I'm an Army wife, but I've never heard this before and it had me a little confused.
On the back of a car, driven by a very middle-aged woman, was a huge magnet (bigger than an 8x10 photo), and it said "My Army Bitch..toughest job in the Army."
Any guesses as to what that's supposed to mean? Every stoplight we had to stop at, I noticed people look at it and the majority of them looked like they couldn't figure it out either.
Personally, I would never put the words "bitch" and "Army" on the same magnet and then continue to drive around an Army installation. Hell I wouldn't even have "bitch" anywhere on my car but that's just me.

****It just irritates me. As military wives, we are expected to act and present ourselves in a certain, I guess "dignified" manner, because in turn we represent our husbands--the ones in uniform. I wouldn't want to have stuff like that on my vehicle knowing I'm supposed to be supporting my husband and our military. I take being an Army wife seriously. I don't dress like a slut, I don't get in fights, I don't get sloppy drunk in public, hell I don't even go out to bars or clubs (really its just not my thing anyways). I'd rather not do anything that might be frowned upon.

Maybe, but I still don't get it. I mean, if my husband called me a bitch, I'd knock him flat on his ass. Joking or not, he knows better.

***Plus, in the military life, spouses are expected to act and present themselves a certain way, because in turn we represent our husbands--the one in uniform.
