Today, we were transporting lube oil in barrels to elsewhere on base. I brought a FN along for any assistance I might have need of. On he way out of the parking lot, he asks if he can smoke. My first answer was no, it’s too easy to get caught. A standard answer of mine. A few seconds later another factoid enters my gray area.
“You do realize we’re transporting flammable liquid, right?”
Good thing I followed the rules about no smoking in a guvvy, before I even realized what was on the truck.
