When his superior officer reprimanded him, he responded "YOLO."


An unidentified member of the U.S. Space Force was desperate to get his hands on a Sony PlayStation 5. In fact, he was 30 minutes late for a fitness lesson because he was scoping at deals at nearby Target stores to snag one, Task & Purpose reports.

The airman showed no sign of regret for his actions. His response when he was reprimanded by his superior officer: "YOLO [You only live once], PS5 > letters of discipline."

That's a spanking.


An official letter is excoriating.

"You were late to work and insinuated to your supervisor that buying a PlayStation was more important to you than the disciplinary consequences of your actions," read the letter of reprimand, which was later shared on Facebook. "Your actions are an extreme deviation from the professionalism expected of you as a member of the armed forces."

It gets even better. The Space Force member ended up being busted down a rank, from Senior Airman to Airman 1st Class, according to Task & Purpose.

It's still unclear whether he was able to get his PlayStation 5.

Coincidentally, the news comes just a day after Space Force trounced other branches of the military in a Call of Duty tournament.
