So last night I stopped at a gas station to get, well, gas, while I was doing my paper route. I had a complaint from a customer, stating they did not receive their paper yesterday. Me being, well, me, I carry around with me (in my car that is) a small portable typewriter. I don't have good penmanship AT ALL, so when I need to leave a customer a note on a manner I type one up and put it with their paper. Anyway,so I'm sitting there pumping gas while typing on my typewriter listening to my MP3 player, which is hooked up to play through my car speakers. Suddenly some good ol' Benny Goodman comes on. Oh yea, I"m happy, so I turn it up some.

I then hear the click of the gas nozzle finishing fillin' up Simmons (my Blazer to who don't know the story) and stepped out to put it back. From inside the gas station a ninty-ish year old man walks- no- waddles out and heads for his car in front of mine. Well he hears the music, so waddles over to me curiously. By that time I'm back inside my vehicle and finishing my little note to my customer about her missing paper. He knocks on my window, surprising me, but I roll it down anyway and ask if there is a problem.

He looks at my typewriter, then me, then raises his eye brow.

"Kid, you're listening to music from over fifty years ago. I now see you're typing on a typewriter. For gods sake get with the times."

He then walks away. Half way to his car he draws out his smart phone and texts someone.

I'm left speechless...

I just technically got called "old" by someone nearly four times older than me...

What is this world coming to? Gosh dern old people and their modern fancy elecomontronics... wait, something about that sounds backwards.

The motel I work at has a STATE OF THE ART filing cabinet, a 31 day room chart with TAPE to mark reservations, and an early nineties printer to record phone room calls.

I don't always favourite journal entries.
But when I do, it's because there's an awesome story in it.

Benny Goodman is timeless. But a type writer? O.o

And what's a literary genius like you doing delivering Newspapers? You should be writing in Newspapers!

I know it's hard to get work as a Journalist these days. But there's hope! Fox news hires fiction writers! You could probably apply there.

Sorry, had to take a stab at Fox, but seriously, you're a damn good writer. Try it professionally. As someone in the know, I can tell you there's a market for talented writers, especially ones who come with their own strong reader base. Were I in a position to do it, I'd hire you this moment. Perhaps one day when I own my own evil media empire, I'll hire you! :empllama:

Well, IMO, we should at least appreciate the oldies...


Otherwise, how do we get to the modern stuff if it weren't for the old?

I listen to music from the 50's all the time. Hell, I even listen to music from Beethoven's time! Music is timeless, especially classical.

I don't know what he's talkin' about; that typewriter is bloody awesome, as is whatever music you were listening to. Golden oldies, man. And if the music was the Beatles, then all the better. :D
