Sorry op if guy took offense. I know a few amputees that would actually laugh and agree if you said that to them. People should stop getting offended so easily.

You gotta be careful what you say around veterans. Someone made a joke with my dad, I don't remember what is was, but something in the joke gave him a flashback that he had nightmares about for a week after. The person didn't know it would give him a flashback but things happen. Make sure to choose your words carefully.

I think #4 meant after OP's conversation with the veteran. Because if he was in the veteran's place, he wouldn't let OP go without losing a leg or an arm apparently.

I wonder that all the time as well. The way it's put, it sounds like it's worth a hell of a lot of money. Like just going to an open house and say "hmm, how about I give you my left arm, my right leg, and my big toe?" SOLD

I hope he was understanding. It's a really common idiom and as I'm assuming your small talk with him was kind he should have understood that you weren't making a jab at his unfortunate situation. People need to stop getting offended so easily nowadays and realize not everything said is a word against them. Accidents happen OP.
