Navy Vets, Do you get offened when a "AF puke" calls you a "squid"? I went shoping at the mall today, at one of the stores I started talking to the cashier... I let him know of my service in the AF (F-15) and told me he was in the Navy (F-14). I, without thought, and jokingly said "how is it going squid" Turns out he was a Nam vet (20 plus years of service) and he looked offened that I called him a "squid". I expected his response to call me a "flyboy" and we would both laugh. Based on his reaction I think it may have insulted him. I thanked him for his service to our country. He replied in kind, still I think I insulted him (was not my intention). Did I mess up?
