Failure to Engage in Conversation? That’s a Crow-Barrin’!

35090052.JPGA 30-year-old man walks into a Family Dollar store, picks up two bottles of Sprite and walks up to the store counter to pay for his purchase. He pulls out a $5 bill and hands it over to the clerk. The clerk, 20-year-old Ricky Young, tries to engage the man in conversation. “How’s it going? What’s up, bro?”

The customer doesn’t answer.

“It’s a nice day out, huh?”

“I like your shirt.”

“Is that a five dollar bill or are you just happy to see me?”

Finally, after the customer refused to respond, Ricky Young — pissed at the customer’s rude demeanor — picks up a crow bar and beats him on the head with it.

Take that, Mr. Rude Pants.

Turns out, the customer was deaf.

Oopsie.

Well, at least the deaf guy didn’t try to pay with a $1 million bill.
