My (pacifist) roommate got a text message today…from the Navy. We know it was the Navy because the email address it came from ended with @navy.mil. The text of the message:
I know its [sic] hard for you to talk but I haven’t even gotten a text. r u home today?
There are several options here, the first and hopefully most likely of which is that someone in the Navy has the wrong number. Of course, then one might wonder why they would be texting personal messages from their Navy email, using our tax dollars to repair a private relationship. On the other hand, it’s also possible that this is a new recruitment tactic, in which case I must admit that I am impressed with the sneakiness, even for the government — bad grammar and everything.Published in
