I really wish these rumors would get squashed. They are the SAME rumors from when Sal first joined the Army, 22 years ago! Military spouses, PAY ATTENTION, LOL
*A mop standing outside a front door on post-IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE SPOUSE INSIDE THE HOME IS SIGNALING FOR AN AFFAIR. IT USUALLY MEANS THAT HE/SHE HAS RECENTLY MOPPED AND IS DRYING THE MOP, LOL
*The more kids you have the more money the Army pays you-IF THIS WERE TRUE, WE WOULD BE GAZZILIONAIRES AND ROLLING IN THE DOUGH.. THE ONLY TIME HAVING KIDS MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE IN THE MILITARY IS WHEN YOU RECEIVE COLA FOR LIVING OVERSEAS OR CERTAIN AREAS STATESIDE. COLA IS BY RANK, LOCATION AND NUMBER OF DEPENDANTS(UP TO DEPENDANTS)
*The Army will pay for spouses college-AGAIN, IF THIS WERE TRUE, WE WOULD ALL BE PHD'S. THERE ARE ORGANIZATIONS THAT OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS TO SPOUSES AND NOW SOLDIERS CAN TURN OVER THEIR GI BILL(WITH STIPULATIONS) TO THEIR SPOUSE OR CHILD(REN).
*Spouses of enlisted soldiers can't be friends with spouses of officers-REMINDER, SPOUSES ARENT IN THE ARMY AND PLAY BY DIFFERENT RULES. SPOUSES CAN BE FRIENDS WITH ANYONE THEY CHOOSE. I HAVE FRIENDS FROM SPOUSES OF E1'S TO SPOUSES OF 2 STARS. YOU DONT ONLY HAVE TO ASSOCIATE WITH ONE OR THE OTHER. SPOUSES DONT HAVE ANY RANK-PERIOD...
*Commissary baggers-YES YOU DO NEED TO TIP THEM, THEY DO ONLY WORK FOR TIPS AND YES THAT IS LEGAL.... IF YOU DONT WANT TO TIP THEM, THEN BAG YOUR GROCERIES YOURSELF AND CARRY THEM OUT YOURSELF. NO THEY DONT MAKE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS A DAY, EITHER.
*Female soldiers our out to get your soldier-UMM NO, NOT REALLY.
I think thats it for now, LOL these are the ones that I read about weekly and it drives me into insanity sometimes. The problem is, is that people choose to hear these and believe these and anytime someone tells them that isnt so, they get 57 kinds of butt hurt about it, LOL..
PS this pic has nothing to do with the topic, it just makes me laugh..
