Everyone's allowed their own opinions. 1 and 23 chose to post derogatory comments, but I do understand the emotions that guided them. It does little good to make any kind of negative statements about the military or soldiers though, even when very polite, because the people who support the military do so wholeheartedly. Any argument that shows less than enthusiastic feelings toward the military usually ends in dozens of people all screaming at the offender. Saying you don't like the marines is basically saying that you enjoy mass murder or want to kill a kitten- it causes a similar amount of fury. Even an intelligent debate about people's opinions is rarely received well, so rude comments will certainly be given many thumbs. I've seen both sides. The majority of my family is military, and many of my customers at work are soldiers. I'd say about one third of them are decent and kind, but the other two thirds will cuss you out or sneer at you. That's just what I feel. I'm going to go away now.
Dude, doc and pog8691 most of us kinda are douchebags. Sure it's infuriating when civilians who don't know their mouths from there assholes act like they have any right to judge our behavior but you can't blame them. Also the chick should probably dump him. For the most part we're great lays but terrible boyfriends.
some guys have weird obsessions with cars. That's the way my dad is.
61- oh, it's cool to know that stereotyping people because they're in the military is ok... I mean, the whole fighting for our safety and freedom deserves no respect? And don't you even bring up the stupid wars, that's not the military's fault. That's fucking politicians. Yes, it was bad of him, but one example cannot speak for a vast and diverse group of people. Your inductive logic has failed you.
61- I'm a military spouse as well. All throughout basic and AIT my husband wanted pictures of me, wrote letters, and called every chance he got. My friends's husbands were just the same. Not all military personnel are like OP's and your husband. Coincidently, in relation to the FML, we bought a new car while he was away and he only asked for two pictures [interior and exterior] and that was only because he wasn't there to help pick it out. FYL OP. Obviously something is wrong if after months of not seeing or talking to you he's only interested in his car.
PnKaos you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. We're insensitive because after all the shit we've seen and done nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can invoke the same emotions. Moreover we are constantly taught, especially in the corps, that we must keep ourselves to a higher moral standard due to the intensity of the situations in which we will find ourselves. And to wrap it up, if you ever call a marine a soldier to his face he'll punch you in the dick.
I tried to come up with something witty but words fail me: I can't see why anyone would ever love their car more than their gf
That doesn't mean he loves his car more than her. I would think he already has plenty of pictures of the OP or is able to see her on her Facebook (and such). Now he wants to see his car too. ***Many guys love and take pride in their cars. Mine does. Also drags me to car shows and watches those car auctions and Pimp my ride shows on TV. :P
57 - because ONLY rich people run for public office, and ONLY broke 18-22 year olds sign up for the military. That was almost painful to type. Smack yourself in the face with your ignorance and stereotypes. They're dense enough to make quite the impact, I imagine.
Don't get too revved up about it, OP. As long as he neglects you, just remind him his stick won't be shifting any time soon. In fact, you might want to consider hitting the brakes on the relationship altogether, if this continues. Don't give him the opportunity to torque about it, either.
