the patriotic nerve

2 days back i applied for the airforce.. since i'll be graduating from the so called engineering n i jus informed ma dad way back tht i'll be applying.. today wen he had called i told him tht i applied for the short service commission.. he enquired abt it.. so on goes the following discussion:

 patriotic me: the short service is jus for 6 years i think..
worrying dad: 6 years(with a sigh)..tht long.. wat abt the pay they r givin..
pm: u r workin 4 the country.. u dont expect a fancy salary.. but i think it shd be sufficient.. n plus hw am i supposed to know nw itself..
wd: but you'll be 28 by then.. wat abt marriage and settling in life..
pm: cmon dad.. dont talk abt tht nw itself.. n u r supposed to be selfless wen u r doin a job like tht..
wd: atleast u'll get pension n the respect..
pm: sigh..

P.S: u shd be noting the point tht i have only applied n not even hav been selected in the first written round..
JUMP P.S

P.P.S: if u ever come after the infinite loop.. then there r 2 things tht hav irritated me over the past few days..
1. wiki links on blog posts..
2. word verification on the comments..
