The $2.00 CD Gambit
See more » Secondhand Music
Standing on the store's porch smoking a cigarette I watched a young man start picking up litter in our parking lot. A litter fetishistic or someone almost dementedly annoyed by scattered wastage?
He even picked up a dozen cigarette butts. After a couple of minutes he tossed his gatherings into the garbage can.
Approaching me he asked my name. I told him.
Addressing me as "Richie" - truncating or modifying my name is impermissible unless I'm in love with you - he invited me to sell him a CD for $2.00.
I told him we weren't open. (Having the most damnable sleeping habits I get there three or four hours before opening.)
He pointed out that he'd picked up trash in my lot.
"Uh. Huh," I replied.
The young man stalked off with a disgusted swagger.
At first I thought this was a novel approach until I remembered that winos do the like all the time.Warning: include(/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/secondhand_music/the_200_cd_gambit.php on line 69 Warning: include(): Failed opening '/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/secondhand_music/the_200_cd_gambit.php on line 69
