    WTF is it with officers who think that just because they have a little bling on their collar devices, they can throw it around and expect enlisted folks to dance a jig and say, Sir, yes Sir...

    Case in point. Good parking spaces are scarce after 0700 every day. Anytime after that you have to park up on the hill. A steep hill. Sometimes during lunch, the spaces empty for people leaving for chow but fill up again after 1200.

    So, I get lucky and find a spot but had to back up into it. Another car was pulling around the corner just as I finish backing in. I get out of the car and as I am walking to my office, the other car beeps its horn. A convo ensues:

    Officer: Hey Mari....ummm... Doc....ummmm....RP. How about you let me park in that spot.

    Me: :confused: Sir, is there a reason you need me to move my car?

    Officer: Well, my passenger is Col. Soandsuch and it would be beneficial to us both if we could park close to the building.

    Me: Sir, if your passenger rates me moving my car to park then he would also rate the proper protocol which would be to pull the car up to the door, you get out to open the door for him, then to find a parking spot until he is ready to leave.

    Officer: :rant2: Nevermind. :mad:

    I've always hated the preferential parking.
    Fun fact: You can't be ticketed for parking in preferential parking.

    No hate at all. I just can't stand when officers try to take advantage of a situation because of the rank on their collars.

    on my base there is one officer MAA that wears BDU's, and all other BDU wearers are enlisted, and he gets all pissy when people don't recognize his camoflauged collar devices. I mean, c'mon.

    2 more fun facts:
    1.) I was a Marine MP, and none of the bases I worked on EVER ticketed for preferential parking.
    2.) I'm too damn lazy to go and lok for that. I don't remember nearly as well as I probably should, but for Marines/Navy, the instruction will be 5800.something. I park in CO/XO spots whenever I feel the need to (raining/really hot/stuff to carry). Of course, I'm civilian now, so I have no fear of repercussions.

    we have AA and BB parking for all the high ranking officers.
    They do ticket for parking in those spots.
