No Husband?

Today I stopped off in the Exchange, and spent some time looking at two racks full of "Navy Pride" shirts. Actually, I looked at more racks than that, but I was particularly searching through the family shirts...you know, the "Navy Wife" shirts, and Mom, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Sister, Brother, Grandma, Grandpa, and Girlfriend. See what's missing?

Yeah. So I ask the lady at Customer Service, "Do you ever carry "Husband" shirts? So she passes me to another woman who's busy stocking that section, who says, "no, we don't have them," and another woman points out that they have Dad hats but no Husband ones. I'm sent back to Customer Service to speak with a different woman, who calls someone on the phone, who walks into the area while he's speaking with her. Once again I explain what I am looking for, and he seems quite startled that he even has "Girlfriend" shirts. "What about Boyfriend?" he asks, and I tell him no. So he has someone call one of the other exchanges to verify that they don't carry any either.

And my only question is "Why?" because there are more and more of me in the Navy.

So they took my number and name, and we'll see what happens.

It cost nearly $40 to fill up the truck today. Guess there's not going to be much book-buying until the damned gas prices drop.
