I love your beverages. In fact, I think it is the best in downtown, hands down. I knew when I first starting frequenting your establishment that I felt intimidated, and out of place. Our first encounter had to do with your T-shirt, and your comment about how "fat" people are rich. I said, "whoa." You

You are a dick. It rhymes with dick, in fact, it sort of is dick-like. There is nothing that you say that I find to be remotely interesting, entertaining, funny, or intelligent. Every time, you say something, it sounds like the shit coming out of my ass, and the fart coming out of my butthole. You are a dick

I'm a great actor, nobody can tell. This is to you, you know who you are. I was so scared of you, I knew you were bad. Mom didn't listen I never wanted you to be my stepdad.

When I went to the counter to sell a couple pairs of boots your coworker helped me. It was sweltering hot that day so I was wondering why you felt it necessary to wear a thick army jacket .

I really hate the way some of you stand away from crowded areas so as not to disturb non-smokers. I hate it so much that walk directly in your path and wave my arms around like an Evangelist on Sunday to disburse the very smoke I'm so averse to. I also like to invade your space and tell you how much your smoke is annoy

We just moved here from a place I shall keep confidential. Our kind isn't always welcome here in Portland, and you natives make no effort to hide your contempt. But I digress.
