"I would kill to get a killionaire... 10 times... digitally."

Hey Flood, I come here to you with a problem. I always read threads concerning girl problems here on B.net, but never thought that I would be the subject of one myself. Anyways, here's my story, hope you guys and gals can help me out.

So when I was younger, I joined the military and spent a good portion of my life doing my best and gaining some recognition within the system. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty successful. I managed to attain a fairly high rank, gained a lot of good life experience, and became somewhat well known. Life was pretty good. I had made some friends, but I had also made some enemies. Luckily, my rank within the military helped to shield me from their meddling. All this changed one day when I was partnered with this woman for a long term project.

She was smart and very dedicated to the work we did. (I can't tell you exactly what we worked on, as a good portion is still classified.) It was all working out very well. We recieved many commendations on the work we did, and we even made it onto the news one time. The problem is that she started getting older. (She's no spring chicken.) She's started to get very emotional and even had outbursts at the office. She even did this in front of my commanding officer, which mortified me. However, she is a very good friend of mine, so I promised to accompany her to the doctors. Well about two weeks ago, her tests came back and the doctor confirmed she's going throught Menopause.

Obviously she has been very upset by this news. This isn't the worst part though. While I feel for her, we both are not anywhere near the end of our military careers, but the Menopause is starting to affect all aspects of my life. Quite possibly the worst part of this whole god forsaken series of events is that she is starting to come on to me. I don't know if she really feels this way, or if she's just desperate because she just realized she is getting old. Either way, I'm not into her, but I still value our friendship. We've known each other for years, and I don't want to lose such a close friend. We've been by each other's side for years now, and even then she is still necessary to the work that we do in the military.

High Command has even gotten involved and threatened to "Retire her" if she is unable to get this thing under control. It's also putting my status in the military at risk. It has practically turned into a full blown tabloid style scandal. Please Flood, how can I help Cortana get through this without destroying my career?

John

Ps. Just so this has some discussion value, have you had any similar experiences at work with long time friends?


tl;dr Your the flood. You of all people should be interested in others plights.

Sex is a sensation caused by temptation, a guy sticks his location into a girl's destination to increase population for the next generation. Do you get my explanation, or do you need a demonstration?

If you're a zombie and you know it, bite your friends.

The Flood Theory of Deterioration: q(p)=(qi)e^(-p/r)

Where q(p) is the quality of the thread as a function of p posts, (qi) is the inital quality of the first post, p is the amount of posts and r is the e-peen of the original poster.

I actually saw the ending coming. But apparently most people didn't. So well done OP.

I probably should of, but my expectations of the flood doing something decently clever have dropped so low I was blindsided.

The fight has been complete.... now get the cookies!

While we certainly share your enthusiasm for the return, we here at the Bungie.net community are mostly made up of snarky asses and jerks who will ridicule you for making a thread about something revealed months ago. We regret that your innocent intentions will almost certainly be replied with anger and sarcasm, and politely invite you to don your Flame-suit, because you just did the internet equivalent of jumping up the Construct lifts.

Haha it didn't seem real near the beginning but I got into it then the end hit. Good one.

OP, while I respect that your just joking around, the Flood doesn't need this stupidity. Your only exacerbating the problem. Hopefully this will be locked. This thread is bad and you should feel bad.
