Military Laundry

You know that you are a Military Wife when you can tell what kind of day your solider/sailor had by what type of uniform they bring home to wash, or what you find in the bottom of the washer or dryer. 

It seems with me, I am always finding ear plugs. In the washer, in the dryer, in the floor, in the car, everywhere. 

You talk to a SeaBee wife and she will complain about nails being everywhere. 

You also have a sudden sense that you are a military wife when you realize that you are in an argument with someone over how bad hydraulic fluid / oil / grease / tar stinks and how bad it is to get out of a uniform. 

Whatever it is that he brings home on his uniform is always stinky and always difficult to get out. 

Even though it seems silly, I have seen wives argue over what stinks more and what is harder to get out. 

I guess it is the Navy wife version of a pissing contest. (I am sure one of the women could figure out how to get piss out of a uniform too)
