I’m having trouble breathing right now.
Some selfish-ass motherfucker just stormed into the lobby of the hotel, and tried to change the television channel. No big deal, except the program a few of us were watching was the game between NFL rivals Green Bay and Chicago!!!
What a jerk!!!
Doesn’t this clown have a television set in his hotel room? And, what fucking show would you dare turn to when there’s an NFL game on???
Let’s back up. Begin story.
I’m sitting here working on my laptop in the lobby of the Courtyard Marriott in Bossier City, Louisiana. Internet connection is strong here, so I’m camping. It just so happens there’s a big screen television with the Green Bay-Chicago game being shown. Nice!
So, there are perhaps 3-4 people watching the game, minding their own business. Then, out of nowhere — this middle-aged jerk barges into the lobby and grabs the remote. He starts flicking through the channels like he’s standing alone in his underwear at 3 am, totally oblivious to the danger he is putting himself in.
I thought the man was pulling a bad joke.
But no. He starts flicking the channels and I am sitting there speechless. Finally, the words come.
“Hey, we’re watching that game, man!” I say.
“Yeah, I just want to check out something else for a minute,” he says.
So, the prick starts with the remote and like watches each channel for 30 seconds before flicking to the next channel. I’m not believing what I am seeing. Does this man have a death wish?
I’m like shaking by this point. I decide to grab my cell phone and take a picture of this prick (see above) because this might end up as the lead story on the 11 o’clock news.
I decide to give the idiot another 3-4 minutes to get his rocks off. That passes. He’s still channel surfing!!!
“What in the hell are you looking for?” I ask.
“I don’t know,” he says. “I just wanted to see what else was on!”
Are you fucking kidding me????????????
By this time a few others have mustered up the courage to run this lout out of the room. One of the guests insists that we were all here first, so we have control of what gets shown on TV. If he wants to pick the show, he needs to get here earlier and stake out his territory.
Finally, the man sitting to the right (in the photo) simply walks over and grabs the remote out of the fool’s hand. He shifts the TV back to the game.
The snake slinks away like the loser he is and now all is right with the universe.
No lead story about a homicide on the 11 o’clock news. But it was close.
