Military men risk their lives every day to serve the nation. They are sent to different parts of the world without even an assurance that they can go home alive. So, can you imagine being away from your loved ones and be deployed in a dangerous place to make sure that people can live in a safe country only to get home and have an ignorant woman disrespect you? This unnamed young veteran experienced this while ordering food at Jollibee, a fast-food restaurant.
The man was ordering food at counter when he asked the cashier if there is a military discount. A woman whose face was blurred in the video immediately followed what the veteran said with a “wow, that’s rude” remark. He asks her what she means, and she told him that veterans think that they are entitled to special privileges just because they are in the military. The surprised veteran answered the woman and made her shut up.
The young veteran answered the rude woman, “It’s not a privilege, it’s a discount. A privilege is getting to go home, to home to your family every night, to go home in a free country because some people give up their privileges so that people like you can have them.” He also apologized to the cashier if he had offended her. Meanwhile, the rude woman wasn’t able to say anything back, maybe realizing that she was wrong and just left. Another woman behind the veteran was so kind enough to offer to pay for his order, but the manager of the fast-food chain witnessing all of it steps in to give the order for free.
Veterans should not be treated like this, because they do give up their privilege so that we can live in a free country. Watch the full video here:
