Dude, where's my car

Got my car back. The bastards at Walgreens lied to me. My dad was really funny when we went to get it towed. We just didn't belong there.. my dad drove his car, a jaguar, and he looked like he just got off the golf course. While we are waiting for the tow truck to get there he decides we should go into the Walgreens and wait. He took one step in the Walgreens, looks around, and then turns to my brother and me, says, "this was a mistake" and walks right back out the door. I still don't really understand what he was thinking at the time.

Hey, I know what the guy who took a chance and helped you out feels like. I once picked up a guy on the side of US20 coming back from Dubuque who looked nice, and in the end was really nice, but was also a member of the Aryan(sp?) Brotherhood as well as Hell's angels (I saw tattoos to back up both). It turned out that he had just gotten out of jail for skipping out on prison time and was picked up at his daughters funeral by the police. Interesting guy...but those that help are also taking the chance, so be grateful that the guy didn't give you money like I did to my hitchhiker friend...also, since you are going to be a lawyer soon I would advise you (for what it's worth) to move away from terms like Black People and try to use more terms like "have-nots" or perhaps even "economically depressed", but wait, you are going to be a tax lawyer right? so that means that you can just call them "not my client"...unless you are going to fight against the greatest villain that the african american community has seen in a long time, this of course being "Check in to Cash".
Anyway...enough shit. Good to hear that your car is alright and good to hear that you are alright. Take care of yourself and be sure to get someone to check under the hood.

The only reason I would stoop to using terms like "Black People" was to emphasize just how much I stood out due to my skin color alone. It was apparent to everyone around me that I didn't belong there... and it wasn't my clothes. I was wearing a non-descript white T-shirt and old wornout shoes at the time. If I had a darker complexion, then I really don't think I would have been as much of a target as I obviously was.

Didn't mean to be a prick...it was just my best attempt at being sarcastic. Trust me when it comes to being politically correct I know as much as that guy on Hogan's Heroes, "I know nothzing!"
Sorry to be a prick, if I indeed was. Take care.
