Stalking A Patridge From A Pear Tree

leave a comment »

OK, I’m going to put my awesome awareness of pop culture on display. When I first read this sentence…

A Los Angeles court has granted Audrina Partridge a temporary restraining order from a man recently arrested outside the actress’ home.

My first thought was, “The hell? The Partridge Family show ended decades ago. Why is someone stalking the mom?”

Court records show a judge granted protection to Patridge, one of the stars of the MTV series “The Hills,” on Thursday.

Sigh.

Not Much Change At The Quickie Mart

leave a comment »

This story brings back memories of my time at the Quickie Mart.

Delaware State Police said a woman punched a gas station clerk in the face and held scissors to his throat in a dispute over how much money she had given him. The clerk at the Country Farms on West Newport Pike told police that a 53-year-old woman asked for $20 of gas, but only gave him a $1 bill. The clerk said the woman, certain that she had given him a $20 bill, screamed at him when he refused to give her $20.

Then police said the woman stormed behind the counter, punched the clerk in the face and held scissors to his throat. At that point, he gave the woman two $10 bills.

I didn’t get into any confrontations like this … well, at least not over money. Actually, most of my money fights came while working at the theater, but that’s another story for another time. The closest I came while at the Quickie Mart was with some bitch who paid for $10 of gas with a $20 and left with the $10 on the counter. We were working from a trailer while the actual store was getting remodled and because the door was about 10 feet from the register I didn’t notice the money on the counter until after she left. Being the model citizen I am was I just put it aside and waited for her return. She returned and I gave her the money back. I can’t remember what I said to her, but I know it wasn’t sarcastic or nasty. However, her response to me was, “Well that’s because you’re so slow.” This was her reason why she didn’t take her $10. The funniest part about this is that at most places I’ve worked I’ve ALWAYS been one of the fastest, if not the fastest, cashier to give change. Hey, I don’t want to deal with the customers any more than I have to.

Oh, and here’s the best part of the article I linked to:

As the woman drove away, police said she found the $20 bill in her purse and returned to the gas station. Police said she was arrested and charged with offensive touching and aggravated menacing.
