Being a military spouse is a big deal to some people. Their husband or wife joins the military, and in order to go with them, they travel to whichever base their spouse happens to be stationed at. It can oftentimes be a lonely life. So the military spouses become a tight-knit group. After all, who else can you spend time with while you’re at the base?
Maybe that’s why so many military spouses take their partner’s ranking so seriously. They think that because their husband or wife is an official who should be saluted and treated with the utmost regard, that they should get the same treatment. That’s pretty silly to think about in regards to most other jobs, though. If your husband is a firefighter, you wouldn’t go around wearing a fire helmet and borrowing their valor. So why do so many military spouses get so caught up in this?
This person, u/CitizenAlpha, unfortunately had to deal with a military wife who wanted to be treated just like her husband. She even had the nerve to ask for a salute! How very entitled of her.
Next up, if you want to hear a story of someone just as entitled, check out the tale of the aunt who wrote a scathing note in reply to a Christmas card from her nephew—it’s totally worth the read.
