Pity PartyGah... Excuse my rant, but I have to get stuff off my chest.
If there is one thing I hate, it's that when I tell people that my boyfriend is in the army the automatically get a look on their face like they feel sorry for me. I really don't want your pity party. My boyfriend is a soldier and he's a badass. Now tell me to tell him thank you for his service and move on with your lives. That is all. :)
