My roommate brought home her new boyfriend for us to meet. I haven’t been too impressed regarding her choices in men in the past, but this bozo takes the cake. He sat up all last night till 3 a.m. (!!!) bragging on himself and his “past” as a Special Forces op. which I’ve got a sneaking suspicion is fake.
This guy is a loud-mouth moron who’s favorite pastime is to brag on himself. According to him, he was Special Forces Recon in Grenada (when he was 17?) until he was given an honorable discharge. However, he cannot correctly identify the insignia (bars, medals, etc.) of the US Armed Forces. But he’s got a 188 IQ. Oh, and he completed his training in half the required time. And he’s one of the most dangerous fighters in the world. He even took out a little card he claims was given to him by a military psychiatrist – it says something like “I’m a certified deadly weapon, blah blah blah… so stay the hell out of my face, blah blah blah.” I’m not an expert, but I highly doubt the military would issue something like this with such unprofessional language. I kept trying to ask him specific questions about his military service – where were you trained? What theater did you serve in? But he answered vaguely, and kept derailing the conversation back to how badass he is. Did you know he once whipped 6 men in a bar brawl? And that he carried his friend 3/4ths of a mile to the hospital? Even though he (not his friend) had a smashed knee and he had to drag his right leg the whole way?
To hear this braggart talk, he’s smarter than Einstein, tougher than a hickory stump, and so close to Jesus they have joint-checking. Maybe I’m completely wrong, maybe he was Special Forces Recon during Grenada, but he sure doesn’t act like it. I’ve known several genuine veterans, including a general, a colonel, and my Daddy (RIP) who was a Purple Heart Recepient, and not one of them acted or talked like this moron. You could’ve known my Daddy for 10 years and never known he had a Purple Heart, he didn’t boast about it or himself. But there was nothing he hated more than a phony.
I’m planning on having this braggart checked out. If he’s legit, there should be records on his service. I want to know what the real story is here.
