Woman Doesn't Understand Price for Military Discount?

A soldier asked a clerk if they gave military discounts. A customer snapped at him saying "All of you think you're entitled because you're in the military and deserve special privileges." Guess she didn't think about what she was saying since she is in fact enjoying the privilege of being free to say whatever she wants because that soldier was willing to risk his life to defend it.

A Woman Tried to Put a U.S. Soldier In His Place, What Happened Next Will Leave You Smiling

I have a card in my wallet and get discounts because my husband became disabled serving others like her. My Dad also provided us with a card for discounts when I was growing up because he risked his life and also became disabled. When this woman insulted the soldier, she didn't just insult him, but every current member of military risking their lives everyday along with their families and all the other generations of military families.

So from a member of a "privileged" family, that woman has the right to remain ignorant of her own privilege to enjoy the freedom she has provided by those willing to die for it.
