Payback!

Yesterday at the video store where I have had past experience with slight anti-American sentiment, I rented yet another DVD of CSI. I was trying to get the correct change out and some quarters fell out that were still in my purse since coming back from America last week. My friend joked, "well, you can pay in dollars."

And the clerk behind the counter snipped: "we don't accept such an instable currency."

I chuckled, not at all offended, and not really thinking replied: "yeah, Saddam Hussein also insisted on getting paid in Euros towards the end, because he thought that would insult America."

The rest of my transaction passed in silence, and although I have to admit I am slightly embarassed that I essentially compared the video store clerk to Saddam Hussein, I am proud at my diss.

Did someone say Mongolian Cow Sour Yogurt Super Girl Contest?
Who loves American Idol more than I do? The answer is: everyone. I mean, what kind of boring name is American Idol anyway? Is there some reason they couldn't have come up with a better name, like Mongolian Cow ...

Just wanted you to have at least one valid comment. :)

Good thing we're in the age of DVDs; otherwise, the "tyrant" of a store clerk would have charged you for not rewinding.

What's up with the freakin acid comments?

You possess that timing thing! I am so jealous! I can NEVER have comebacks that spontaneous. I always have to think about it, then kick myself later for what I could have said. I have had a couple zingers, though, for situations that bothered me continuously.... It makes you feel so good!!!

You "kill" me with your come backs... I love them! I wish I had half the balls sometimes. Most of the time when I want to "come back" at someone... it is usually in my car thinking out loud... "I should have said this"...
