Car dealership service person: "So we couldn't recreate the problem. I think it might be the water bottle you had rolling around in the trunk."
Female customer: "But if I can feel the thumping in the brake pedal, it's not a 16 oz bottle of water...."
Car dealership service person: (Plops a big hook-shaped piece of metal on the counter) "We also found this up under your bumper. It's not from your vehicle....and it's really heavy."
Female customer: "Good god! You'd think I'd remember running over something like that. Well... maybe I wouldn't remember it last Satur.... nevermind."
Car dealership service person: "Want to keep it as a souvenir?"

Scene: City hall subway station
People are everywhere. train is taking forever.
A poor (based on his lack of clean clothes) Black man sees a man he knows. That man he knows just so happens to be sitting next to me. The poor black man comes over & squeezes between me & him. They strike up a conversation. It went a lil something like this.
Man 1 (dirty dude)
Man 2 (dirty dudes friend)
Man 1: "You know what? I saw a bunch of crackers upstairs fighting. They were all "yo suck man!" and "Fuck you, eat shit!"
Man 2 (dirty dudes friend): "Ha. fuckin white people"
-----A few seconds pass------
Man 1: "You know what? The other day i had a big rat down in the kitchen. It was huge, the size of a cat. The kids were all screaming."
Man 2: "Coulda been a muskrat"
Random woman: "or maybe a possum!"
Man 1: "No, it looked like a real big rat. like THIS long. What does a possum look like?"
Man 2: "oh it got a pointy nose and sharp teeth. you dont mess with possums. A rat, he'll run when he see's ya. but a possum, he gives you a look. its like hes saying "go on try me, i'll fuck your ass up""
Man 1: "Maybe it was a possum. it had some big teeth. and a pointy nose."
Random woman: "Yea i had one of those in my house the other day. damn thing came after me. I kicked it across my kitchen. gotta really put it to em."
Man 1: "damn... damn..man those possums"
