It's gettin' a bit dramatic 'round here...
VF-211 did that to a FNG that showed up mid-cruise...left after dinner mints and earplugs on his pillow for when he first got to his "room." He actually lived in the fan room for a while.Had a new guy checking into the squadron while we were deployed. There was a fan room a few knee knockers away from the Ready Room that was about 6' x 8' in size with a pipe and valve running down one bulkhead. The "door" was one of those oval QAWTD fittings about 3' x 18 inches.
We put a cot and standup locker and a folding chair in there and told the guy we didn't have enough racks to accomodate him in any of the bunkrooms. Every night about 0300 we'd send a Sailor into new guy's "stateroom" where he'd turn on the light, verify the valve was in the correct position, sign the tag on the valve, and then depart.
Did this for almost two weeks until the XO made us quit and get him set up in one of the bunkrooms. He was pretty pissed, but what do you expect when you show up late for cruise?
He also had a 30 page check-in PQS to complete.
