The waitress is looking for a screwdriver. A Phillips screwdriver in particular. Thankfully, there is a group of what can only be described as “good ol’ boys” sitting behind me. One of them gets up because he has a screwdriver in the truck.
The day has been saved.
Now one of them is regaling the group with a horrifying story of a seventeen year old “punk” who shot and killed a Marine. Apparently, when the boy was questioned he had a “shit-eating grin,” and then he confessed. The boy’s parents were charged as accessories to the crime. There is something about a car that was stolen. This car is now “sitting on my lot.”
These guys are now discussing the price of holding a car in impound. Apparently, it costs $111 to hookup to a car and only $18 per day. If you are overcharged you have to pay the bill then turn in the impound lot that overcharged.
Now, the story is starting over and his friends are loudly telling him to “shut the hell up.” They don’t remember this incident and I don’t think they are buying his story.
Now theyare discussing John and Adam Walsh. This is proving to be a pretty interesting conversation.
He got sidetracked. He wants to talk about Dan Brown books now. This is apparently the most literary conversation these guys have.
Wait for it…. He just said “I shit you not.”
My day has been made.
PS: forgot to post this back in August when it was relevant. So, now it’s just a hilarious memory from Oklahoma.
