I don't know how old you are or how many jobs you have had, but you present he same whine we saw yesterday. Perhaps here it was a joke, but I see it the same as yesterday's "Linus wrote an email with curse words in it!" thread. Oh the horror!
Even if I was not a Veteran, I understand stress in the work place. I have been at plenty of jobs with "that fuckup" who made everyone work an extra 20+ hours a week for months on end. I have seen people defend "that fuckup" when people finally get fed up, after months of kindness and ass covering don't change the situation. People have breaking points, and they all vary slightly. Personally, with kids I have the patience of a Saint because they have to learn things. Adults, you get three strikes before I tell you to go pound sand, or something more crude.
As a Vet, I really wish people could see what real anger in the workplace is. The stakes are much more obvious when lives are directly on the line. Correlate that to a guy's life work as people try to do with Linus. His income and legacy both hinge on how good or bad the Linux kernel is/does. Oh I know.. it is much easier for people to whine about the horrors of reading a few curse words at the tail end of a conversation.
