The time my husband got turned down for Civil Affairs because Finance wouldn't release him comes close, but even then I was more sad than mad.
I can't explain many of the details, but Civil Affairs units go to more places than Iraq and Afghanistan. And one of the places they're going, it would be the perfect assignment for my husband. He is more qualified to go there than anyone else who is going there. But the Army is so fracking stupid that they don't consider merit in placing people. They just deal 'em out like a deck of cards and let the chips fall where they may. So they end up with Arabic speakers going to Afghanistan, French speakers going to Iraq, and Farsi speakers staying home on Rear fricking D.
Today was already a really disappointing day, but this just sealed the deal. I don't know whether I want to scream or cry. Or puke.
