I am glad you are able to accompany him to nice places like Europe and only hope that your expenses are on your dime and not mine.
And what is so funny/happy about all your purchase overages being paid for by the taxpayers?
Of course this is all IMO.
Wow, just wow.
I was speechless for a minute.
My husband is a Captain in the Navy with 27 years under his belt. What military people have to deal with is probably more than you will ever have to deal with in your life. The moving, the rules, regulations, at times it seems like they own you , etc. Oh, and having to go to war or the possibility of it. Don't forget that they defend the country you are living in and your right to freedom! I could go on and on, but I will quit. Your comment was so totally wrong and tasteless.
I have traveled all over the world with hubby, They took care of his flight (work related) and I paid for mine. They paid for his hotel and I stayed with him at no additional cost.
If she was able to get in a few extra pounds, I wouldn't care if it was on my dime. Most military people are not paid enough for what they do in my opinion.
Ok, I am stopping now. I might say something that I would NOT regret later, but might upset some others.
TrueBlue, thanks for your hubby's service and for everything you had to deal with being married to the military.
On a side note, does anyone know of any good cake stores going from London up to Glasgow? I will be making this trip later in the year. I will probably be there for a month or so.
Oh, and minicuppie, don't worry, it won't be on your dime. Hubby is also a pilot for American Airlines.
