Hero worship

Today, my date walked out on me during our first encounter when he found out my prosthetic leg wasn’t the result of "fighting terrorists to protect democracy", but a splinter that went septic and caused gangrene. Apparently I’m no longer heroic enough for him. FML
I agree, your life sucks 1 040
You deserved it 134

Did he just assume that was the cause, or did you initially lie about it? In the first case, he's an asshole and you didn't lose anything. In the latter case, well, it's a bit of mixed bag, but in any event, lying won't get you anywhere good.

Just say it was an ISIS splinter, and then the heroic backstory will be credible.
