Picture it: waiting in line at the gas station to buy your 44oz cup o' sanity. In front of you is a woman, and in front of her, a man. The man is buying an energy drink.

Woman: "Wow, you drink those?"

Man: "Yeah, they keep me going"

Woman: "I can only ever drink a little and then save the rest."

Man: "Yeah?"

Woman: "Yeah. It gets my heart going too much. I have heart problems. But sometimes I need it because I have three kids. But I can't drink the whole thing because of what it does to my heart. And I need to stick around for my kids."

Man: (pause) "Okay.... bye."

Woman: (steps to counter) "I'll take a carton of Marlboro Red's."

Me: seriously?
