Come to think of it, if I was going to set up an all-nanny Seal Team Six, Mary Poppins would be leading it.

Navy Seal? Poor choice. They get
murdered at gun ranges

Diogenes: When I think "helicopter parent" I rarely think "Black Hawk."


You know, I hate having to clean tomato soup off my monitor, you magnificent bastard.

My name is Mike Partlow and I am very interested in this job. I have a lot of experience driving under dangerous conditions and guarantee your daughter will arrive safely at home every day.

Holy crap, now I'm stuck on that site.  Well, there go the next 30 minutes of work.


You're not the only one.
/I've seen people troll those Nigerian prince scammers in a similar way to this, but this is just taking it to another level haha.

My parents couldn't afford a Navy Seal.
I had some sad old seal retired from SeaWorld that had diarrhea a lot and mostly just slept.....

This doesn't strike me as the greatest idea.

I think this is a great idea just for giving the public reasons to look at veterans as exceptionally well-qualified for some jobs (although maybe not this one). That's step in the right direction, IMO.

Women can't be Navy SEALS.

I say pay more for the massad nannies.  They also understand arabic and know when to leave a bad area.

Did we read the article?  An (ex) navy seal has started a business where he has hired women with prior military service to act as nannies.  I believe the article was more about and entrepeneur helping out women vets needing employment rather than hiring military trained assassins to care for your kids.

 I can understand the trepidation of hiring a vet but keep in mind, a majority of military people are not trained killers but instead fill positions like cooks, paper pushers and clerks, electricians, and medical aids.  Only a small percentage of the military engage in field combat, and until recently, far fewer still were women.

On the other hand, you do hire a woman vet, you are getting someone who understands discipline and responsibility.

Claims to be a Navy Seal? Let's run his name past Don Shipley firtst.
If he is legit, good to go.
If not, stand by to stand by.

I'm not sure I want anyone who is experienced at driving under dangerous conditions. I'd prefer someone who is experienced at driving on the street.

fusillade762: MrEricSir: GreenAdder: Vodka Zombie: The Stealth Hippopotamus: I've seen this movie.

The one with Vin Diesel?

Or, is it the one with Dwayne Johnson?

Or, Steven Segal?

Wasn't there a Hulk Hogan one, too?

I was thinking the one with Denzel Washington.

Didn't Jackie Chan do one, too?


And Clint Eastwood?

megalynn44: Man. The economy really is in the shiatter if the only work a former Navy Seal can find is Nannying.


It isn't seals doing the work. He just finds regular Navy chicks.

So instead of Mary Poppins floating in with an umbrella. she'll be parachuting in.

uncleacid: But can she balance a ball on her nose?


That doesn't go over well in bars - I had a buddy that got drunk and spouted that one time at Rick's.

Depending on the situation, he'd also sing the Marine's Hymn to the tune of "Darling Clementine" or give the ever popular "the horse you never rode" introductory speech. He had something stimulating for just about everyone.

I think this is great. Very creative use of a talent pool.

I had a different buddy that was a SF delta from 5th, was doing graphic arts and tired of it, he started an ambulance service for rich people with worries about security. All the guys were retired deltas and bravos. The only paramedics you'd ever see in suits with dark glasses and packing knives and sidearms.

Agreed.  Although, to be fair, i actually like the idea.  They WOULD be able to assess a dangerous situation a lot more quickly than most people.  (As in, those aren't firecrackers, honey, let's go this way instead.)
