Thank you for your service.
I am not a vet, but I love listening to vets tell jokes about each other. They have some of the best stories. I went to college with people who were in the military and ones that did church missions. Those 2 groups had the best stories.
PaperTrail9443153d> "But I can make fun of vets, other branches, and those serving. I've paid my dues, and they're OK with it."
Yea, I'm surrounded with several from different branches and oh man, the Navy and Air Force guys are brutal with the insults.
You'd think "Oh sh*t...these two are about to go to blows", but nope..a laugh and its back to normal.
I have a good friend who is a Marine. I said, "The Marines are basically a branch of the Navy right?" (This is a loaded question btw.) He responded: "Technically yes, but we like to think of ourselves as the men's department."
IntrusionCM12772153dYes... And no...
It's the typical group psychology.
A recruiter doesn't belong in the group, hence they shouldn't take part in it.
I usually don't care - as long as someone doesn't start being "unintentionally intentionally offensive".
Like "Ah the nerds, sitting all day in front of the computer, what a wonderful life".
Which is insulting in my opinion.
Don't know vets to be honest, but I kinda would expect to get my ass whooped asking a vet if doing a regular job wouldn't be a better choice...
atheist7592153dI think recruiters don't "get it" so it's just cringe...
phat-lasagna2230153dIt’s more cringe to me too, like “ok fs why don’t you come down to the kitchen and cook with us then”
AleCx0428288153d@Demolishun A close friend of mine would go back and forth with this sort of thing:
"Army is for Ain't Really Marines Yet right?"
"Could be, all things considered, Marines goes for My Ass Rides In Navy Equipment Sir! no?"
"Yeah whatever, don't you have to train for your 30 push up PT event?"
"oh smart one! here, have a crayola, red, your favorite"
Etc etc, shit is always fun and we all crack up
ars12500153dThe army should do that for recruiting. "Bombing nerds in other countries since the 1700s! Come join the fun 🎉".
AvatarOfKaine2860153dwe're not the army the ground pounding army :P
Midnight-shcode4852147dsounds like the n-word situation, which always seemed weird to me.
but in the context of what you said about vets and geeks, it actually makes sense to me.
