I can't believe some people folks! I had to go down to the unemployment office this morning to file a claim (don't worry about me, i'm being called back in about a month) , and I was seated in the back against the wall waiting for my number to be called. I was #98 and they were currently serving #93, so I got up to move to another seat to be closer to the desk so they would see me clearly stand up when my # was called. I had to walk down another row of seats to get to my desired chair, and I walked past this woman who was seated on the end of the row, and as I passed her she said to me in a very smart ass way "Damn you could have said excuse me!", I replied very politly " I'm sorry." and was prepared to forget about it. Then I heard her say under her breath "Asshole." The notion of forgetting went out the window at that moment and I said "Excuse me?" then she said "You heard me!". I says to her "Listen, first off I had a good three inch clearance of you when I came by, so it's not like were in a movie theater and I had to climb over your legs to get by you, and that doesn't warrant an 'excuse me' IMO, and second of all you don't know me well enough to call me an asshole, most people know me for at least a minuet before determining that i'm an asshole!" You know, just to try and defuse the situation with some humor. She said "Whatever, just be careful next time.", I finally just said "Fine, have a nice day." in a semi sarcastic manner. Now, i'm the most courteous guy in the world, but I truly believe that an 'Excuse me' was not needed in this situation as it took no effort on my part to get by her. She didn't even move her legs at all! She was just looking for trouble wherever she could find it I think. Still, looking back on it, it was all pretty funny to me. I watch too much Curb your Enthusiasm folks!
