ITT:Military pet peeves about civilians
>Asking me about the army when my branch tape says "US Air Force" "US Navy" or "US Marines"
>Not knowing the difference between officer and enlisted. "Oh, my nephew joined out of high school! Why did you go to college first?"
>How many people have you killed?
>"Was 9/11 and inside job?"
>"Is Obama really going to take all of our guns away?"
>"Dude, I totally thought of joining once!" Right, so that makes us best buds.
>Do they brainwash you?
>Asking me if I know their family member/friend who is stationed on the other side of the country in a different branch of the armed forces.
>Talking about how if THEY joined the military, they would TOTALLY become a SpecOps/SEAL/Recon/Special forces ninja
>Trying to one-up me with stories of their friend/relative who is apparently way more badass than me
>lol Chair Force/Gayvy
Sorry you decided to join an organization designed to brainwash brain dead imbeciles into thinking they're important.
Well don't bitch when I call a Marine a soldier because TRIGGER WARNING IM A MUHREEN NOT A SOLDIER!!!
Never had any intentions of going to a place where the possibility of dying is pretty high.
>Sorry you decided to join an organization designed to brainwash brain dead imbeciles into thinking they're important.
but... but... im fighting for america and when i get back there's gonna be parades in the street celebrating my bravery at firing missiles at a raghead 200 miles away
>uses correct term
>not real military!
>literally too afraid of being a man and providing for his family
Wow queer, guess you wouldn't work in a mine, construction, oil, or lumber either? I'm glad we had men better than you build society because youre right fucked in the head.
>admits being rejected by MEPS
That explains your inferiority complex.
Some people join because there's cool shit to do.
CCT for example.
Get to go to cool schools and get cool training
HALO MFF school
Shoot cool guns and blow shit up
Watch cool planes shoot shit
Meeting the most interesting people around.
A lot of jobs in the military are Bullshit or boring.
But there's a few made for the right people that can be one hell of an experience
>>literally too afraid of being a man and providing for his family
Being in a desert killing people for the government is much of "providing for my family"
>implying i dont work in one of those 4 occupations
>he got rejected at MEPS
kek how much of a fuck up are you
Peace time military with tons of non-combat support roles. Your infinitely more likely to be killed in one of those professions than behind a god damn desk or in a maintenance bay like a shit ton of people in the miltiary.
No it doesn't.
I'm not in any part of the armed forces, or ever had the intention of joining. Civilian is not at all a degrading term, unless you make it sound degrading or find it degrading yourself cos you're a pussy.
It's like atheist and theist, neither are degrading terms. Unless you're one of the autistic fags who say "OHH ATHIEST SHOULDN'T BE A WORK CO'S THERE'S NO WORD FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T PLAY BASEBALL!"
>"if you're a soldier why are you such an assblasted manchild that no one in the real world cares you're a O1 butterball"
don't you have coffee to fetch "soldier"?
>muh tax dollars
Your tax dollars do tons of shit other than 'pay for someone's experience'.
Your tax dollars paying for your massive bloated military is one of the reasons Americans can be so comfortable. No one wants to fuck with you, and everyone wants to be on your good side.
>Jamal and Julio working hard to get out of the ghetto and setting themselves up to be productive members of society
How dare a man work to provide for himself?!? The government obviously needs mo dem programs.
We could be Jamal and Julio to work at home instead having them jerk off in a shithole 6000 miles away.
There's plenty of infrastructure that needs to be repaired in this country.
>almost model rotc cadet
>doing pretty good n shit
>have to wear stupid fucking cammies everywhere
>have to salute for some fat shitbag who didn't do shit
>i can deal with this
>oh also can't smoke weed
>fuck that i'm out
civilian pet peeves about soldiers
>when they dont quite understand that you dont really give a shit about their branch and are just trying to make conversation when all you know about them is that they were in the armed forces because its all they ever talk about
>when they seem to think most people are pussies for not volunteering to go half way across the country to do daily exercises, learn to clean a gun, and get screamed at by muscly fags
>when they get asspained about jokes based on the stereotypes of their occupation, even though most jobs have similar jokes and nobody else throws a fit about it
why cant you guys go somewhere else and whine. 90% of you have never seen combat and even if you had, this isnt weapons related
>Never had any intentions of going to a place where the possibility of dying is pretty high.
Anon, I have some bad news for you. You will die. Hiding under your bed won't stop it. Playing one last chess game won't stop it. You can't stop it.
Um, ok, look, I'm not real good at explaining this shit. Go ask your mommy.
