In ancient times
Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people
The druids

No one knew who they were
Or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock
...of Stonehenge

I just got off the phone with my buddy, Dan from California. He told me this story:

So, I went to Guitar Center yesterday. Dude, is it a prequisite to be a stoner or a retard to work at Guitar Center?

I had a 15% off coupon, and I bought a sweet music stand, a hook to hang my guitar, some picks and some strings.

I checked out and it came to $ 150.

I should note that the clerk had a shaved head, a fu manchu mustache ... that was braided, a barbell through his eyebrow and his lip, and a shaved head. But that's not all... dude had a tattoo of a dragon around his head and the tail went across his forehead.

I walked out of the store and I noticed he forgot to take the 15% off my $ 150.

I walked back in and said, "You forgot to give me 15% off."

"Duuuuuuuuuuude. You're right!."

He stared at my receipt.

"Ahhhhhhh... ummmmm.... wow."

He called this girl over and they stared at my receipt together.

She whispered to dragon-head, "I don't know how to do that kind of math."

They called over a third guy.

The third guy looked at it, thought for a while and said, "Why don't you just credit him back $ 60."

Dragon-head said, "Riiiiiiight."

I said, "That's close enough. Thanks."

I laughed so hard people came into my office to see if I was alright.

That is hilarious! I hope these guys stay working at Guitar Center where we can laugh about and sometimes profit from their opposed to being the ones drawing up my meds when I'm old and in a nursing home.

How's this for math: I bought a blackberry and it came with a package of accessories. Verizon sold me a 2.5 headset jack, but blackberry only supports a 3.5 jack. I tried to return the headset and she said, "I can accept your return, but I will need to charge you." Since the headset was part of a package, and a discount was applied to the package, she was going to charge me to return one item from it.
