Only poke the snake if you know it’s not poisonous

| April 12, 2013

“Well I’m sorry, ma’am, I didn’t mean a thing by it. It don’t work, I just want my money back.”

By this time a manager had come over to intervene, and I was regaining double-eyebrow status. I paid for my stuff and gratefully noticed a very relaxed posture in the dominant right hand of the clerk as she handed me change. I passed George on the way out.

“Approach with caution.”

“Duly noted. And I don’t want to know why.”

“It wasn’t me.”

“I’d like to believe that, so I will.”

“You’re making my eyebrow disappear.”

“It always comes back. That’s how we know it’s safe.”

“Screw you.”

“You don’t mean it, I can still see two eyebrows.”

    I started reading your posts a few days ago and it has become just about the only thing that makes me smile lately, other than my trucker husbands daily call. Thanks, these are great stories!
