Office chatter

Someone: ". . . because you can get eight pieces of chicken for $8 at Safeway, or you can get two pieces of chicken for $8 at KFC."

My head: "Yes, but you are only one person; you don't need eight pieces of fried chicken."

The Picket Line

My favorite thing about a group of workers going on strike is the opportunity to refer to people as scabs.

Harry Arno

"After they talked to him for two hours he spent the rest of the night in a detective-division holding cell. The next morning Harry told the Crimes-Against-Persons detectives it was just as easy to fix eggs the right way, over easy, for [Hell's] sake, as it was to fry them till they were stiff as leather. One of the detectives let him know the eggs were from the Cuban joint down the street. Call them up if he wanted to complain."

--Elmore Leonard, "Pronto," p. 35
