I mean I wouldn't want to offend anyone.
While at the DMV getting my Disabled Vet Plates, ( Free here in Denver ) a Cop said " Thank you for your service " I respond with, really ? Why ? No
reply from the officer.
I suppose after voicing his nonsensical little jingle fifty times daily no one ever asked him that question. Just said thanks and moved on.
Monday I'm at the Airport renting a plane for the day. I'm pulling my gear out of the jeep and a young fellow says " Hey man nice ride, thanks for
your service "
I simply nod, no problem.
I find these alleged compliments offensive. But hey, why should I bitch ? I'm gona git my " Onion " tomorrow .
I would urge you to think TWICE prior to voicing your feel good canned thank you. For many it rings hollow .
