ABCW: Musings of an IT wife

I am an IT wife.
Pic Courtesy: Meme Generator

Sometimes, I see a lot of similarities between my IT husband and a soldier in the military.

Soldier fights with foreigners, IT guy fights with foreigners

Soldiers family hardly get to see him, IT guys family hardly gets to see him

Soldier has to be on his post even in the dead of the night, IT guy has to be on the call even at the dead of the night

Soldiers gets trained regularly, IT gets trained regularly

Soldiers get posted "off site" at times, IT gets posted "off site" at times

Soldiers have "Short term" and a 'long term assignment", so do IT guys

Soldier wives are well-versed with some military terms like Line of Fire, Border Control, names of weapons, IT wives are well versed in IT terms onsite call, customer call, escalation, delivery team etc

Soldiers fight a war, IT guys fight in the war room

Soldiers face storm, IT guys face brain storm

Soldiers gets to talk to his family in between posts, IT guy gets to talk to his family in-between calls

Soldiers run a marathon once in six months, IT guys do a Hackathon once in 6 months

But, in the end of the day. the wife of both soldier and the IT guy, love their men enough to wait for them through anything and everything

P.S: This is a fun post, not meant to hurt any sentiments. If you find it offensive, my apologies in advance
