An active duty soldier, who served two tours in Afghanistan, was back stateside when he decided to go out to eat. When he got to the cashier, he asked if they offered a discount. A woman in line behind him thought it would be a good idea to disrespect him in a big way right in front of everyone, but he and everyone else got the last laugh.
Unfortunately, the establishment where the unidentified soldier went to eat didn’t offer a discount, which he was fine with, but he wouldn’t have known unless he asked. However, a snotty woman behind him thought it was rude to even inquire about it, then accused him of being “entitled” because he serves our nation proudly. Big mistake.
Bravo, soldier! Sometimes people need to be put in check when they forget why it is they’re even able to run their ignorant mouths. This soldier’s epic tale doesn’t end there, however.
Amen. It’s sad that as a nation, we’ve become so far detached from the principles that made us great — one of which is supporting the warriors who volunteer to protect our rights and our freedoms.
God Bless our troops, and God Bless America!
