I took my five grandkids to the circus at the Golden Spike Arena. We were having fund and all of a sudden the woman in front of my grandson turned around and was going to grab him. I asked what was wrong and she said he was kicking the back of her seat. I apologized and she was still screaming.
She no sooner turned around, when she began screaming again that the boy on the otherside had spilled a little of his drink on her husband’s shirt!
She was screaming and everybody was standing up and wondering what was going on. I again said I was sorry and so did my grandson (there was an exciting moment and everyone stood up——that’s when my grandson accidentally spilled a drop on the man’s shirt).
I asked the woman why she didn’t turn around and watch the circus. I Heard a twang, and her husband removed the lid from his 20-ounce drink and threw it on me and my grandson! I said, “What was that for,” and he said, “You insulted my wife.”
I said, “Thanks, I was a little hot anyway.” I held up my drink and said, “Look, we still have our drinks,” and I sat down.
I didn’t know until later that throwing that drink was considered an assault! People are going nuts! Everybody seems as though they have chips on their shoulders. Why?
