I am getting REALLY tired of people hearing what they think I'm saying, rather than the words that are actually coming out of my mouth. REALLY tired.

i feel: angry angry

Communication is sometimes the onus of the listener... if you chose to only hear what you want or already have formed suppositions in your mind then what ends up happening is what you are going thru. It's not you.. unfortunately its a fairly common problem.

eeew! flashbacks! make them stop!

Are you still downrange, as we used to call it, and are you saying things to males that outrank you?

If yes, can you get to some potable alcohol? If no, do you know any really maudlin, old-timey Catholic hymns to the Blessed Mother? Because the only response to that response is to go AWOL from the neck up. Smile beatifically and drift away singing "Tis the Month of Our Mother"...

Yes, and no. Let's just say that help desk techs are as obtuse in a combat zone as they are stateside. And finding booze doesn't bear thinking about -- I like not having an Article 15's on my record.
