Man, you know, I probably shouldn't have been so gleeful at this moment, but I really couldn't help myself. I went to Barnes and Nobles here while I am in town to get the best journal in the world (which I am sure will be presented here later) and got a kick out of these two people as I was walking in. The guy had the kind of slick comb over that Zack from Saved By the Bell used to sport, real broad shoulders, a white turtleneck sweater. The woman had a latte, big heels, big hair, and big lipstick. Towncenter stereotype was going on here. When I was walking in, I saw them walking around the car, trying every door with very puzzled looks on their faces.
"All I did was wash it yesterday" the woman said. Washed the car in 3 degree weather? Impressive. Anyway, apparently the security system malfunctioned, and wouldnt let them in their car. When we walked out of the store 30 minutes later, they were in the lobby making phone calls. I know I shouldn't be so smug, but c'mon, this 30,000 dollar car was to smart for itself and wouldn't open. My little Scion was happily opening its door to us, while the other guy, much more majestic and expensive, was a little confused, just like its owners. I am sure they ended up having to get it towed. A bit of redemption for all of us... Hah. C'mon, you know its a little satisfying.
