"Don't trip"

As I was walking to work this morning I was texting someone. (Sir Jeffy to see if he wants to play tennis after work. Do you?) And someone yelled out of their car at me "Don't trip!" And then I heard a good amount of laughter. It wasn't bombastic laughter, but it was a solid decent amount of laughter especially at a joke that isn't all that clever. I mean I wasn't tripping or about to trip, but I suppose someone texting while walking could trip.

And at first I was kind of pissed. Like "Don't you be yelling out of your car at me I could walk on a tight rope while texting and not trip. Boo ya." (It's not great comeback, but it's concise and gets the point across). But then anger quickly turned into jealousy. If that simple "joke" made someone that happy then they have so much fodder in this city. Everyone is constantly texting while they walk. That person (my guess, Asian girl) could spend all day driving around and yelling "don't trip" out her window and laughing. Good for her, right? I don't think I get that much joy out of something I see everyone do all the time, and slapping a semi-funny, uh barely clever saying to it, and laugh. I just don't think I could.

Although, there was a point when my friends and I first got our drivers lisences and we would pull up to cars and ask where the Scotch Tape store was...

But, "don't trip." Seriously.

Therefor, thusly, in conclusion, that girl had a good laugh on the way to work and I did not. BUT the cafeteria lady under-charged me for my oatmeal and I bet that car yelling Asian girl didn't get that. (But what if she did? And this car yelling Asian girl is always one-upping me. I must find her. I must find her a destroy her.)

this may surprise you, but i know that asian girl, and she's just as jealous of you as you are of her. i think this is something that could be solved over an orange julius. meet me at the food court.
