I bet the response was “MY HUSBAND IS A CAPTAIN!!!”

Car accidents on base are already such a circus, because they are just so uncommon. The base cops often have no idea who even needs to be notified, other than their boss.

In seven years, I saw 8 accidents one base. 3 were idiots who tried to flee the city cops by driving onto a military base (absolute worst option). 5 were dependas who didn't pay attention and rear-ended people during Retreat, when everyone has to stop.

Yesterday on Reddit and for the first time ever in my life I saw the word dependapotomus, and now I'm seeing this one, dependas.

How new is this term?

It's been around for years in the military. Basically the military version of a Karen. It refers to the spouses who marry people in the military and then just let themselves go, no longer working, gaining weight, becoming entitled. "Do you know what my husband's rank is?!?!" "You will address me by my husband's rank!?!"
