πŸͺ– NSFW: A Young Man Decides to join the Army.

 



 This is Not Safe for Work and may not be appropriate for all readers.


A brave young man during WW2 decides he is going to join the Army and show his father he is ready to be a man.

The father, who was a veteran himself, and thought this is exactly what his son would need.
His son was always small, scared, and afraid of hard work.


“About time you finally decide to do something with your life, you lazy bum!” His father said furiously. “The Army will make a man out of you!”

When the boy gets on the bus, his father barely says goodbye.

A few weeks pass and the next thing you know the son is walking down the road. Assumably finished with training and coming home to pay his father at her a visit.

His father is shocked with the transformation of his son. Noting that he might even be a little taller than before. Broader in the shoulders even. Definitely a little more confident.

“Son!” He exclaims. “Look at you, all strong and handsome. I knew the military is exactly what you needed. I knew those instructors would line you out. Tell me everything. How did it go?”

“Well...” the son starts, “I had the hardest drill instructors that they have ever had. They made us run 5 miles our very first day. Then, after keeping us up for 2 days without food, they made us do this obstacle course in the rain.”

At this, the father is positively beaming with tears in his eyes. “Go on!” He urges, “what else?!”

“Well after that we had to train in hand-to-hand combat, and turns out, I was top of my class.” The son continued.

“Of course you were! That’s my blood you got in you there!” The father bellowed, grinning from ear to ear. “What else?”

“Well you see, after that they took us up in a plane, and you know how scared of heights I am… and well… I froze.” The son said with hesitation. “And the drill instructor said to me, “YOU BETTER JUMP OUT OF THIS PLANE, OR I'M GONNA FUCK YOU RIGHT IN THE ASS!”

At this point, the father is on the edge of his seat. He looks his son dead in the eyes and says, “well of course you jumped, right…!?!?”

At which point the son replies, “Oh yea! A little at first, but after a while it was all good.”

 

Moral of the Story: Don't ask, don't tell...
