Where to start! I also live in El Paso, and I frequent the IHOP alot! I can not believe that you are complaining about police and border patrol not deserving a discount because they "drive up and down a fence!"
Do you not read the news?? How many times do border patrol folks get shot at? Didn't a couple of them get thrown in jail the other day, for shooting at a KNOWN drug dealer?? c'mon now! they do dangerous work every day!!
I really doesn't matter!
I have my son in Iraq (for his SECOND tour) and I have my daughter in Afganistan!! I would never.. ever try to dispute the discount I am allowed because my husband is retired (he was in Saudi)! Do I think my daughter and my son are more important than your husband! Darn tootin' I do!! Do I compare his job to my kids' job? When my son does convoys at least once a week? Would I dare to ask for a bigger discount than you receive because I have TWO kids out there?? HECK NO!!!
Take what they give you.. because YOUR husband is over there.. not you! YOUR HUSBAND.. and be grateful that this is not the VietNam era, all over again..where your husband would be treated like dirt..as my FATHER was when he returned from VietNam!!
ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. I am ashamed of you!
