Stuff Navy SEALs Say

This is now one of our regular posts and was inspired by SOFREP’s very own Laura Simonian, and her sharing of Shit People Say in LA on YouTube with me. Look for a SOFREP YouTube version on our channel soon.

It’s pretty safe to safe that most Spec Ops/SOF guys have no inner monologue.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on the road with the guys and some single Team Guy will say out loud “boy, I would really like to rip our waitress’s clothes off.” This would be alright if she wasn’t standing right there of course.  This lack of inner monologue only gets worse when you add beer to the mix. Enjoy…..

    In all good fun and support of some of us "large ones" that are additionally "10 %ers" there's a lot more than 10 % that are drop-dead gorgeous and the "large" parts are curves. But my USA Daddy would be spinning in his grave in Pensacola if he even thought a Squid was around-LOL !!!

    @carrissima A guy may never stop thinking those words, but any one that has half the self discipline it takes to be a good mate will work on an internal filter.  It's that or the negative reinforcement training with wooden spoon, like Mom would use.

    @Old PH2 Thank you OlD PH2 that was a highly inteliigent and welll thought out  response for me. I did not expect that and was pleasantly surprised!   I will remember that and repeat your exact words the next time I am out on a  date with a man and he drops the f bomb which unfortunetly they seem to so often  do.
