    Employer rant...

    My boss is Walter from The Big Lebowski.

    The guy somehow inserts his service in Vietnam into any conversation that deals with suffering, danger, the war in Iraq, or employee references to an office shooting. The only problem is, he wasn't diving into tunnels or dragging mortally-wounded shrimp recipe experts during 'Nam, he worked in some general's office (probably doing his taxes) about as far from hardcore combat as you can get.

    He likes to tout that if the Vietcong ever made it in far enough, he'd've been the last line of defense for the general, even though he tends to leave out that if it ever got to that point, the general would probably be on a chopper out of there before he could unholster his pistol. While I am not trying to denigrate his service to this country whatsoever, I just find it a tad disingenuous to portray yourself as Rambo when you're really Radar.

    These days, I've resorted to a loud "ugh" and brisk walkaway when he starts in on it.

    Commonly used in the service to degrade non-combat soldiers.
