    i went there for lunch with my lady. i had the chicken gnocchi soup, she had the salad, we each ate a bread stick, and then we split the shrimp scampi fritta.

    at a table in front of me, i saw a old white headed geezer sit down with some younger people. the waitress asked if anyone there was a vet or active duty military. they all said the old geezer was a vet. the waitress asked him for i.d. he said, "i have my driver's license, does that work?" waitress said, "no, i need your military i.d." geezer said, "i don't have one. i was in korea 60 years ago.

    next thing i know, the manager comes over. he's a douchey douche and says, "i understand we have a veteran here. when you got out, what form did they give you?"

    geezer says, "i don't remember. that was 60 years ago."

    manager was like "it was a dd... a dd two...?"

    geezer was like "i don't know, son."

    manager was like "uhhhhm, ok. i guess i can give you free lasagna. thanks for fighting in korea. i'm a vet, too."

    i was all like "fuck that manager for being a dick and giving a korean war vet a pop quiz."

    I'm guessing he was lying to get a free lasagna.

    The night I proposed to my wife we went out to a Tapas restaurant and they had a classical guitar player who played for the tables, we told him we just got engaged and he sent a bottle of Spanish wine over to our table. I told a coworker this and he and his wife now do it all the time. She just takes her wedding ring off, leaves on the engagement ring. He gets free deserts and drinks. Cheap fucker, him and his wife make decent money too.

    dude was in the military 60 years ago. and he looked like he was 85 years old.

    stupid faggit manager was probably a veteran from the us invasion of grenada an he's all like "i been to war."

    Hawkeye Pierce went crazy at the end of M*A*S*H* and thought a lady killed a clucking chicken when it was really her crying baby so I believe it.
