Unintentional Spat.

So, from the great stupidity that prompted the “HOW DARE YOU” post a few back, we have also ran across another one from our dear friend Ashley. Although this happened a few days ago, it started a whirlwind of debate and of course a lot of problems, again.

There is one thing that “Most” mil spouses know not to say, and that is that they are military.
we will start from the beginning, Military spouses are NOT affiliated with the military in any way except that their spouses are “in the military”.  This idiot thinks she has any and all rights to claim to be a “military person”.

Now here is what went down, and i had to dig through numerous messages to find this since the chick blocked me.

She was sitting at the LA airport, waiting 4 hours for her husband (who is in A-school) to come pick her up. She figured out about the USO, which is a little area that military  members and their families can go to relax between flights or while waiting for someone to pick them up, usually on PCS or deployments, they can be found at most big airports.  she “checked in” at the USO with the update of  ” Ahhhhhh I love being a military person!”

Now I may be a bit mean sometimes, and I may be a bit over the top, but seriously no spouse deserves the right to say that they are “military” unless they are active duty, reserves, or a retired/veteran.  So I responded with :

“ok, I have to put this out there, since your still a newbie and stuff. You cannot claim you are a “military person”. You, yourself, along with me, and Rena and any other spouse that did not serve, are not military people. we are citizens. We do not wear combat boots, we do not go to war, we do not go to boot camp, and we do not live in sub par conditions to defend our country. Our spouses do. The only people that are permitted to say they are military people are those who are enlisted, or are veterans/retired. This is just one thing that irks the hell out of me, and many other spouses. I admit the USO is a great thing for families of service members, and it helps a lot of families out, especially those PCS’ing, we’ve used the LAX one when we were heading out here, but saying something to the extent of being in the military when you are not is going to get you into a lot of trouble. Just and FYI. Not being mean, just stating the facts.”

Now, prior to posting this on her status update, I proceeded to pass what she said to a few spouses, veterans and active duty members. Each and every one of them was offended and just upset about what she said. Taking credit for something that she had no right to take credit for (mind you this was building up before I posted this… We’ll get into it in a minute), along with just not understanding that a statement such as that could honestly be heard by the wrong person, and she could end up in a fight, or getting her ass chewed by a higher up. She is outcasting herself, and my “comment” was just to clarify that what she did was unacceptable, and she needed to switch it up or she was going to get in trouble.

Shortly after that was posted, I got deleted and blocked, along with 2 of my friends who also were mil wives trying to help her out, who had nothing at all to do with that post.  Wow. this girl. *sigh*

Lets get this point across. This girl is the wayyyy overly ZOMG MIL BLAH WOOOOOOOOOO! she also has posted things that were wrong, such as something about “shooting little towel heads”, someone has called her out on, she tries to post stuff to show how much better the Air Force is to any other branch, which is later disproved since her information is outdated. THEN to top it, she was the one bashing other branches. This girl is in for a whirlwind of hurt, and trouble, and I can see her hurting her husband’s career. I give it a year before she screws up to the point where her husband gets one of those “Muzzle your bitch” talks, as my friend would say.  Oh well. She lost 3 people who could have helped her get far. Now she can learn on her own.

Still don’t know what that Dino was Thinkin’….

I need an outlet. A way to express myself to people I don’t know, or those who may care, or then again don’t. This will be my first “blog” I suppose. Starting it while my husband is away at training as a way to escape my screaming child of doom. I need a BREAK. I need an escape. Lets see how this goes. I want to write about my day, what I learn, I want to vent, write poetry, short stories, and information that I write for a friends blog (that I personally think is rather good). I’m going to school and am switching my degree to a History or Art History major… Oh how I love the history of things. I love to research history, learn about what “really” happened… the mystery that decades or centuries later was never solved. Maybe I should be a detective, I can totally rock a pipe… or maybe just a super hero… although I doubt I’d look good in spandex, but that cape is so tempting….
