"Got any copies of Friday Night Lights to rent?"
"No, we're all out."
"Got any for sale for ten bucks?"
"They're twenty-one dollars."
"If I bought one, and it turned out to be...'damaged', could I exchange it for a different movie, or would I have to...?"
"The same movie."
*20 seconds later*
"Any returns yet?"
---A persistent yet completely transparent customer at Blockbuster, and an apparently unperterbable clerk.
Don't TELL the clerk you're just going to buy something, use it once, and then bring it right back, because then they'll know that's what you're up to.
Drunken Mishaps, Perhaps?

Suit 1: Women... I don't know why we put up with them.

Suit 2: I do. Without that, we'd hunt them with dogs.
I wanted to say, "But you already are."

"I read this thing where the gas companies did some "research" and their scientists say that instead of ruining our atmosphere, all the Carbon dioxide we're releasing by burning fossil fuels will create a Greening Effect and transform earth into a fertile paradise. Even the deserts and the arctic will be green and covered with flowers."

"Oh, well, That makes sense."

-My roomate, explaining why some people don't "believe in" global warming, and someone listening to her overwhelmed with disgust. In a Sheri's restuarant in Tacoma, WA at midnight.

I hate it when people claim not to "believe in" things that don't require their faith, as though by making that claim they could just will it all to be untrue. I defeat you, Global Warming, with the powers of my MIND!
