Sgt visited me at home

Postby OPPWife » Mon Mar 16, 2015 1:39 pm

My husband's platoon Sgt. came to my house to discuss my husband's probation but told me that I wasn't allowed to tell him about the visit. During the half hour visit, he told me that my husband was a screw up, and that he has already made arrangements with HR for his dismissal. He has been with his coach for 8 weeks now. The Sgt. also told me that I don't know my husband at all because I didn't marry a cop, I married my husband while still in University.

Is it normal for a Sgt. to come to the house like this?

I stand to be corrected by an OPP, or other PS, member (active OR retired), but this is NOT normal from my perspective, and SHOULD be shared with your spouse, who SHOULD talk to someone FAR above this Sgt's head.

I am hearing a train whistle in the not-too-far distance, and its getting closer.

Sorry, something smells VERY fishy about this post!

If I am wrong I apologize, but OPPwife, feel free to PM either myself or opp2 to confirm this is a true story. Unless we hear from you, I will lock down this topic in a day or two as a hoax.

I also invite further up-dates, and if OPPWife prefers, I am willing to receive a private message, as I am sure the rest of the moderators would - probably best that it is sent to multiple moderators at the same time, or I would certainly pass it onto my esteemed associates.

What other contact have you had with this sgt? Seems really weird.

Well, that's certainly troubling. You probably are best to keep this private. The good people here will definitely be able to give you proper advice. I wish you well.

Aside from the first meeting to say hello when we first relocated, we have had no contact.

Thanks for the PMs. I think you can now understand why we first thought this story was a possible hoax.

Please follow the advice that opp2 gave you in a PM. She knows what she is talking about, and would never steer you wrong.

Hang in there and let us know what happens.
