Born to be Wild

Me: "I need a weed whacker."
Friend: "It's called a string trimmer."
Me: "I don't wish to trim strings. I wish to whack weeds. Very much."
Friend: "String trimmer."
Me: "WHY?
Friend: "Dunno."
Me: "Huh."

Me: "Hi, I was wondering if you have the Black & Decker 18V cordless GelMax String Trimmer in stock?"
Home Depot Clerk: "A WHAT?"
Me: "A Black & Decker 18V weed whacker."
Home Depot Clerk: "Oh sure."
Me: "What's a string trimmer?"
Home Depot Clerk: "No idea.
Me: "Huh."

Whoever you are, I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship...
