So I had my first K-cup road rage incident today. At the local store standing in the checkout line. Guy behind me wearing a tie dyed t-shirt taps me on the shoulder and points to my cart. (Taps me on the shoulder!)
“Hey! Don’t you know that those are bad for the environment?”
Me (in my best New Jersey accent):” Yeah? So what?”
Hippie : “Don’t you care about the environment?”
Me: “No.”
Liberal snowflake: “Really?”
Me: “Really.”
(At this point, a black lady three people behind in the line starts laughing.)
Hillary voter: “But what about the future of our children?” (Nods towards a small boy in his cart.)
Me: “You mean him? The kid picking his nose?”
Filthy tree hugger: “Eggbert! Stop that!” (Swats at kid’s hand.)
Black Lady: (Laughs really loud) “Eggbert? That’s a stupid name!”
Former Obama voter: (Glares back at lady). “And they’re sooooo expensive!”
Me: (Pointing to his arm) “So maybe I could get some swell tattoos like those with the money I save.”
Black Lady: “Oooooo!”
Liberal bastard: (Turns around to fully face black lady) “Hey! Mind your own business!”
Black Lady: “I know you ain’t talkin’ to me!” (Shakes head back and forth vigorously in a defiant manner.)
Eggbert: “Daddy! I’m bored!” (Shifts his position in the cart and sits on a carton of eggs which proceeds to drip onto floor.)
Prius driver: “Eggbert! Look at what you just did!”
Now the black lady, along with everybody in the adjacent lines are laughing. Manager comes over.
Manager: “Is there a problem?”
Black Lady: “Yeah! He named his kid Eggbert!”
Entire store erupts into raucous laughter. Manager calls for cleanup, then leads asshole away.
I go through checkout, leave store and put away groceries in truck. I notice Eggbert and dad loading his stuff into a Prius. He glares at me again. Instead of going over and choking the living shit out of him, I just point to my Ford F-150 truck. He turns purple.
I get home and put away my groceries, then make a cup of coffee. I’ve decided to name my K-cup coffee maker “Eggbert.”
