"If they're not going to pay the military, to turn their back on the guys defending this country, then they're going have trouble" recruiting, a sergeant's wife fumed. "I'll personally tell the C.O. that he can…."
Her rant was cut short when her husband told her to "be quiet. Right now."
Heh. I bet the Times cleaned that one up a little for publication!
The original comment was probably something like:
"Jesus fucking Christ woman! Shut the fuck up right fucking now! You bitch about my E-5 pay all the goddam time, ya wanna see how much I get without these three measly stripes?!"
My sides hurt...
