I Like Records 37

A regular, a down-on-his-lucker came in to sell some cd’s and dvd’s. He does this from time to time and while the titles are usually crap, we always manage to buy some of it. We had just made a deal and Matt went up to the office to get money from petty cash. While we were waiting for Matt, there was the requisite uncomfortable silence, which I tried to fill with pointless small talk.

Me- Well…you had a lot of dvd’s today.

Guy-…Yeah…There’s a guy I know and he gives me a lot of dvd’s… that he don’t want no more.

Me-…yeah…that’s cool…

Guy-…Yeah…he’s got a lot of pornos too.

Me-……….oh…….that’s good…

Guy-Hey, I’m not gay or nothin’

Me-…I didn’t say you were gay…and I…I don’t give a shit what you do.

Guy-Yeah but I ain’t…we don’t watch ‘em together or nothin’

[SILENCE]

Me-….uh….yeah…it sure is fuckin’ hot out there today….

Guy-I’m not gay

[SILENCE]

And after what seemed like hours but was merely a couple of minutes, Matt finally showed up gave him his money and he left.
