An army specialist who was denied leave to attend a baby shower changed his reasons to make it more ‘manly’.
Sharing his form on imgur, the soon-to-be dad had written ‘Baby Shower’ in the remarks section, obviously giving reason for his need for a few days off.
However, his request was not granted and, what’s even more shocking is, his Chief Officer wrote on the paper: “Men don’t go to baby showers”.
The army specialist decided to try his luck again, this time asking for leave to do something a little more ‘manly’.
So this time, in the remarks section, he wrote: “Going home to the Appalachian mountains to drink whiskey, wrestle bears, and shoot lots of guns."
"I also plan to grow out a beard, chop down a hundred trees with my axe and eat 10lbs of thick cut bacon with my wife, whom I plan to have lots of unprotected sex with, because I am a man and that's just what we do. Football."
It’s 2016; you’d think this stereotypical notion of what men and women should do would be well extinct by now.
