Meanwhile in my neighborhood...

From my local paper:

Clerk assaulted with sausage

CHAPEL HILL -- A woman attacked a convenience store clerk with a sausage Thursday morning after she was unable to use the store's outdoor vacuum cleaner for her car.

The 34-year-old clerk at Buy & Go, located at 106 Ephesus Church Road, reported that a woman came in the store and said she wanted to use the vacuum cleaner but a car was parked in the way, said Jane Cousins of the Chapel Hill Police Department.

When the clerk told the woman that the car was disabled and could not be moved, she picked up a Big Mama Pickled Sausage from the counter and threw it at the clerk.

The sausage hit the clerk in the face, Cousins said. The clerk retreated to the back room of the store, and the woman left, police reported.

What was the clerk supposed to do--lift the car out of the way like Superman? Some people's kids...

I don't go for wasting food in anger, either. I hope they made her pay for the sausage!

"Put the sausage down, we have the house surrounded."

"Send out a hostage and we send in the mustard."

"We are trying to locate the sauerkraut. Please stay calm. It will be sent in as soon as we get it."

"There is no reason to throw your life away. The sausage hasn't been hurt yet. Step away from the sausage and live."

OK, I'll stop now- but I could go one and on.
