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.
