Fucking Hippies!

Today a hippie inconvenienced me. I walked from my desk to the vending machine to grab a Coke, and when I got there I found that the machine was rejecting my perfectly good dollar bill. I examined the bill, and found what I presume is the culprit. A stamp near George Washington’s mouth with a cartoon speech bubble reading “I Grew Hemp”. I tried the bill in all possible orientations, but all were rejected even though it was in tip-top shape. And since I had just brought enough for a drink, I had to hike back to my desk to obtain a non-patchoulli bill.

  1. Damn hippies! I still haven’t forgiven the old hippie that returned a zipcar late and made me get stuck in traffic for 45 minutes. I see him in Coolidge Corner all the time.

    1. yeh

      pot smoking burn outs make me sooo mad. one time, uhh… this dude, like, totally spilled my beer, and i was like, “you fucking hippie. go back to boulder, and wash your fucking hair.”

  2. Hippy originally meant “fake hipster”. I like that.

    I heard an old dude in the hall say “We weren’t hip back then. We were HEP.”

  3. hippies suck!

    I desperately tried to find your email address but since I had no luck I’m saying hi here. I just wanted to say it was really good to hear from you and I was very touched by your offer of help. I’m pretty sure I have everything under control at the moment, but if you lived out here I’d totally be recruiting you to help me pack! Anyway I hope we’ll keep in touch more now – and if you ever end up in Phoenix and want to hang out with a crazy girl and her spawn, I’d love to see you!

      My email address is still my CSH address (grahams at …), so you can always get ahold of me there… I think you can also somehow get a working email address out of typekey on your weblog…
