LOL its always the Canadian Tire  ::)

Another one:

Okay I was out side of a grocery store called Fortinos, and there was this suspicious looking female teenager who walked out with a backpack on. Then like 5 seconds later, two managers run out and chase her down. One of them grabbed her and shes like " I didn't take nothing man " and then her bag rips open an ALL THIS MECHANDISE started pouring out. It was hilarious, but I was so scared (I don't know why). It had stuff like Oxy Pads and Christmas cards and toothbrushes. The funny thing is that there was a police station right to the left.

I remember on my first tag day (you figure out the year), someone came up and asked if I'd enjoyed shooting at the Mohawk Indians in Oka, Quebec that summer.

Its the same when people try to test you by asking "What did you get that badge for?" my personal favourite answer is "For killing twenty people...with my bare hands"


LMAO I'm gonna use that! ;D :D ;D ;)

Ah yes, good ol' tagging.
The first scary-ish experience I had while tagging was back when I was a Navy League Cadet. Another lad and myself were parked in front of a bi-way and the weather was nice. This fellow, who I'd estimate to be in his early twenties, and a fair bit larger than I was at age 12, comes up to me and stands about 6 inches away from me staring at my face. I could tell he was under the influence of something or other. I glance at my buddy and he looks quite terrified. I look back at the guy in front of me and calmly ask "Hi, would you like to help support the Navy Lea...". "NO!!!" he replies sharply "I don't...i think you should quit whatever the eff you're in and start smoking big fat doobies!!!!"
Calmly, and insincerely I tell him that I'll consider doing as he advised. "Remember...roll'em fat, man, roll'em fat!" he reminds me as he walks away.

Fast-forward a few years. I was now in sea cadets. I'm tagging at a mall. I ask some woman walking out of Zellers for her support. Her daughter of perhaps five is there with her. As the lady puts money in my tag box, the daughter asks "mommy, who's that?" and her mother replies "that's a soldier, he shoots people." First of all I was so shocked that she said that I found myself unable to correct her, but it was only later that I realized the irony. That was a fairly hippy response to her daughter's question, so I found it odd that she was actually giving me money.

I'm sure I've got more, I'll post again

I STRONGLY suggest you do not use that. That person "testing" you could be me coming up to you to find out about Sea/Air cadet insignias, or a fellow army cadet trying to engage you in conversation and share stories. If i heard that, i would give you a heck of a lecturing on how you acting a fool affects all of us...then I'd make sure a senior or officer in your corps give you the same kind of lecture again.

I actually did that before, I was at the mall and some Air Cadets were tagging there ... so I asked a few of them some questions about Air Cadets or what its about ... most of them didn't have any problems.

Ha, I wasn't going to use it in public, just between the new recruits and stuff. My CO would kill me if he found out I said that to someone in the public.

Thank you for the quick reply. I just Don't like it when people catagorize us all in the same catagory. LOL I also kind of forgot that most parts of Canada are, let's say brighter, than Scarborough.

Just an observation.  It takes away from your point when you argue against stereotypes in one sentence and then fall back on one (even in jest) in the next.

I got a lot of TAG stories, mine was just this weekend.
On Thursday I went with a Sgt. we saw 3 people freestyle rapping, and a 70 year old lady driving a sports car. Plus the "see you then" technique.
Friday I went with an LAC(Leading Air Cadet) equivlant to Private. It was boring, too many war veterans, and too many smokers and drinkers and no customers.
Saturday morning I was with a coporal and a Seargent, too many funny stories about flirting techniques, and the guy that says, "I'm in the Navy." Plus, the other guy that comes to up to me, and says, "I lost a friend in war, that's enough." In addition, to the officer from another squadron.

There was once this REALLY, REALLY cool veteran I was talking to. He was waiting for his bus, (which he called his girlfriend, because he had to "wait forever for it to be ready".) He had a heavy accent and was born in Austria, turned out he had been in 2 concentration camps, married a supermodel and had 3 kids. He even started doing monkey drill with his cane. He then treated myself and two other younger cadets to pizza and pop. (I didn't accept at first, I mean heck, the poor old man needs his money, but one of the recruits accepted.)

Another scary time was my first night out tagging. A rather scary looking man with a stagger walked up to me and came in really, really close to my face. He started a conversation but I noticed he didn't really know what he was talking about. I caught him glancing down at my chest, where I had the button at the top open, many times, with his eyebrows raised and his eyes wide. I cleared my throat and he hobbled off...

I dont have any stories from tag day. But last time I did tag day I did 2 shifts in a row back to back, wont do that again unless I have to. I actually only had one conversation with somebody asking me how promotions work and just general questions about cadets.
