    Matt's already accepted that I'm going to kill him one day. I just tell him that how he behaves determines if it's fast or slow and the method :emoji_grin:

    Matt just assumes I'll snap and poison him one day.

    I mean, that's what he gets for not cooking any of his own food.

    That is some really shit pay. I make $17k a year working 20hrs/week and I just have to put up with A-holes yelling at me and not call them the c word. $1600/mo is only $19,200 a year and they get yelled at and deal with all the physical and other stuff. That really sucks :(

    honestly its not if you work the system. By work the systems I mean don't blow your pay in every port. Get your shit together so you can gtfo the barracks and start collecting that sweet housing pay, COLA if you're overseas, go to school so they pay for that and you collect your GI bill when you get out, document all your shit (my knee, etc), and don't fuck up so you end up with an honorable.

    to expand on this, the military pays for your housing, your food, and all your medical stuff.

    That puts it into better perspective. Thanks for the info. I knew all that in the back of my mind but it just didn't click when seeing those numbers in the chart.

    Yeah, I don't know what the gf's parents would do if they didn't have the VA. Also, her and all her siblings got free college because their dad is a disabled vet (I think that might be an Indiana specific thing).

    Well, it's pretty much what it sounds like.
    There is a ditch that ran behind my buddy's house. parts of it are paved over, so they are good spots to skate. We were walking to one of our spots and we see some bloody paper towels. My friend moves it with his shoe and then something falls out. At first it looked like a finger or a thumb. Oh look pins...

    Anyways it wasn't a finger. So, my buddy runs to his house and calls the cops. I remember the other guy we were with freaking out. He couldn't even talk to the cops. Turns out some lady found out her husband cheated on her with her best friend, so she spiked his drinks and gave him the chop when he pasted out. Then she just threw it out the window on her way back to Mexico. I don't know if they ever arrested her, but I do remember our parents making us go to counseling. It didn't help. You'll never get that out of your head no matter how many bullshit trust exercises you do or how many journals you write. The guy never got it back either, since it happened two days before we found it and they had no clue where she tossed it.

    I mean for anyone who doesn't have the means to go to college after highschool, I often recommend if they are physically and mentally capable, to join the military.

    Some people seem to have the misconception that if you join you're going to see combat, and that's simply not true. You can definitely see it if you really want to, but by joining the right "rate" you'll avoid combat areas completely. And we're not really known for our face to face combat (navy anyways)

    So if you go in with a little bit of knowledge/research you'll get the rate (job) you want, and if you like it great, you have a career. If not you got a great life experience, hopefully some college already done while you're in, and a ticket to the rest.

    Companies/People loooooove hiring veterans with Honorable's.

    Though for anyone, or anyone's family considering joining I recommend contacting someone who is in, or has been in for the real deal, not the recruiter lol. Recruiters will lie to you.
