You're the Marine who wasn't supposed to live with your mother, but nevertheless decided to start living there, off the lease. She was a nice woman who kept a tidy apartment; you were a jerk who destroyed it. You left cigarette butts everywhere, called little Mexican kids "beaners," blocked the driveway, and walked around naked with the drapes open. And then you called the landlord a faggot when he wondered why you hadn't paid your rent, drunkenly whining that you served in Afghanistan and thus didn't need to pay rent. You embarrass your fellow Marines and those who gave their lives so you could be a deadbeat dipshit.
