After purchasing the two bottles of solution, you find TJ over in the "Toys" aisle.You : "Alright TJ, we'll get you the sand shovels for Christmas." TJ : "You're a funny guy." After getting into the car, TJ makes a suggestion.
TJ : (pointing to the end of the parking lot that doesn't visibly connect to a road) "You know, I wonder if we can get out that way?"
You : "Why?"
TJ : "Oh I don't know. Let's just continue doing errands."
You : "What, ,is that all we do?"
TJ : "No, no. Our entire youth isn't spent getting chasing cats, buying contact solution, and getting gifts for the next holiday."
You : "Dude, of course not. It's usually much more interesting."
TJ : "Yeah, I don't know what I'm talking about. Sorry about that."
You : "Yeah, TJ. You've been acting kinda strange lately; you feeling OK?"
TJ : "I'm good, I'm good. Wait, what the heck are you doing — I was just joking. Man, its probably not good for this car to go over that kind of grass."
You : "What do you mean? This is the way we always take."
TJ : "Ha. Seriously dude."
(car swerves right, turning around corner of CVS)
You : "Crap. Steel dumpster."TJ : "DUDE!!"
(In order to avoid crashing into the steel dumpster, you barely squeeze in between two parked Cadillacs situated with other parked cars in a circle.)
TJ : "Good one, man. Reeeaaal good one.You are first filled with surprise and then great elation at the fact that you didn't crash. That was too close — what were you thinking? Your emotions quickly turn to fear once you look up to see four scary men in the center of the parked cars; they are all looking at you. You immediately get out of the car. This is probably a bad idea, but for some reason you do it without thinking; it's probably because you feel guilty. One of the men is wearing sunglasses. He speaks to you.
Sunglasses : "Hey, we never talked about showing up now. Here. We deal with you over the counter."
You are in quite the predicament: what do you do? You could play along with it, and then try to sneak out. But that may be disastrous; should you just own up to the fact that you accidentally stumbled upon this little gathering, and then get the hell out?
