The Heckler

Today, I had my first run-in with the man known as "The Heckler." With our move to a new building, we are now parking in a different location. This means I often pass by a man who alternates between sitting and sleeping on a bench between two government buildings. Last week, a friend warned that The Heckler doesn't like people who wear suits. He also shows his displeasure when people ignore and don't talk to him.

As I walked to my car this afternoon, I saw him sitting on the bench, warming up his routine. There were two guys in front of me, one in a suit. I squeaked out, "Good afternoon!" He said, "I'm so (beepin') tired of this!" I managed to mutter, "Ok," then quickly moved on. I wonder what would happen if a person yelled back at him. I don't think I'm brave enough to try.

Hilarious! I double dog dare you to yell back at the heckler. My son, Bomber, can give you some good nonsense lines. He might be mentally ill. Yell something like, "My name is CHEESE!" and see what the Heckler does. Please?
