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?!

How is that? I said I've never experienced it, but I'm acknowledging that in any higher up position some people let the title go to their head. Have you never had a job where your boss was a jackass on a power trip simply just because they're boss? It happens.
Again, I've never experienced it, and I'm more than halfway through PLC to be an Officer, so I've been around a lot of upcoming ones. You act like I'm singling out one person. There's no need for your rude comment.

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

Quoting dearestrachy:

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





Quoting Anonymous:

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

You obviously have not been in here very long if you think she's just a spouse...  Even if she was - your attitude sucks.

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

You already singled out a whole group of people.  I'm not the rude one here....

If that's the case then I'm insulting myself as well, as an Officer. Holy shit you're so dramatic.

When my mom was in and we lived on a base, she had some guy from her command come up to her and say "Did you know your daughter was seen hanging out with a girl with blue hair?!"

This, when my hair was hot pink the previous week and I was just between colors until I decided on the next...

Yeah, my mom was like:

"...And?"

You are an officer candidate... Not quite an officer yet. Secondly... You are still agreeing with a negative assumption about officer spouses. Yea that is calling singling out and lumping together. JS
