OVERHEARD: EXASPERATION ON THE J-CHURCH
Situation: After arguing with his father for a few minutes, a three-year-old boy is finally allowed to hold onto the pole instead of sitting down next to dad. Then Enthusiastic Drunken Bum takes an interest.
Enthusastic Drunken Bum: (Yells teasingly.) You’d better hold on!
Boy: (Glances in EDB’s general direction, pretends not to hear.)
EDB: I say, you better hold on!
Boy: (Turns back to EDB.)
EDB: You better hold on, there!
Boy: (Ignores him.)
EDB: You better hold on!
