I've never seen a soldier

get on a plane--

"Hey, I'm in the Army."

"F*** you. I have a gun."

They're always, "Oh, yes sir.

Thank you very much ma'am."

It's like having an extra flight attendant.

They help everybody put their sh*t up.

They're awesome.

And every time that I see a

soldier on a plane, I always think,

You know what,

I should give him my seat.

It would be the right thing to do.

It would be easy to do and it

would mean a lot to him.

I could go up to him, "Hey, Son."

I get to call him, "Son."

"Hey, son, go ahead

and take my seat."

Because I'm in first class, why,

for being a professional a**hole.

I'm in first class because I talk

about babies with big d*cks.

That's what got me my seat.

This guy is giving his life

for the country, he thinks,

and so he has to sit--

But that's good enough.

That's good enough,

the fact that he thinks it.

I'm serious.

He's f***ing told by everybody

in his life system

that that's a great thing

to do and he's doing it.

And it's scary but he's doing it.

And he's sitting in this shitty seat

and I should trade with him.

I never have.

Let me make that clear.

I've never done it once.

I've had so many opportunities.

I never even really,

seriously came close.

And here's the worst part.

I still just enjoy the fantasy

for myself to enjoy.

I was actually proud of myself

for having thought of it.

I was proud.

Ah, I am such a sweet man.

That is so nice of me

to think of that and then

totally never do it.

At least you should be good

just to the people--

Just turn a good face to the

people that you see in life.

I don't do that either

because when I get in the

elevator in my building--

That's my first contact

with human beings after

being home and just being

disgusting for hours.
