Military friends vs. other friends

A friend on my boat sent this to me (edited a bit to remove the egregious vulgarities):


Military friends vs other friends


OTHER FRIENDS: Never ask for food

MILITARY FRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.



OTHER FRIENDS: Call your parents "Mr. and Mrs."

MILITARY FRIENDS: Call your parents drunk as hell and

tell them about the fat girl you tried to pick up



OTHER FRIENDS: Bail you out of jail and tell you what

you did was wrong.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Would be sitting next to you saying,

"Damn...we f***ed up...but that was fun...but

I'm not calling the CO this time!!!!"



OTHER FRIENDS: Cry with you.

MILITARY FRIENDS: laugh at you and tell you to "man up, Nancy boy!"


OTHER FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then

give it back.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Keep your stuff untill they PCS.



OTHER FRIENDS: know a few things about you.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct

quotes from you.



OTHER FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what

the crowd is doing.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowd's ass that

left you.



OTHER FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, "I'm home!"





OTHER FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they

think you've had enough.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over

the place and say, "You better drink the rest

of that, you know we don't waste...that's alcohol

abuse!!!"



OTHER FRIENDS: Will say "I can't handle Tequila

anymore".

MILITARY FRIENDS: Will say "okay just one more" 2

minutes later "okay just one more".



OTHER FRIENDS: Will talk s*it to the person who talks

s*it about you.

MILITARY FRIENDS: Will knock them on their ass!!



OTHER FRIENDS: Will support you when you try to quit

smoking

MILITARY FRIENDS: Will blow smoke in your face and
offer you cigarettes until you cave, then call you a wuss for relapsing.

Now come on, don't tell me this doesn't sound familiar (like "typical boat life")...

My Mom still talks about some of those phone calls.
