Dream of:09 January 1982 (2) "Assault"
As I was driving along a highway, I decided to stop into a hamburger place something like a McDonald's to get something to eat. I walked in and ordered a milkshake, French fries and either a hamburger or cheeseburger. Among the money I had in my pocket was a brand new $10 bill. I knew the store had a policy of checking new money, and as I handed the $10 bill to the girl behind the counter, I thought she had better accept it or I would complain that they had a duty to take it. The girl looked at the bill for a moment and then called over a man who looked as if he might be the manager of the place. He picked up the phone and made a phone call.
He then picked up my milkshake and walked to the front of the store with it. He threw the milkshake toward a trash can and missed, so that it landed on the floor. He walked over, to the milkshake, picked it up and threw it in the trash. He then took my hamburger and French fries and threw them in the trash.
I then became quite angry and demanded, "What have you done? You've thrown away my food."
He replied that he couldn't take the $10 bill. I answered, "Couldn't you have checked to see if I had some other money?"
He looked somewhat embarrassed as if he realized he had made a mistake. I began screaming, "I want my food! You should have checked to see if I had some other money!"
I began pounding on the counter, until he stepped up to me and told me I was going to have to leave. I told him I wasn't going to leave. He then physically tried to throw me out, but I wouldn't move. He knocked me down, and I hollered "Assault! Assault!"
I began thinking I had a black belt in karate and that I could easily subdue the fellow, even though he was almost twice my size. Nevertheless I let him push me around a little and I thought I would wait before using any karate on him.Dream Epics Home Page
