i get these all the time...especially since he and i are "just friends" through this deployment....ugh! i wish i could smack some of them sometimes! (i dont care if theyre my family and friends, i still want to smack em lol) only you guys could ever say that stuff to me cause you have been/are/or will be going through it...thats why i'm so glad i found you guys!

Ducky..Hey...I am a military wife of 24 years...The Navy...My husbands ship was on it's way two day's after 911..seeing as they were the largest aircraft carrier..they where seen as the largest approaching threat (kinda like first responders)...Second my husband served two tours of duty in Irac). On The Ground!

I would have punched that lady probally

So true..I would like to add one that was said to me.<br />
I was dumbfounded so I didn't have a response.<br />
<br />
I am jealous of your marriage this lady said. She then added I would love it if my husband was gone all the time and the money was still being deposited in my account! "You Have The Perfect Marriage".<br />
<br />
All I could do was stand there with my mouth open trying to understand what I had just heard her say! Did I missunderstand? No she repeated when I didn't respond! All I could do was turn and walk away!

hahaha the responses to 14, `5 and 16 make me laugh .thanks. i needed taht

People do say stupid things. Some are obviously worse than others! Sometimes people will say anything rather than nothing, when nothing would be better. I don't think they're purposely being malignant, but that doesn't make it okay.

iv been asked many of these questions and had those exact thoughts in my head! some times i just want to be like " are you dumb! did you really just ask me that, lets use some common sense here"<br />
But clearly no one else understands!

i come across these cute little things all the time and of course have to pass it on to my ladies :)

i love this!! thanks lady

omg i get asked like ALL of these questions all the time... its sooo annoying!!! but i love their anwsers! :)

I LOVE THIS!! soo great : )

i love this. ive heard some of these so many times from my friends and other people

ud be suprised some of the things that people will say.. they dont know how to use their brains before they speak

omg that pretty much sums it up for us then....<br />
oh and that one where you say "has he killed anyone" and we dont talk about that....dude who the heck wuld ask that idiots should know thats we are not aloud to speak of that dumb!!!

I found this and of course thought of you wonderful ladies :)
