“What’s up, homie?”

“What’s up, Homie?” When I heard that, I knew there’d be trouble. When I was stopped for my seatbelt, I was also cited for not having proof of insurance so I went to the courthouse today to show proof that I had it all along. There were about 100 people in line and I noticed one guy close to the front who wasn’t there before. He was hard to miss, this middle Eastern man, with his red shirt, tight jeans, D&G belt buckle, a pack of Marlboros squashed in the front pocket and the shiniest pointiest shoes I’ve ever seen. He was watching a movie on his iPad and talking on his cell phone while standing directly under the “No Cell Phones” sign. There was some rumbling starting in the crowd and finally a young guy wearing a tight T-shirt with big muscles confronted him. “You cut in line,” he said and Red answered, “No, I didn’t.” “I saw you and you are not going to the window before me,” said the T-shirt/muscles guy. We all watched as they continued to argue and then an even bigger guy, with an even tighter T-shirt and even bigger muscles, got in T-shirt’s face. “What’s up, homie?” Oh oh. The crowd was silent and frozen still. “I said what’s up, homie? You got a problem?” When T-shirt tried to explain that Red cut in line, Bigger Muscles said, “Relax, man. Let it go.” “I won’t let it go, he cut in line.” Then chests got bigger, we got quieter, and BM said, “You want to take it outside?” “Yeah.” They started to move and I asked the guy in front of me, who weighed in at around 300, if I could take shelter behind him. I cowered in his girth as T-Shirt and his posse and BM and his homies headed outside. There was no security. The next thing I know, they are all talking and cooling down in the corner. We in line were so relieved no one died, we all started talking and laughing about it and it helped pass the time. Five minutes, later, Red shirt was back in line, cutting in front of about 60 people, but no one complained. After an hour and a half, I got to the window, cleared myself, paid a $25 fine, and as I started to leave, the clerk said, “You know, you could have done this in the mail.”

    Ooooo, don’t get me started. Glad I wasn’t there. I would have had to blurt out “listen my dude, your clothes and material objects do not get you a place in the front of the line, nor does playing the ‘political correctness’ card. End o’ da line HOMIE! Whew, I feel better…..
    P.S. Being out there is way better than doing everything online…you can’t write this stuff!

    Jenny, I disagree with MrsNews…I wouldn’t have let you go in front of me. You were enjoying it too much—I would have wanted you to stay right where you were and get the full-on effect. LOLOL!!!! j/k gf!

    Glad you didn’t get clobbered!!

      “pay by mail, Jenny?”…lol…after all that choas. Knowing that Jenny maybe it could’ve been paid online…
      Good thing you dipped behind someone there Jenny, just in case things got crazy. I would’ve done the same thing. Where I go get my registration for my car is the courthouse and I’ve also had to pay for a speeding ticket before and I don’t recall seeing sercurity there either. I think any place that the goverement has connections to need to provide sercurity for us to protect us from harm, because it couldve been a horrible situation there. It’s good things calm down πŸ™‚

      Kathy, I agree with you on this one. I would let Jenny cut in front of me also πŸ™‚

    • Jenny says:

      No one recognized me. You should see me without makeup! …maybe not… πŸ™‚

      • Rhonda says:

        People are used to seeing you with makeup on, so I’m sure you would be spotted in a heartbeat if you had it on today, so I can see why you dont wear it when you are out taking care of things. Cant say that I blame you…
        Oh and Jenny we have seen you without the makeup. Remember? Youre skincare video? At the end of your video, unless you had just a little on for the camera. You really dont look your age with or without the makeup. I hope I look as young as you do or even as young as my mom looks being 60+ πŸ™‚
