Railroaded?

Good going.  Keep moving forward, or onward and upward, as we used to say.

Now, what's the next goal?

Make sure your W2 gets updated; you’re entitled to another zero!

Ka-thunk ka-thunk...ka-thunk ka-thunk...

That's supposed to be the sound of a train passing over a railway crossing. :clap:

Way to go.

Whenever someone makes Captain, I always think of on M*A*S*H* when Father Mulcahy finally pinned them on after a lot of frustration...

Three years and counting until Major. 8)

(If all goes well, I should be pinning on Major in June)

What are you going to do with that extra zero on your pay voucher, anyway?

Congratulations!
I'll be honest, when I saw "Railroaded" I thought this was going to be a complaint thread about some injustice that occurred- I'm ecstatic to be wrong in this case!

Whenever someone makes Captain, I always think of on M*A*S*H* when Father Mulcahy finally pinned them on after a lot of frustration...

Mulcahy: Hawkeye, you're giving me your Captains bars?
Hawkeye: Sure, why not? I never use 'em anyway.
(Audience laugh)

Or something like that, did that from memory. Good episode :D

Thanks for all the responses. I would have replied earlier, but I've been working back to back 10 hour days in a toy warehouse and I'm beat. I don't know what Santa fuels his elves with, but I need some.

I think I'll use that extra zero in my paycheck to buy some new GT gear.  ;D

Better to be the most junior Captain, then the most senior First Lieutenant
