    A funny thing happened today

    Out at a local sports bar watching some football today with Hot Nursey and another couple. Nice hot day today so we are out on the patio watching the games. During a break in the action a semi-drunk guys comes over (he was vaping outside) and strikes up a conversation. He's short, kinda stubby with a long grey and black beard. Not a threat in any way, just being drunkenly friendly. They start talking high school football because they all went to high school in the same area. The guy stops mid sentence and looks at me. Here is our conversation:

    Guy: You look like a Navy SEAL. You're one of those SEAL's aren't ya?

    Me: No, I'm not a SEAL.

    Guy: You sure do look like one. I think you're a Navy SEAL.

    Me: No, not me. I've never even been in the military.

    Guy: You sure? Cause if I was going into Afghanistan I'd want you with me. You look like a tough mother f*cker.

    Me: Nah, not me.

    Guy: With that beard and your hat on backward I'd say you were a SEAL......So my kid went to REV, you guys go to REV? (He started talking High schools again).

    I thought it was pretty funny he was so persistent I had to be a SEAL. I'm not sure why, aside from having a beard and wearing my hat backward I was wearing shorts, flip flops and a black T-shirt with an American flag on it.

    Some of you might think he was trying to start sh*t but he was truly just a friendly drunk guy. I just thought the whole thing was funny.

    He didn't see all the hair and notice you were 8ft tall. Yeah he was drunk.

    I know 'stolen valor' is a crime. Is 'implied and assumed valor' a crime as well?

    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    I doubt he was trying to start any crap. When I drink once a week at my brothers, it's tradition, just one good IPA will get my mouth running nonstop. I don't drink more than two usually, no one would be able to stand me otherwise. I'm not aggressive, very friendly but I just talk and talk. This past Thursday, one of my other brothers leaned back on the couch and shook his head. I turned to him and he said I'm just amazed you told 4 different stories in 20 seconds.

    You sound like you have a lot of patience. Maybe he is just super into the SEALs and wanted to pick your brain.
    I know you know, but make sure you keep paying very close attention to your surroundings in this situation. He could have had ulterior motives, and/or a partner.

    Gee, Sasquatch, the first time I ever heard about you the guys in the forum were all bragging you could spin a ball on your nose.

    I thought you must be a SEAL, too....

    I agree with Chipper.

    The dude was a fag and was trying to pick you up.
