Change is in the air...

So I was walking across the street to Scooter's to get some coffee when a guy carrying some bags approached me and said, "You're a smart looking fella".

I'm thinking to myself at this point, this guy is either a con artist or crazy.  Clearly I am smart, and probably good looking too, but I wouldn't say that to a stranger unless I had a ulterior motive.

He goes on, "maybe you should read Missouri Statutes 323 on homeless people then,  f*cker!" and then he walked off.  I'm at a loss for words at that point, as a) he mumbled a bit of it and I was trying to digest what he was saying, and b) his concluding argument caught me off guard.

Perhaps he needed a little Christmas cheer.  A sardonic reply came to my lips moments too late, but that is probably for the best.

Yet another reason I love working downtown.   I guess you can at least see the crazies coming at you, versus in JoCo they are more discreet.  ;-)


  1. So what does MO Statute 323 say anyway?

  2. No idea. I probably didn't hear him correctly or something, because I tried looking it up and didn't find anything related to homeless people. But I'm no expert on looking up statutes nor am I willing to take the time to read 100 page documents to satisfy curiosity.
