Spare us your grandstanding bullshit, and save your â€œPerry Masonâ€ performance for Law and Order fans and first-year law students.

Honestly overheard at the 7-11 this morning â€“ A conversation between two twenty-something vocational school students who had driven to the 7-11 during what I assume was their morning break from classes.
Student No. 1 (S-1): â€œMan, I am on his [the instructorâ€™s] Shit List.â€
Student No. 2 (S-2) â€œYouâ€™re on his Shit List? Why zat?â€
S-1: â€œHe said it was because I caught an attitude.â€
S-2: â€œCaught an attitude? What zat about?â€
S-1: â€œI dunno, man. I just catch an attitude. You know what Iâ€™m sayinâ€™?â€
S-2: â€œWhat choo mean you caught an attitude?â€
S-1: â€œI dunno, man. I just caught me an attitude.â€
S-1: â€œI dunno, man. Sometimes I just catch an attitude. I dunno why. Like he comes into class yesterday morning and says â€œWassup?â€ and I say â€˜Fuck you.â€™ I dunno why. I jusâ€™ say â€˜Fuck you.â€™â€
I left the store thinking that the guy should immediately apply to Berkeley. He could probably get a scholarship.
