I was shooed by a grown man

So… I am at QuikTrip this morning and I see a friend of my dad’s. I have known this man all my life, he is one of those curmudgeon-types. I decided to walk over and say hi. We’ll call him &*!!.

Me: “Hey &*!!.”

&*!!: “Oh, hi.”

Me: “What have you been up to?”

&*!!: “I’m retired.”

”Me: “I know, but what have you been doing with your time.”

&*!!: “I’m very busy. I don’t have time to talk.”

Then he shooed me away. One grown man shooed another grown man away.

“OK.” I turned around and started to walk away.

&*!!: “Uh, it was good to see you.”

I responded, “I wish I could say the same.”

So… my day is off to a great start. At least I got the last word, and if I can say it, it was the perfect comeback too.
