Have a nice day

Officials said the 17-year-old driver delivered a pizza to a local mobile home park late Friday, and after collecting payment and making change he urged the customer to "have a nice day."
The driver said the customer responded with one punch to his face and six to his stomach.

Hm. Teenager turns up bruised, claims to have been attacked "by guy he didn't know" for "just being nice". Yeah. I'd like to call the next witness, your honour.

There are mornings when I feel very strongly that perky people need a good punch in the face . . .

@F.U.D.: no, but I've gone to school with lying teenagers.

I bet he delivered that pizza, then got himself into a fight with another teenager (possibly, but not necessarily, from that same trailer park or his own school), and blamed it on the "white trash".

Not denying that white trash exists. I live near some. But the kind of teenager who gets in trouble with them is more than likely trash itself, as well.

Oh, and @Phideaux: so do I. But I don't go on with six punches to the stomach. That'd take effort, which I don't want to spend at that point.

As a security guard/receptionist I had one guy who angrily threaten to punch me out for calling him sir.
