I was on another forum and some guys posts this. We have some internet tough guys here and I thought they might like this.
Would this have gotten you into a fight???
So in my younger day I was quite the hot head. I would swing and had at the drop of a hat or for a wrong glance. I am now 30 years old. I am a SSgt in the Marines. I am a combat vet of both Iraq and Afghanistan. I am in Special operations. Worked years as a bouncer/bartender, dabbled in martial arts, wrestled in college and know I have nothing to prove, and my wife knows I would never throw down just to impress her. I no longer go out looking for trouble and would prefer just to be left alone anytime I am out. I do not consider myself a barroom tough guy.
Well I was out with my wife and her friend at a local bar. Once we went in they went to the bathroom and I grabbed a pool table. As they were walking by some guy said “damn” and turned his head and watched them walk all the way to the bathroom staring them down like a piece of meat. I got his attention and held up my ring and said “ careful that’s my wife” . He simply shrugged his shoulders as if saying I don’t give a S==T. I started to walk over with pool stick in hand. I was out numbered and out sized. There were his 3-5 and all bigger then me. One of the girls in their group grabbed him and another tried flirting with me to get my attention off it. When my wife and her friend cam back I simply said it was time to go and left.
I know I technically did the right thing but I still feel like I let someone get away with disrespecting my wife and her friend. I am sure they would have gotten the better of me and I would have gotten a pretty good beating but not before I took the pool stick across his throat. All I could think about was smashing the pool stick across his face then breaking one of his legs with a strait kick to the knee cap.
So my question is what would you guys have done???
Thanks guys and have a good one.
