The King Of Annoying

I went to the grocery store to buy some ham for a sandwich, and on my way to the checkout I ran into this kid from the Math Club who I can't stand. I tried to get away, but he followed me to the only open checkout. He stood in line behind me, chatting happily, until he realized that he had forgotten something. He ran off, promising to be right back.

I thought about abandoning the ham and bolting. I asked myself, "am I willing to go hungry tonight to avoid talking to this guy again?" I considered this for a minute, but then I realized that I do have bread and mustard at home. Was I willing to eat just a mustard sandwich for dinner to avoid talking to this guy? I was.

You hear that, Captain Annoying? I ate bread and mustard for dinner, just so I wouldn't have to talk to you for another minute. AND IT WASN'T EVEN BRAND NAME MUSTARD. That's how annoying you are.

It wasn't me!
I don't forget things once I've gone to the checkout.

I don't think I would abandon ham to avoid you. Gum, maybe. Generic brand canned beans, probably.

You know you love me.
If I was at your local supermarket you'd probably come down and buy ham you DIDN'T need to come talk to me bashfully in line.

If you knew how to be bashful that is of course.

I am sort of surprised that this entry isn't about me.
