Orville and Terry are in a dispute over who inherits what, says Michelle. I don't have an Uncle Orville, or a cousin Terry, and I don't know Michelle other than that is the name on the credit card which she holds just out of my reach at the almost-conclusion of a sizable purchase. But she is getting a bit more than what she purchased, she is making damn sure that she gets my ear---at length--- while she tells me ALL about Orville, Terry, the land, the RV, who died and how, who paid for what and whose ex-wife is peeing in the punch bowl by hiring a lawyer and claiming that she still gets in on the action, even though Terry caught her doing-----

OK, the lady is a customer, a repeat customer, I don't want to make her mad, and I'm not all that busy at the moment, but JEEZ LOUISE THIS IS ABUSIVE! I need a drink!

Sounds like she just needs to vent.

If you were a bartender, the world would be your oyster: it's all right behind you!

At least it isn't Michelle's daughter Becky telling you all of this while holding Michelle's credit card just out of reach.

Even better is not having to put up with her verbal abuse when you tell her that the name on her ID doesn't match the name on the credit card and that you can't run the transaction even though she swears that she's an authorized user for it, the card that doesn't have her name on it, that is.

The best, however, is not having to endure Michelle's verbal abuse as she berates you for having the audacity to make her drive all the way down to the store to chew you out for not letting her daughter, Becky (whom you've never seen before in your life), who IS an authorized user for the account (but lost her card and has been using mom's while waiting for the new one to come in the mail), charge many thousands of dollars to a card that doesn't have her name on it.

Nope. I do not miss retail at all...

I like that song, Electron, but dang, "one more for the road" sure sounds like a relic of another age, back when nobody cared about DUI. Kind of like the concept of "Roadhouse"; a place on the edge of town that you drive to for the purpose of drinking.

Yeah, you're right, rok. I've been watching Perry Mason reruns from 1961 era lately, alcohol is the cure-all for everything. DUI? Back then it was just have a coffee and you'll be okay.

And have another smoke, why don't ya? Jeez, when they lit up the screen they didn't kid around. :D

In 1975 I was riding in a car doing 80 through a small down town after midnight, everyone totally blitzed, and we ran two red lights in succession. That got us stopped by a cop, who gave us a stern lecture about driving "when we've had a few too many"----no mention of the fact that we were all under any drinking age and in a dry county, so there WAS no legal drinking age----and he reminded us to watch those red lights, boys! He then followed us back to campus to make sure that was where we went, and that was that!
