Payphone situated at a local diner.


“You would like to make a call. Please hang up, and try again. You need help? Hang up and then dial your operator, thank you.”


“Yes, Ms. Operator can you give me the area code for Filipino American Dream?” “Sorry, there’s no listing.” “Are you freaking kidding me? Look again, you dumb, b***h!” “Sorry, please refrain from using that language.” “You’re such a Twix, Ms.” “Sorry, don’t understand. Did you say Tricks?” “What’s the problem, b***h? You’re such a fruit loop. Are you on dope? This is FAD.” “Sorry, can I be of assistance?”


“Click.”


She must have had bananas, bananas for breakfast. She’s sorry. I’ll give her a word of worries. Refrain from using language. Sorry, b***h. I’ll give her my area code. Dial zero, for Ms. Operator. There is no common denominator.  I’m going to pull the wires Ms. Operator.


“Yes, Ms. Operator can you give me country code for the Philippines?” “You must Dial 011, 63, City code, Telephone number.” “Thank you, Ms. Operator. There is a common denominator.”


“Dial tone.”


“You would like to make a call. Please hang up, and try again. You need help? Hang up and then dial your operator, thank you.”


She got me all in a mix.                                                                          
Conflicts did you say tricks?                                                       
Remix dispatch is not clear.                                                                
Sincere, I do understand.                                                         
Withstand service does have glitches.                                       
Twitches frustration hits your mind.                                     
Design turns a blind eye.                                                   
Emphasize takes control of the situation.                                      
Action gets answers with intimidation.                                            
Reaction is scrupulous.                                                     
Unanimous uses verbal communication.                                     
Interaction degrades with lack of integrity.                                    
Definitely is a major confusion.                       
Translation lost to commutate.                                                          
Relate, resolve and redial.                                                           
All awhile wait on standby.

I don’t mean to curse.                                                                 
Verse dips at times.                                                                                  
Sometimes you have to use the curse.                                             
Versus letting are words out.                                                                
Down and out.                                                                                           
Shout out loud.                                                                                          
Shroud out everything.                                    
Circumventing acts out to liberate.

I’m all in the mix.                                                                                     
I want to scream.                                                                          
I’ve just had a bowl of Twix.                                                               
I told you.                                                                                 
I wanted my eggs over easy.                                                           
My bacon is a little too crispy.                                                    
Dam you, waitress.                                                                           
We all feel this way at times.                                                     
Have a bad day at work and such.                                           
You go to the drug store.                                                   
Pharmacist fills your prescription for antibiotics.              
Just to see she gave you a dam laxative.                                
Get in the car.                                                                                    
Gas is almost empty.                                                                       
You go to the station.                                                                 
Pump is not working.                                           
Gas is overly priced.                                                                 
Cannot get that either.

I don’t mean to curse.                                                        
Verse dips at times.                                          
Sometimes you have to use the curse.                  
Versus letting are words out.                                   
Down and out.                                                        
Shout out loud.                                                                                          
Shroud out everything.                                                             
Circumventing acts out to liberate.

You see do not smoke sign.                                                       
You’re smoking your last one.                                      
A bad habit, but is an expensive one.                          
Ask tenant for your favorite brand of Winston.                  
All he got is a bunch of Salem.                                     
So, you bum one from a guy that smokes Marlboro.         
He’s down to his last one, too.                                   
You’re a bit thirsty.                                                           
You get your favorite drink a Rock Star.                   
Just to see Red Bull replaced your favorite shelf.        
You settle for one an energy drink.                                    
Stuff is starting to replace coffee, but a quick fix.               
Get back in the car, turn engine on.                                    
Dam, red light turns on.                                                
Turn radio on to listen for your favorite station.    
Just to catch last part of your favorite song.                          
You go to grocery store, get a few items.                                   
Usual is milk and orange juice.                                     
Get to the bread aisle.                                                            
Just to see an older lady got the last one, dam.                              
You settle for just the eggs.                                                         
Open carton and they’re all broken.                          
Dam you, waitress.                                                                       
She got you back for the bacon incident.                                     
Get to the checking aisle.                                                  
See person in front of you is using a check, dam.          
Here goes another 5 minutes.                                            
Out in the parking lot is a shopping cart.                                         
Smack and hits the side of your car.                        
Here goes rest of the day.                                                                   
We all feel this way at times.                                                        
This is a bad day at work, and such.

I don’t mean to curse.                                                                
Verse dips at times.                                                       
Sometimes you have to use the curse.                    
Versus letting are words out.                                                  
Down and out.                                                                                    
Shout out loud.                                                                          
Shroud out everything.                                         
Circumventing acts out to liberate.

I think anything that is out of the box and unique people are intimidated by....I gravitate toward different and love something that challenges standard thinking. I don't know. I find your style refreshing.

3382 views and not a single review, what is wrong with you people?

Why do you sneak peak some one work, when you can't even drop a line or two! Sorry Glen, just felt strange...you will find much better audience!
