I hate me, 832,444

Walking our dog Lucy (aka, Lady Sniff) a few weeks ago through town. She’s a cute little dog and sometimes people ask to pet her, it usually goes well. This guy comes up, mid 30’s/sunglasses/backwards baseball cap asks to pet her. He does and then:

that’s a cute dog…I got a big dog… pit bull mix…

…oh that’s cool

…yeah…my dog could totally eat your dog

…why?

…I dunno…but he totally could

ok…uh…thanks for the warning

…yeah…nice dog

It was weird because the guy genuinely seemed to like Lucy but his conversation skills were so wrongheaded. It’s like he didn’t have the language and had to resort to “bro-speak”. Or it could be that the Westminster Kennel Club has changed their criteria for judging dogs and now “could totally eat” is part of the competition.
