So my wife wants a divorce over Paintball.

So heres the story.

As some of you know, I am a paramedic for a small hospital in Wisconsin. I work various shifts during the week, and then every other weekend I work the night shift (7pm - 7am). Because my house is so chaotic, I can't sleep there during the day so I stay at the hospital in a call room.

Well today I couldn't sleep - it was about noon or so, so I grab my gearbag and head out to my local field and play a few games and generally enjoy myself for a few hours. Then I go back to the Hospital to clean up and grab a nap before work. Then I get "the" message on my cell phone...

Basically I am acused of never being home cause I work, and then when I am not at work I am out paintballing, etc..... so its now down to "make your choice - me or paintball."

I am going to miss her.....

:D

She's not serious... My wife and I are very tight. This is just her way of getting her point accross.

She isn't really mad per se; She is just feeling a little under-appreciated as of late. She vents at me to let me know what she is thinking, I reply with a silly joke wich is my way of saying ok I hear you, and we go on with life. Its a strange communication regime we have, but actually the system works pretty well.

She can get a little stressed as she is a stay at home mom, takes care of three kids, the house, groceris, laundry etc. and on top of that does all the soccer mom, PTA, girl/boy scout type stuff.

All I have to do is take care of sick and bleeding people on the brink of death.

My job is WAY easier! LOL....

Dude, I think most of us here know what choice to make if it came down to it. When you get to heaven God doesnt ask how why your wife left you, he ask how many kills you got.

Thats considering you get to heaven ;) Maybe you'll just bypass God and go straight to Satan :devil: In that case, yes kills would definitaly matter ;)

So, if all you ever do is work and paintball, how are you on this forum?

Methinks you should spend some quality time with the family, rather than complain about them online:p


Heh, you know I kid. But you know what I mean.

if she was serious, i can see where she would be coming from. don't get me wrong... i love paintball & all. but never gettin to see your dude would not be fun at all. my boyfriend was lookin into being a paramedic.. but i told him that i really dont want that because i want someone that's going to be there at night and whatnot.. not have a ****ed up schedule. i can really see what she is probably going through not seeing you. because i know that if my boyfriend ends up becoming a paramedic, as much as i would be glad that he is doing something that he wants to do... i would be upset about not getting to see him as often. just try to spend more time with the family. she's probably pulling her hair out taking care of the kids and doing all that jazz.
