Once Again, I Get Confused For a Garbage Can


Some of the long-time readers might remember Dude, let's throw something at this loser, where I discussed my various run-ins with schmucks throwing crap at me from their automobiles.

Last night, it happened YET AGAIN.

And wouldn't you know it, I got nailed by... an empty Gatorade bottle. At least the bottle was empty and plastic, but as usual, the passersby's aim was true, and the fucking bottle bounced right off my head.

And, as usual, it was probably your typical punk-ass teenager, showing off how cool he is to his friends. Somehow, I can't fathom how throwing shit at people makes you cool, but then again, if anybody is the antithesis of cool, it would be me.

(And lest you think it's just teens and 20-somethings that do this, I had a guy yell at me from a truck last month, and a quick glance of his salt-and-pepper beard led me to believe he had to be in at least his mid-30s, if not older. Aren't you supposed to, oh, I don't know, mature with age?)

This has happened so many times over the last 10 years that I really don't even get pissed off about it anymore. If you're on a sidewalk near a busy street, you're an easy target, fair or not. Sadly, I come to expect SOMETHING every time I set out to go someplace by foot. And, 60% of the time, I'm usually not disappointed.

However, that doesn't mean I'm going to be a passive person. If someone gets out of their car (which, thankfully, hasn't happened yet, but I guess it's bound to) and tries something, I've got a small wood baseball bat, and I will NOT be afraid to use it if I have to. I really hope it doesn't come to that, but you never know with dumbasses these days.

If last Friday's playtime with my Adult Friend was the perfect way to start a weekend, last night's incident was the exact opposite.

Maybe I simply need a helmet.

Fuck the helmet baby, you need a gun. It's a great way to diffuse a situation! Or carry around an balloon filled with indelible ink. Throw it at THEM and then run like hell! LOL

Somehow, I don't think a gun would solve any problems. It'd probably make them worse. However, it would sure as hell get some attention.

I do like the suggestion. I always like good suggestions from hot women. And thanks for visiting, you're always welcome into my warped world.

Hey, man, thanks for commenting on our blog. Are you challenging my dorkdom?

About being hit by things... I a tall, in shape guy, and I look mean as hell most of the time, which is very odd considering I am really just a goofy, geeky, dork, but several years ago, I was running with a friend. We were on the sidewalk of a highway. A car went by with a bunch of young kids in it, and WHAM!!! a quarter popped me right on my shirtless right pec about an inch above the nipple. Holy Fuck it hurt. I had a dead president's face branded to my flesh for about 2 hours.

Not challening your dorkdom... merely offering a comparsion of the dorkdom I possess. I am a guy who can put The Goonies on mute and recite all the dialogue, has spent untold hundreds of dollars trying to find every Mick Foley match known to man, and sadly knows all the stats of the 1988 Philadelphia Phillies.

And I haven't been nailed with coins yet, but that'd be about the only thing. However, I can claim, amongst other items, french fry boxes, a printer cartridge, and a glass beer bottle all fired in my general direction. And the thing is, I can look pretty mean too when I want to, and yet it doesn't matter.
