ROTC and JROTC cadets that think they're bad A$$e$. Not all are bad, but a select few around here I've had some interesting conversations with. Especially last Saturday at an annual military ball the local high school NJROTC hosts every year. I'm used to all the local HS cadets because I help out the local recruiter, but two Army ROTC cadets showed up. This was fine with all of the chaperones, including me. They got mad at me and a good friend of mine because she wouldn't dance with them, but she did with me. Well they approached me and her(whom is also in the NG) and started harassing her. Well I told them they had to leave if they was going to start trouble. The senior cadet tried pulling rank on me!! I was like "WTF?!" (I didn't use vulgar language during the whole conversation) That didn't go over to well with me when he tried to order me to parade rest. Well I looked over at the NCO's in charge and they gave me the ok to let into this kid. He's talking all kinds of crap, but I shut him up real quick by pointing out uniform deficiencies. I'm not going to go into much detail about the rest of the event, but they were moving with a purpose when they left. It's really stupid to trash talk someone's career when they haven't even done anything. Point is it really irks me when cadets have no respect for members of the military because they think they out rank and can do anything we do. They don't even know.
