Los Angeles Times shills are bastards

I went to the supermarket after work today*, as one does, and inside the store a smiling Greasoid with a Beautiful Female Assistant stopped me and said, "I'd like to give you ten dollars!"

I was suspicious but took the store card he shoved into my hands while twinkling brightly. He then started into his pitch - he hadn't previously disclosed that there was an upcoming pitch - which was to sell me the Sunday Orange County edition of the Los Angeles Sunday Times.

I told him I already got the Sunday edition. (I get four days of the Los Angeles Times in print.)

 "Do I need to give the card back?" I asked, twinkling myself, lightheartedly, in an "Oh, You!" way, little suspecting.

"Oh, sorry, oh so sorry, " he and his Beautiful Female Assistant both said, shaking their heads.

I walked off.

"Hey!" he screamed after me. "I DO need the card back!"

I handed it back while they both muttered "So sorry, so sorry," under their breaths.

Next time, Los Angeles fucking Times, if your shills hand me plastic worth ten bucks without disclosing the strings, then attempt to detain me and eventually demand the return of the card, I'll call the goddamn police. Be honest, you complete bastards.


*Vons, in San Juan Capistrano, 06/21/2011, if that helps LA Times to find the perpetrators and deal with them.

Hi Sis

I would have replied to you Tweet, but haven't got an account as I can't see any possible use for one (is that a contradiction?). Came as a shock to see you tweeting as it isn't too long ago that you were extolling the virtues of a "simple" mobile phone that on made and received calls, had no apps and didn't play music. So what have you got now, don't say a Blackberry, you are going to end up looking like an exec, next you will tell us you are dressing in "power" suits!!!!
