Overheard at the Counter: Bumper Stickers

Niall Carter at the counter, telling John Steppenwolf and the Barista about the bumper stickers that he wants to have made, with which he expects to (as he puts it) "make the mint"

Procrastination NOW!

Eschew Obsfucation

("I had that on a t-shirt when I was younger," says Steppenwolf)

My other car is a shuttlecraft

My other car is an X-Wing

My other car is the BATMOBILE

Marry your Best Friend

("I'd put that one on my car," says the Barista)

"Yeah" Niall says, "and this one you can't put on a bumper sticker, well, you could, but the print'd be so small you couldn't read it, but I overheard someone at the office today saying about spouses in general that you should try to keep 'em happy because they're the ones you 'GOTTA' live with . . . 'you gotta live with this person every day'

"And I thought to myself, 'we need to change that' - this concept of you HAVE to live with this person, so I want to put the word out that:

"If you want to be happy, go from

I GOT to live with this person , to

I GET to live with this person!"

"Nice," says Steppenwolf.

"Very nice," says the Barista.
