Military Police are great. They serve and protect and for the most part have no problem with them . Well there was that time I got pulled on Wheeler Army Airfield for going 20 in a 15MPH school zone…dude it was Summer! Frankly I have no qualms with them except this one little annoying thing they do .
The Back Story
Hubby and son go to PX one day to get some stuff for our grill.
Hubby and son come home with dog from Humane Society that was being sold in front of Schofield PX.
Dog starts off great but becomes to hyper for me and I am scared of dogs.
I create new household rule that Natalie (that’s her name) must remain outside during the workday.
One early morning while I am looking ugly as hell Natalie digs herself out the yard and is reported for running in the streets of our housing area.
I hear loud bang at my front door and it’s ONE MP.
He explains situation to me and next thing I know there are 3 MP cars at my house.
I am now being stared in the face by damn near 5 MP’s.
Keep in mind I have severe anxiety and being embarrassed sets that into motion to like a level 10. School is beginning soon and the moms who like to walk and aren’t lazy enough like me to drive the 45 seconds it takes to get down the road by car are now walking by giving me “that look”. You know that look you give the person stopped by the police because you are glad it’s them and not you. PT is now ending and the influx of soldiers returning home to get ready for work is making the situation look ten times worse then it should be. Sweat beads are forming on my head. Okay well in my mind it felt like they were and I was having a hot flash at 28.
You know one of those nervous hot flashes. I was thinking about how I was probably about to be arrested , how I wanted to punch my husband in the face for not fixing the damn hole like I told him to and not being home from PT Yet to go through this embarrassment with me, and thinking about how I looked as everyone walked past my house in judgment. They probably thought we were being raided!
After the suspect is apprehended I thought they would quickly leave and my shame would be over. No instead you want to stand outside and congregate to chat with your pals. Dude Leave LOL!
Point is do you really need to send a whole squad every time something goes wrong on post?
Have you ever had a run in with the MP’s on base? Was it just one MP or the whole unit.
