If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

and after 3 days, he is risen!

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Im for veeb all the way...If I want fake conversation Ill fork over twenty bucks and buy a stripper some koolaid pretending to be a drink. Maybe a Grant and get a couple feels inOtherwise leave me the hell alone. I will screw with you right backTake the gal a few weeks ago that asked for my ID with a credit card. Has the company name on it and told her to look at it. Still stood there like a deer in headlights waiting to see my DL. After gazing at it for a few seconds she had the gall to say thank you"Did the names match up there, toots?"(no comment)"Betsha dont get many folks in here with the last name Mechanical Inc, huh?"(mean look)"Kids name is Tooling.... he gets beat up every day at school"(giggle from co-worker)"Wifes name is Industrial.... you really dont wanna screw with her"A few days later the same gal tried to get revenge by throwing my change down on the counter after I handed her the cash..."Whats the scoop?.....I handed you the money, why cant you do the same?""Have a nice day"".....oh....well then.....I forgot, I need one of those lighters there"(bitch takes money from counter and places change back on it)"Oops.... better give me a package of this gum here"(takes money and places change back on counter)"Yeah.... better gimme....."(goes on until not enough change is on counter to purchase item)"I need forty three cents"(Beans pulls out pocket of change and tosses each coin on counter individually)"And you have a good day as well, toots"I do that each and everytime someone puts my change on the counter.... I suggest everyone else do the sameOh, and as far as dealing with overly nice burrito slingers, just pretend youre deaf and make up some fancy sign language. It works quite well.Gets a little awkward when they actually know sign language though....In other news, I guess stratty is still processing the info. Hope I didnt scare him off. I was just getting to the part about picking the right spot in tent city. Nothings better than the smell of frying eggs on the sidewalk in the morningOh, and I thought of shake today when I forked over a Ben for some new sunglasses. Matte black farersPICS TO COME!

Also... Andre, Cooks, or Arbor Mist?And the room requests was sweet in a weird way...I didnt even have to know the name it was booked under.....
Anything will do as long as it has alcohol. And while I think you're joking about my/our room, I wouldn't completely rule it out. Don't cancel our reservation or change the ocean view. The Mrs wouldn't be pleased. Hah
never book it through a third party like the one that captain kirk barks for.
Priceline, but you knew that. Also, your turn of phrase made me chuckle.
shake i have that same fear about dating a girl from school. but whatever man, if you're a jet you're a jet all the way. i say go for it.
I hope you use the Jet line in real life. That would be sweet.
B) ha, I had the same thought. No way he means the baseball player, right? I think there's also a motorcycle dude by that name? Does he mean the "sunglasses at night" guy? Does he say something about back pain in that song? Does he have another song I don't know? What's a horse shoe? What does a horse shoe do? Are there such things as horse socks? Is anybody listening to me?
Excellent. You made the joke I was going to make only way better. Plus you threw in the Brewer, who I forgot
Did you get her number?(That's what we say when someone mentions a female in here, right?)
Nice
I'm confused, did you get chips or what?

You obviously don't know what it's like to be an introvert.
That's just shyness. Being an introvert has little to do with fear/dislike of social interactions. It's more about how you recharge at the end of the day. So you may be an introvert, but not wanting to talk to a burrito specialist is not why. SEMANTICS.Oh, hi everyone. This rotaton's a bitch (internal medicine). 6am-8pm during the week, 6am-noon weekends. Approximately. But I'm saving allllll the animals.

VB: I'm introverted.Brv: Have you ever considered not being that?
I disagree. He is being thrust into the situation either way. So he might as well tweak the situation so that he isn't the one forced to talk. His short answers are producing awkwardness in both parties; an awkwardness that he wants to avoid.

I was gonna say "don't do it shake", but then my dude essay made his case and changed my mind. Do it, Shake. Do it.
stop calling her "it", you guys. It's rude. Do her, Shake. Do her.

beans still being alive is always going to be more amazing than anything else, even if I were to get laid again. beans still alive? more amazing.

yeah what an idiot that vb is on brain stuff!
Nice
glad you quoted that. didn't notice it at first. and it was good!oh and guys, come on. I'm not going to ask this girl out. don't be ridiculous. I've thought way more girls were flirting with me way harder before that weren't at all, so I'm sure this is yet another missread. no need to make it weird around yet another female at work. plus I don't have time with all the grass I need to cut.

Just knowing this is possibly because of you makes me smile. You're like a redneck James Bond or something.

You stick the animals, you. The point is that I much prefer to be left alone with my internal thoughts, and that's really why I go to eat lunch alone. I'm not particularly shy. I don't dislike social interactions. I dislike fake social interactions. I don't know this person. They are not talking to me because they are interested in my day, they are talking to me because someone told to, because they thought I would like that. I don't. It gets worse, too. While you are sitting down eating your burrito, engrossed in the internet on your phone, some guy comes by and interrupts you. "Hey man, everything goin ok here?". It happens every ten minutes or so, meaning that often I am asked this 2-3 times while I am there. I once was even tapped on the shoulder so that they could ask me this.

No I was creating that awkwardness hoping that they would want to avoid it and stop asking me questions. They don't care. But it really isn't their fault, it's the management's fault for encouraging this. I think a letter to the management may be in order.

I feel like this is missing some qualifying words, like "with a woman", "consensual", "without paying for it" etc... in order to have more merit.I for one am never surprised at Beans ability to escape harm with his track record.

honestly that does sound pretty terrible. not sure which I'd prefer, the invasive niceness of that place or the hurried pace of chipotle. never feel like I have enough time to decide what I want there.

Wait a minute, I totall agree with the annoyance over being asked continually if you're "doing ok". Especially in the kind of restaurant that doesn't have wait service. I too prefer to be left to myself. If I'm out to lunch on my own there's usually a reason for it.As far as the "fake" niceness...more customers would be turned off if the employees said nothing at all and didn't appear to be friendly while putting together their burritos than what you're complaining about. And it is amazing how many lonely people in the world live for some stranger making conversation with them. I've had customers in the past that came in to use our services not because they really needed it but because they were lonely.

I mean, I agree with this, but if the employees are being trained to be friendly, they should also be trained to recognize the people who aren't interested.

You're right of course but you have to remember that we're talking about minimum wage burritista's here. In a nicer restaurant, a good waiter/waitress knows what parties to hover over and which ones to only check in with occasionally. But again, we're talking about people that make $8 bucks an hour to wrap meat in an tortilla for a living here.

You can be nice without forcing small-talk. I have never felt that the people at chipotle were rude or not nice. They put my lettuce on there with a smile, and happily ask me what kind of salsa I want (the hot one btw). They don't need to ask me about the details of my life in order to be nice. They aren't there to counsel lonely people, they are there to prepare mexican food. But also, what DJ said. The reason they don't back off when you don't engage them I think is because they are being watched and don't want to be reprimanded for not being nice enough.It's like they won't have enough pieces of flair.
