Me: "How was the anime convention?"
Customer: "Oh god, I ended up not going. I was in the subway car, on the way there when this weenus in a giant blue Tetris L-shape kept bumping into me and arguing with some poseur in some kinda...tinfoil space pirate outfit...about which Pokemon master was cooler Ash or...whoever isn't Ash. I haven't heard that level of annoying geekiness since I gave up playing D&D when they released" he shudders, "Fourth Edition."
Random Loiterer On The Other Side Of The Store: "What's wrong with fourth edition? You have something against balanced game play?"*
And the two of them proceed to spend fifteen minutes arguing about D&D, oblivious to how many times I inch the volume up on the music.
* - Less than twelve hours previous, I heard three drunk poets have the same argument, all most verbatim.
