Bad Ass

Genre: Adult
90 min

The story begins

right here on this bus.

Line 144.

The same route I took every day.

- Yee-ha!

- But this day was different.

Something was about to happen

that would change my life forever.

First, let me tell you how things

were... before all this.

Didn't have all that much

growing up.

Just me... mom... dad...

...and 60 acres of farmland.

I lived a simple life.

But sometimes, the simplest things

are the best things.

Like going undefeated my senior year

and winning the state championship

off my corner route in the end zone.

Or falling in love with Lindsay,

the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.

Can't you just tell them

that you changed your mind?

I can't do that, baby.

I already enlisted.

Hey... I promise it'll be real quick.

I'm gonna go in there, I'm gonna take

care of business and I'll be right back.

You have my word.


I promise.

Then suddenly,

things weren't so simple anymore.

I headed off to Vietnam

to fight for my country.

I spent seven years there,

six of them in the jungle...

...and one year in a POWcamp.

Is that all you got, pendejos?

Probably would have

stayed longer, too...

Man down!

if I hadn't gotten shot.

But throughout it all,

the only thing that kept me going

was knowing that I was

gonna see Lindsay again.

Mommy, I'm hungry.

Mommy, can you make us lunch?

I figured I'd apply

to the police academy.

It made sense

with my military experience.

I felt lost.

Didn't know where I fit in anymore.

So what type of business

experience do you have?

Well... not much experience,

really, to be honest.

Since I graduated high school,

I've been in active combat duty

serving my country.

That really took up most of my time.

We're really in the market

for a college graduate.

You didn't happen to take

advantage of the GI Bill?

Actually, I have just been informed

the position was filled.

I soon realized that no one

was willing to give me a chance.

I had to create

an opportunity for myself.

Thank you, sir, I appreciate

your business. God bless.

- How are you, sir?

- Good, good.

What can I get for you? One?

All right. Ketchup? Mustard?

Beautiful day, huh?

All right. There we go.

Here's your change, sir.

God bless you. Have a nice day.

While I was creating

that opportunity... somehow slipped away from me.

One, two, three, go!

But life has a way of kicking you

in the ass every once in a while.

And on this day,

it kicked me pretty hard.


Hey, old man, you mind moving?

We gotta sit together.

Hey! Old f***er!

You deaf? I'm talking to you.

Move that geriatric ass

before I kick it.

How about you

just leave me alone?


You believe this guy?

You got balls, old man.

That's respectable.

But now you're wasting my time,

so why don't you get

the f*** out of my seat?

You crazy f***ing spear chucker.

There's two seats in back.

Take 'em. But leave him alone.

Are you f***ing kidding me?

Stand up, a**hole.

I don't want any trouble.

Leave me alone.

I can kick your ass while you're sitting

down or while you're standing up.

It's your call.

- F*** his sh*t up, Raymond!

- Yeah.

I told you I didn't wanna fight.

I f***ing told you!

Since that day,

nothing's been the same.

Holy sh*t.

That's awesome!

Man, this old guy's bad ass.

Miller, Steve-O, come over here.

Come take a look at this.

He's a senior citizen,

he's been given the name "Bad Ass"

and he's a huge hit on the Web

right now. He gives people hope.

There's even a T-shirt

with his face on it.

All of a sudden,

people started caring about me.

I started fitting in again.
