights was the chance to blatantly stare at attractive women in civilian attire. There was one particular incident and female that stands out...

As you may or may not know, Atlanta is home to the busiest airport in the world. It's also Delta's main hub. We were all flying home on Delta. Somewhere in the U.S. on the day we were flying home there was weather, which meant that all of Delta's flights in and out of Atlanta were instantly bumped back by about four hours. What this meant for us was another four hours to sit around and shoot the shit. I was doing that with some guys from my Det. whose flight left from the same concourse as mine. We were talking when all of us noticed an extremely attractive and scantily dressed female walking towards us. Tall, skinny, and leggy. Long blonde hair. Curves. High heels. Hot pants. Skimpy tight fitting top. Basically looked like she walked off the set of a rap video. Looked something like this:

Or this:As soon as we noticed said female, the conversation immediately stopped mid-sentence. All heads turned and began tracking, doing our best to show that all men are no better than Pavlov's dogs.

"...God bless America."

It was nice being back in the civilian world.
