Partisan Meanie

And now, a scene from my Sunday afternoon:

INT, WALMART.

SPIKE APPROACHES THE CHECKOUT AND AN ELDERLY LADY STARTS RINGING HIS GROCERIES UP
.

OLD WOMAN: And how are we today?
SPIKE: Fine, thanks. And yourself?
OLD WOMAN: Oh, I'm just fine.
SPIKE: Good.

THE OLD WOMAN ACCIDENTALLY KNOCKS OVER SOMETHING ON THE CONVEYOR BELT.

OLD WOMAN: Whoops! I didn't do that!
SPIKE: (GOING ALONG WITH THE JOKE) That's alright, I didn't see you doing it.

THE OLD WOMAN LAUGHS.

SPIKE: In fact I was on vacation at the time it didn't happen.
OLD WOMAN: (LAUGHS) That sounds like one of the excuses that Obama would use.

SPIKE'S EXPRESSION CHANGES TO LESS-THAN-FRIENDLY AND THE WOMAN CONTINUES RINGING UP AND BAGGING THE GROCERIES.

CUT TO: CLOSE-UP OF THE CUSTOMER KEYPAD, SHOWING A LIST OF THE GROCERIES AND THE TOTAL.

UNDERNEATH, A SECTION ASKS "WAS YOUR CASHIER POLITE TODAY?" WITH ONE BUTTON MARKED "YES" AND ONE BUTTON MARKED "NO".

SPIKE LOOKS UP AT THE OLD WOMAN. HE PRESSES "NO".

A couple of weeks ago an attractive young lady at the rent-a-car place came this close to droppin' the n-bomb on Obama, so I called Palin a snake-handler.

SPIKE EXIT STAGE LEFT.

Brilliant. Will this be in a short independent movie?
