I was minding my own damn business on twitter thinking about getting another tall glass of coffee from my fridge and then boom. BOOM. This shitty new CBS show’s twitter account comes flying onto my timeline.
If you know anything about Marines, you know that we love to call each other boots. The description in the tweet is accurate. That’s what a boot is. A boot is someone new, someone junior, someone who hasn’t done as much as you. You can be a General and be a boot. If you’ve been a General for 6 months and your buddy gets his 4th star after you, you can call him or her a boot. That’s just the way it goes.
So this Captain calling a 1stLt “not a boot but a Marine” is as gross as I’ve ever seen. I literally sat up in my bed and started typing sitting upright. That’s how shocking this tweet was to me.
But, I decided to go on. And now I regret it.
WHAT IS THIS? Can she balance being a lawyer Marine and planning a wedding? A WEDDING? Buddy, boots get married all the fucking time. It’s what we do. We get married. We get divorced. We smoke cigs and pack cans of long cut. Can she fucking handle both?! First of all, it’s 2019. She can do whatever she sets her mind to include something as complicated as *****checks notes**** planning a wedding. Second, you wouldn’t ask that about a male Marine. For shame, CBS.
Lastly, for now, because this show has made me its enemy, this salute.
I’ll let you think about it for a minute.
Just really let this sink in.
FOR FUCK SAKE!
LOOK AT IT!
LOOK AT THIS SHIT!
WHY IS THE SENIOR MEMBER SALUTING THE JUNIOR MEMBER FIRST?! WHHHHYYYYYYYYYYY
CBS’s the Code… I will not rest until you are canceled. CANCELED! You made a mockery of my beloved Corps. Lastly, get a fucking haircut, Captain. Jesus Christ.
Also, listen to zero blog thirty. Thank you.
