Marine Corps Ball, and stuck up wives

Posted by   + Show Post
We went to the Ball yesterday, and at our table was a Ssgt and his wife. They didn't acknowledge anyone besides another Ssgt and Gunny. They completely ignored the Sgt's (and their wives) at the table. My husband is a Sgt so he was ignored by them. They didn't even say hi, or make eye contact, never relied to anything, nothing. Like they didn't want to associate with anyone lower ranked. Ugh! I've heard of some people acting this way, but I unfortunately got to actually experience such behavior. Oooh I wish I could have told them how I felt! Anyone else ever come across couples like this?!

there are stuck up people everywhere. Did you extend pleasantries and try to get the conversation going ?

 Oh yeah...right to their heads because they have no accomplishments of their own.  Plz note, this is sarcasm. 

If someone doesn't respond to you, move on.  There are times when other people say things that I don't understand or relate to... and so I maybe give a smile or a siimple pleasantry.  It's got nothing to do with rank or the person and more to do with the conversation.  If we don't have a lot in common, I'm not going to have a whole lot to talk about with you.  It's not being "stuck up" it's just that we don't have a lot in common.  Life is going to be full of people that you don't relate to and you just learn to move on.

I can see that happening. Never experienced it, but I can see how the title would go to their heads.

Yes. Happens all the time. Especially with the officers wives!

Really?  I'm thinking your preconceived notions are what's stuck up...

I think you are just hanging around the wrong types of people.

I hear and see it. I don't have time to hang with anyone. I am a single parent in the military!

I've been to events where I didn't talk much to other people or other spouses... I am not super interested in making new friends most times... I probably would have only talked to people my husband knows. Call me rude and stuck up... Who cares... The night is about enjoying time with your marine and that is all.

If you see it hear it experience it... Then you are around it. Remove yourself if it bothers you. Just a thought.

I am not about to argue with a military spouse. Whatever you think... ok.

LMAO... At "argue with a military spouse." I am so much more than that one role I play in my life. So many assumptions... Take my free advice that you need to learn to walk away sometimes. Carry on lady.
