Back in the Saddle Again; The Next Generation.

.... Just finished my first official shift back at the Chevron. Ran into six ex-students from the Churchill days and pissed off one of the local bums. It was a good day.
.
..... Oh, and my musical neighbors have given up the Michael Jackson vigil. They're playing 70's disco today. Not sure which is worse.
.
.... And finally - the new matress ROCKS! I've been sleeping incredibly well and my back is completely without pain. It's amazing the difference a good matress makes. Love it!

If your neighbors play "Disco Inferno" more than once a day, let me know, and you can come hang out at my place for a while.

Whuh - sorry, that just sent a shiver down my spine.
I'll let you know.

I'm sorry to hear you're having back pain. I hope the new matress continues to be helpful.

I like disco, but probably not if it is blasting repeatedly throughout the day...and night.

Burn, baby, burn.

Just curious. What did you do to piss off a local bum? Oh, and was the ex-student reunion a positive experience? Did they turn out the "the way you expected them"?

I pissed off the bum buy telling him that he was not allowed to bother our customers. He'd been riding his bike through our parking lot on and off all evening, hitting up customers for money, and he choose this time to do it right in front of the front doors. I think he thought I was the new guy and wouldn't know better. So he comes in after I tell him to leave and starts giving me a bad time about how I embarassed him and how that was a friend of his. I start arguing with him, asking him about all the other people he was bothering before, which he just ignores and continues bugging me about embarassing him in front of his friend. Not wanting to call him a lying sack of $&#* in front of the real customers, I just said ok, whatever, goodbye, leave the property. He sat out front during the downpour and then left right after the rain let up.
As for the students, seeing them was really nice. First of all, that they would remember me after 10 years is a compliment. One of the girls told me that her little brother said I was his favorite teacher, that's always nice to hear. As far as how they turned out, we didn't get into any serious conversations, but they all looked like they were doing well.

Hello Max. Thanks for taking the time to type up the clarification summary. Wow, a bum with a bike, you do seem to have a better class of bums that can afford a bike (assuming it wasn't stolen). Just be careful, I'm sure there are as many crazies in Utah as in NYC. Well, I'm sure there are more here in NYC, but I think you get the picture.

I probably wouldn't remember my students from ten years ago.

Thanks again for the clarification.

Jannx - no problem. We've got some serious crazies here in Utah, but I'm sure not as many as in NYC. But I don't think bike-guy is dangerous, just arrogant.
