    Have You Seen How Army Dads Send SMSes? This Will Leave You In Splits

    Attention all Army Brats!

    This is something you will relate to.

    How many times have you whatsapped your dad and felt how army the reply was?

    Everybody loves their dads but army dads are extra special. They are not just firm and strong but the faujipan shows in everything they do be it folding laundry or typing a text.

    Like normal people Army dads don’t believe in the idea of using short forms or informal writing. What they write has to be complete with proper English and punctuation. So:

    GTG becomes I will be taking your leave.

    TTYL becomes we will catch up another time.

    And TC becomes Let your health be in pink.

    I collected a few sample of the most bizarre things army dads say

    1. When they go shopping.

    2. When you go shopping.

    3. When you get the speech.

    4. When the times are different.

    5. When praise is confused with sarcasm.

    6. When terms are new.

    7. When text language is just not enough.

    So texting them is a disaster because it makes us question our education. But still maybe that’s how the fighters have to be always brave and formal. After all being in Army is all about the confidence and the attitude.

    So cheers to our Army dads

    But still would prefer to call them for a conversation.

      Oh! Army brats are a breed apart. Like their Dads, respectfully irreverent.

      Is it just me who’s bothered by incorrect spelling of “Received” in pic 2? An army dad would never make that rookie mistake!

      You and your friend just sent these texts to each other, didn’t you? The time, battery % and rest of the things are all the same :P
      Some Army dads actually talk normally, you know? Just saying.

      I’m a fourth generation army guy and I can tell you with confidence that that kind of stuck up army dads were not more than 0.1 % of the total and have all retired about 10 years ago. Today’s army dads are adventures and fun with their families.
