After Returning from OP TELIC last week, I like most of the guys who are back have gone on some much needed leave. Last night, in one of the many pubs in my home town, me and a few civvie mates are enjoyng a quiet pint (as yer do), last orders are called and in walks "miss x" and her other half (a complete dope head) and they come to sit with us. I've known miss x for a few years and we've never really got along. she knew i was in the gulf and just starts having a go at me and all of us that were there, saying things like we deliberetly killed civvies and enjoyed it and how we were guilty of every war crime going (yes she's a Uni student). the lads i was drinking with didn't know where to look or what to say. I was and still am fuming. I'd been pretty quiet about being on OP TELIC, my mates knew i was there and surprisingly for them when they first saw me back said nothing but "welcome home, mate" and bought me a beer. miss x just spent the thankfuly short time slagging us all off. but the thing that really gripped my sh*t last night was when she had a go at the lads who lost their lives, saying how happy she was when the news came through about the deaths. How I never chinned the bitch I'll never know. and what did i do? I walked away like an idiot. hopefuly next time i see her i won't be as restrained. I've never been so wound up in my life, and i feel ashamed that i didn't chin miss x. We live and leardn. A friend of mine owns a gym and has given me a free run of the place while i'm back, i'll go take my anger out on the weights. probably all i'm good for.
