This is for
all of you who occasionally have a really bad day when you just need to
take it out on someone!!! Don't take that bad day out on someone you know,
take it out on someone you DON'T know!!!
Now get this. I was sitting at my desk, when I remembered a phone call I
had to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered nicely
saying, "Hello?" I politely said, "This is Patrick Hanifin and could I
please speak to Robin Carter?"
Suddenly the phone was slammed down on me! I couldn't believe that anyone
could be that rude. I tracked down Robin's correct number and called her.
She had transposed the last two digits incorrectly.
After I hung up with Robin, I spotted the wrong number still lying there
on my desk. I decided to call it again. When the same person once more
answered, I yelled "You're an asshole!" and hung up. Next to his phone
number I wrote the word "asshole," and put it in my desk drawer.
Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills, or had a really bad day,
I'd call him up. He'd answer, and then I'd yell, "You're an asshole!" It
would always cheer me up.
Later in the year the phone company introduced caller ID. This was a real
disappointment for me, I would have to stop calling the asshole.
Then one day I had an idea. I dialed his number, then heard his voice,
"Hello." I made up a name. "Hi. This is the sales office of the telephone
company and I'm just calling to see if you're familiar with our caller ID
program?" He went, "No!" and slammed the phone down. I quickly called him
back and said, "That's because you're an asshole!"
The reason I took the time to tell you this story, is to show you how if
there's ever anything really bothering you, you can do something about it.
Just dial 823-4863.
Then, one day this old lady at the mall really took her time pulling out
of the parking space. I didn't think she was ever going to leave. Finally,
her car began to move and she started to very slowly back out of the slot.
I backed up a little more to give her plenty of room to pull out.
Great, I thought, she's finally leaving.
All of a sudden this black Camaro came flying up the parking aisle in the
wrong direction and pulled into her space. I started honking my horn and
yelling, "You can't just do that, Buddy. I was here first!" The guy
climbed out of his Camaro completely ignoring me. He walked toward the
mall as if he didn't even hear me. I thought to myself, this guy's an
asshole; there sure are a lot of assholes in this world. I noticed he had
a "For Sale" sign in the back window of his car. I wrote down the number.
Then I hunted for another place to park.
A couple of days later, I'm at home sitting at my desk. I had just gotten
off the phone after calling 823-4863 and yelling, "You're an asshole!"
(It's really easy to call him now since I have his number on speed dial.)
I noticed the phone number of the guy with the black Camaro lying on my
desk and thought I'd better call this guy, too.
After a couple rings someone answered the phone and said, "Hello."
I said, "Is this the man with the black Camaro for sale?"
"Yes, it is."
"Can you tell me where I can see it?"
"Yes, I live at 1802 West 34th street. It's a yellow house and the car's
parked right out front."
I said, "What's your name?"
"My name is Don Hansen."
"When's a good time to catch you, Don?"
"I'm home in the evenings."
"Listen Don, can I tell you something?"
"Don, you're an asshole!" And I slammed the phone down.
After I hung up I added Don Hansen's number to my speed dialer. For a
while things seemed to be going better for me. Now when I had a problem I
had two assholes to call. Then after several months of calling the
assholes and hanging up on them, it just wasn't as enjoyable as it used to
be. I gave the problem some serious thought and came up with a solution.
First, I had my phone dial Asshole #1. A man answered nicely saying,
"Hello." I yelled "You're an asshole!", but I didn't hang up.
The asshole said, "Are you still there?"
I said, "Yeah."
He said, "Stop calling me."
I said, "No."
He said, "What's your name, Pal?"
I said, "Don Hansen."
He said "Where do you live?"
"1802 West 34th Street. It's a yellow house and my black Camaro's parked
"I'm coming over right now, Don. You'd better start saying your prayers."
"Yeah, like I'm really scared, Asshole!" and I hung up.
Then I called Asshole #2.
He answered, "Hello."
I said, "Hello, Asshole!"
He said, "If I ever find out who you are..."
"I'll kick your butt."
"Well, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now Asshole!"
And I hung up.
Then I picked up the phone and called the police. I told them I was at
1802 West 34th Street and that I was going to kill my gay lover as soon as
he got home. Another quick call to Channel 13 about the gang war going on
down West 34th Street.
After that I climbed into my car and headed over to 34th Street to watch
the whole thing. Glorious! If you want to watch two Assholes kicking the
crap out of each other in front of 6 squad cars and a police helicopter,
I taped it all off the evening news. lol
