I don't normally blog about my Coast Guard life... but today I have to get somthing off my chest. If you join the military please understand that military ranking does NOT go by your age. In my case, I joined at the age of 19. This upcoming weekend I will have 5 years in the Coast Guard. Others wait to join later in their 20s which is absolutely 100 percent fine! I am all for it! However, what I am not for is someone who joined later in their 20s thinking that just because they are on the verge of 30, they don't have to respect someone who is younger than them but higher ranking. Now i'm not talking about Officers, I know it happens there too but I am talking about two enlisted people. Just because you are older and joined later does not mean that it takes away from the respect I earned by doing my time and making rank! You are just making yourself look like an ASS! Especially when you try to get someone even higher ranking involved and are blatantly disrespectful in front of them! Do you not cherish your evals? OR the reputation that you are giving off? Sheesh!! Ok ok, thats my rant for the day! It doesn't happen too often but I just had to get it off my chest!
I hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday! Mine was pretty good other than the above rant. I got to talk to my hubs on FB chat for a few mins :) that's always a booster to my day! Now I am home and my sweet puppy and laying on top of my feet snoozing! Sigh What a great life I have! :)
