I got a kick out one of my friends on Facebook, today. She was complaining about how she hates her husband job because they are slow at doing things. Then she ended her comment with "I can't wait until he enlists in the Army!" All I could do is laugh. One thing you will learn in the Army is patience. The Army motto is "Hurry up and wait." Nothing is done when you want it. If you are reading this and a Army wife, you know what I mean. I told her, "don't think it gets any better in the Army." She said, "he will get more than 12 hours per week, right?" Oh hunny, the Army is going to get their money worth. While my husband is deployed, he works 10am to 12am the next day every day.Well sometimes he will get off about 10pm or so...sometimes. He will not get a day off until he gets back home.
No real point to this post but I got a kick out that. I know that some of my readers are military affiliated and would get a kick out of that, too.
