Normally I’m not a reader of those advice columns in newspapers, but this one caught my eye on the basis of the title alone.
My husband is refusing to re-enlist in the Army in March. I think he has lost his mind. He claims that he is tired of all the deployments.
I’m not buying it. I told him he should man up and stop acting like a scared little boy.
Incredibly, it goes on like that for quite awhile, including suggesting that they could “maybe even take a vacation” with the re-enlistment bonus. Perhaps the real kicker was this:
I’ve learned to cope with deployments, and he has, too. There’s nothing to it.
The “advice” for what has to be one of the worst requests for advice ever is priceless too… she recommends that the wife join up and let the husband be the military spouse for awhile.
