    First let me say this... "You'll never take me alive, ya lousy pigs!"

    Okay, that's out of the way.

    So... one of my neighbors is a cop... a pretty nice guy, but he can be kinda dickish sometimes. The other day my wife greeted him as "Officer" and he got all bent out of shape. He was like, "I'm not Officer Clancy, I'm Sergeant Clancy."

    Oh... every time I see him I goes, I goes, "Clancy. Take the boys and surround the house." He hates it... which only serves to enhance the retardesqueish amusement it brings me.

    So anyway... after he corrrrects my wife, he goes on to say, "You calling me 'officer' is like me calling you 'nurse'."

    Now this is bullshit, right? I mean... doctor and nurse are two different things... two completely different degrees and qualifications... it's not like you can be promoted from a nurse up to a doctor.

    And, as far as I know, calling a cop "officer" is like calling an Army guy "soldier"... right? I mean... even if you're a five star general, you're still a soldier, right? Would an Army sergeant take offense at being called "soldier" because he's a sergeant?

    I made my argument... he disagreed. I didn't push the issue because he was armed with a gun and a taser at the time.

    A cop taking offense at being called "officer" because he's a police sergeant is dickish and basically wrong, right?

    Amirite?

    Not a cop here, but it sounds like he was joking about the formal greeting.
    Either that or he is a massive asshole with deep self hate issues.

    Officer is a generic respectful greeting from civilians who have no idea of the internal structure or titles.
    At least that is what I always thought, I'd be surprised to hear otherwise from those on the job..

    Maybe he's got a thing for your chick and was either pissed she went formal on him or wanted to tell her how important he was to impress her.

    It can't be as simple as taking offense to 'officer' as a greeting. He's got issues.

    White people problems.

    Eh, why don't you just call him a silly cocksucker?

    Actually in all honesty I've had this problem in my own life. I've had people call me a choker-setter, and I'm like "listen you no talent pussy, I'm a landing-chaser... so take that home and fuck your mom with it". Little logging humor for you silly douche bags.

    I had an instructor in college that insisted on being called "Dr." - professor or sir were out of line with this cocksucker. Class came to a screeching halt when anybody addressed his as anything other than Dr. and an overblownly stern reprimand was issued to the offender.

    I'm sure he made his wife call him "Dr." at home too.

    One day he was going on a diatribe about students skipping class and how disrespectful it was to him as someone who earned the title of Dr. After a few minutes of him aiming his bitching about non-attendees to those of us in attendance, the non-trad old-timer that sat in the front of the class got up, pulled out a pack of Marlboro Reds, headed for the door and told the good Dr., "Darryl, I'm going outside to smoke while you bitch."

    Dr. Darryl was (Jim Norton voice) LIVID!!!

    Because Dr. Darryl was an unreasonable prick with an overinflated sense of self worth because of the extra few years he spent in school.

    Some people are naturally cocksuckers. Their position of authority ratchets up their level of cocksucker-ness to an unacceptable level.

    You should start referring to your neighbor as Cadet.

    Did you miss the part where I said he was armed with a gun and a taser?

    Well I guess it would be like calling someone the wrong rank in the Military... ergo calling a CPO a PO or something...

    I hate that, when non-MD people call themselves Doctor. My sons school principal or whoever the fuck he is, does that. Who cares? I hear Dr I think medical not education. As for the Sgt, he sounds like a douche but calling him a cop would have been more generic, I know where I'm from the actual rank is Police Officer, then the next rank is Sgt, then so on and so on.

    Yeah... but 'officer' isn't a rank. It's just a generic term which basically means "law enforcement person".

    If somebody had called me a sailor when I was in the Navy, I wouldn't have said, "No, shitbag! I'm not a sailor, I'm a 2nd class petty officer!"

    All the cops I've ever known were always fine with officer and if you called them a sergeant when they were a lieutenant or something they were just the types to mention their correct rank and were more interested in explaining the differences in rank and how you could tell them apart - most cops like to talk to the public about cop stuff

    In college many of the professors were doctors some wanted to be called doctor, some didn't care whether you called them professor or even mr. / miss and some wanted to be called by their first name
    In grad school all of them were doctors but all were called professor or their first name

    There is just always assholes

    Your story reminds me of Barbra Boxer when she made a fool of herself demanding to be called Senator


    I go out of my way to be friendly with police, doing so has served me well for over 20 years

    If you know I am a sgt and you call me officer I wouldn't give a shit. If you didn't know I would probably mention it once but then I wouldn't care after that. Why? I don't know. It's not a power thing but maybe a pride thing. Guys want people to know they aren't 'just a cop'. Either way if you get mad at it off duty then you're a douche.

    Sgt think they are better than cops and dets.
    LTs think they are better than sgts, cops, and dets.
    Captains think they are better that lts sgts and cops.
    Detectives think they are better than everybody.
    Narco guys think they seen the most shit and the rest of the job is a bunch of pussies.

    Truth is anyone who gets mad at it, especially off duty, is a dick. They all started out as cops. They forgot they were "just a white shield" once also. They got promoted because they took a test. That's it.

    And you can tell him I said that. And instead of the surround the house go with 'you might rabbit you might..." Hilarious.

    I would write a bunch more that you could show hm but I have to run.

    But what if someone called you "soldier" ;)

    I've run into a few douchebag "soldiers" that insisted they be called "Specialist". Apparently those guys peeled the most potatoes or something.

    When Marines snap at people who call them "soldier"... "I'm not a soldier. It's Marine!"

    Lighten up, Francis.

    Next time he tells you "its Sgt" and you really want to piss him off ask "but you were a cop once right?" And if he says yes follow it up with..

    so you took the test for more money or because you were tired of doing actual police work?

    In some departments it is the actual title of a rank...the lowest one. That doesn't make him any less of a dick, though.

    Just so you know where this guy is coming from... he basically admitted to me once, in very simple terms, that he became a cop because he likes to hit people... especially black people.

    He should move to a more "target rich" environment... say Detroit.

    Call him Barney Fife. I hear that's a nice term of endearment.
