Random Conversation at a Local Business

Conversation at a local gas station/convenience mart. {Sound of multiple police sirens in back ground}
Store Attendant: “Go get ’em, guys. Make some revenue!”
Customer:”They have to get it somehow.”
Attendant:”Yup, they do. Wait ’til the road gets repaved. People will be going 90 mph down the road. They’ll be stopping them then. They get them for going 1 mph over now. $75.”
Customer:”Sheesh.”
Attendant:”You read the paper?”
Customer:”Yup.”
Attendant:”Did you see how they want to tax businesses because the unemployment fund is outta money?”
Customer:”I think I heard that on the radio.”
Attendant:”That’s a great move. Tax businesses more and drive ’em out. No wonder we can’t grow this economy.”
Customer:”No kidding. That’s the kind of shortsightedness that’s in this state.”
Attendant:”Yeah. Never gets better. What are people thinking?”
Customer:”Just keep voting the same people in.”
Attendant:”Ha ha ha. Yup. OK, take it easy.”
Customer:”Have a good one.”
