Ok, I know you all have probably seen these sayings floating around out there but I couldn’t resist! Most civilians aren’t aware of these little quirks. When I sit back and think about it, the differences between military and civilian spouses are crazy! Hope you all enjoy!
You know you’re an Army wife when….
You write everything in pencil because things change from minute to minute!
You DO NOT, under any circumstances, go to the PX or commissary between the hours of 1130-1300!
You show your ID to the cashier at Walmart
Your kid says “hoo ah” and “roger that” instead of “ok”
Your civilian friends and family look at you crazy because they have no idea what PCS, TDY, DFAS, FRG, ACU, and ETS mean…they need a translator!
You don’t have to stop and think about what time 2130 is
You’ve been referred to as “Household 6”
You get aggravated when civilian friends and family complain because their spouse had to go out of town for a week!
You’ve learned to sleep through the sounds of planes, helicopters and artillery simulators
You know your husband’s SSN better than your phone #
You know what it’s like to sleep with the house phone, cell phone and laptop!
You are proud of and defend this lifestyle no matter how bad it gets because you know there’s no other life for you!
