    Thanks, yeah its harder on my wife...her daughter. step-daughter is really smart in some ways but as far as common sense she lacks, wife told her if you arent going to school you better start working full time...

    I have a LEO buddy that dropped out of HS early and got his GED. but he's got better motivation. And makes better life decisions ;)

    Sounds like you are on the right path. Make her earn everything she gets from you, including the roof over head. Also make sure you and your wife are on the same page. Things like this can easily drive a wedge between the 2 of you.

    I got lucky in that regard and my step son pushed us to remove him from the house. He made the decision for my wife and I very easy.

    well eventually its going to go that way...its only a matter of time. She had a slight reality check a while back when she threatened to move out and was only gone 2 days and we didnt stop her:thumbsup::rofl:she claimed to go to a friends house but I know they probably said you cant stay here or she never really went there and she got tired of sleeping in her car.;)

    Yep, there's the door, don't let it hit you in the ass on the way out. I just hope your's decides to get her head out of her ass. Mine keeps shoving his head farther up his ass and wonders why the view doesn't change.

    Yeah I think he was just asking for someone to chat with to up his post count. At least that’s what I got out of it.

    So when I said my daughter comes home and reads The Holy Road (sequel to Dances With Wolves) this is what I mean. She's almost finished. I never knew she was so interested in Native American culture but this has truly given her a passion.

    @RearViewMirror what was the headset that you use for your PS4? My xbox one went out the other night and I need a new one asap. Undecided right now if I want to go wireless or not.

    These are the ones I have. They make them for the Xbox 1 IIRC also. The ones I have are corded since I sit about 3-4' away from my monitor so cordless wasn't a necessity for me. They make the A50's (I think that is what they are called) and they are the same but cordless. I promise... if you do buy them you will never ever go back to another headset again. They are the best sounding headsets I've ever used. They aren't cheap but they are damn well worth it.

    I read it as if service would excuse him from the same regulations all others endure. As a vet who lives in an area with allot of other vets I cringe when I hear similar sounding comments drug out as a pass through life.

    Point taken, I reckon as a vet Im a bit sensitive to this as when abuses are reported or witnessed there is concern that in the eyes of the rest of the population we are all like that.

    He posted. FS thread for his 2014 FJC with the less than prerequisite posts and the post was removed and he was advised of the standard. He then chimed in with the help a Vet thread looking for a pass for his service.
