(deep breath) This was the past hour/twenty of my life.

I will try to leave out adjectives that are pejorative.
I love the new DVD player. I am amazed at the quality, especially on a big glass tube TV. I am a photographer, I can see the difference easily.

I drive far too much, so I decide to walk to the Video Hut past the freeway. I find Black Hawk Down and get Beautiful Mind since everyone tells me I'm crazy. I walk to the front. Thru the plexiglas the woman beckons her little daughter; the mom doesn't speak English.

Daughter says we need ID and a bill. A bill? Like mail? "yes"
Um, I just walked a half mile and it's 90 (32c) out and I don't have any mail. I have a perfect drivers license, with address only 6 city blocks away on the same street, (looks like me), I have 5 credit cards, a car insurance card with address AND I have 5 (five) photo-business cards with the same address. These are five different cards not computer-printed. I'm sorry this is all I have on me, and you won't run my credit card without a bill.

A perfect case of triumph of rules, over intelligence.

Long story short I walk back under the freeway and go straight to my car at home. I drive to Planet Hollywood. It's empty. I go straight to the (older) girl and I ask her to run my name in the computer. ( This place is a lot richer, in a better hood)

I say, "please check my last name, break, b r e a k."
I can hear her thru the glass saying "b r a k e"
"no it's the other one"
"what other one?"
"like broken, b r e a k"
I hear, "b r a k e n"
"It's b r e a k"
"b r a k e"

I am not making this up.
The look of intensity I give her wordlessly brings the manager over. I have stopped speaking and just stare at her.

I'm sure they must get all sorts of troublesome people there, so he takes in a deep breath and asks to see my ID. I give it to him, he types in "break", and says my account is in good standing. "Thankyou, Sir" and I still won't look at the girl again. She was even cute. Too bad.

I'm home now, rather incensed, and I am going to watch those movies. Several times, even.

I go through this shit my whole life and it will never stop.

b r e a k, thanks.

My father (Carl Blake) is always in Japan.
When I call him at his hotel I ask for Car Brake  ...no kidding.

my last name is Suite... you can imagine all the trouble that causes.  People always spell it "sweet" and pronounce it "suit" =P
