“Hey, aren’t you…” (fill in the blank with some off-the-wall description of my news monster identity).
Usually I’d simply say yes, or nod and move on with whomever I’m with. Then I heard this one the other night, and after a few beers I was ready to fight;
“Hey, you’re that guy who screwed the Mayor!”
Granted i had heard this one numerous times, and usually just ignored it. but this time I was tipsy after a few beers, and apparently my confidence was sky high.
I turned around, walked up to the twenty-something blonde boy laughing about his comment, and said;
“Do you really think that is an appropriate way to start a conversation with a complete stranger?”
“Oh, I know you. I know you because I read about you online and saw you on TV”
“That’s not knowing me. Again, do you think that was an appropriate comment to make? Because it wasn’t, and if you have any self respect, you won’t act like that in public because it’s childish and all YOU are doing is making a fool of yourself. So when you decide to grow up and act like someone who can legally enter this bar, then try talking to me again. Until then, PISS OFF!”
Seriously though, am I right? If you have any self respect, you wouldn’t act like that in public, right? It’s not going to embarrass me, it just makes them look like a fool.
Then he decided to apologize, and tell me he thought I was hot.
Great recovery, buddy. Try again.
Funny stuff maynard.
