It’s pretty safe to say 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.

Shit Navy SEALs Say

It pays to be a winner: A term often used by SEAL instructors to explain that if you don’t “put out” during exercise until you puke or pass out, that it will only get worse.  They aren’t lying and it took me a few weeks of being on the Goon Squad (a painful club of extra beatings and torture) to figure this out.

It sucks to be you (or insert “him”): This is a term of endearment and empathy towards fellow SEALs.  It usually means some poor SEAL student getting his a** handed to him (often whispered among fellow classmates) or some poor bastard that just swam over the beach, unpacked his waterproof bag for a change out and realized he forgot his boots (15 mile click in wetsuit booties to follow).

Don’t be that guy: A SEAL student term used a warning to others.  I was “that guy” for most of first phase and it sucked, no one wants to hang out with the guy that’s getting beaten on by the instructor staff!

Shut Your Fucking Cock Holster/s:  This is often used by SEAL Instructors to request that the students stop talking and pay attention.  It is usually immediately followed by extreme silence for fear of death or cold water immersion. It is also used by other more experienced SEALs to notify “New Guys” that they don’t know shit and need to stop talking.  If this is not followed then expect to be hazed.  I once saw a junior officer (usually the biggest offenders) stuffed in a metal cruise box with a tank and regulator (no mask), followed by immersion in our water dip tank.  When the bubbles stopped after about 30 minutes they pulled him out. To this day he is one of the quietest SEAL officers I know.
