Me: Mom, I'm home late cuz i had to take a detour, stupid mexicans are tearing up highway 321.
Mom: Stupid mexicans *shakes head in disappointment*.
Me: I told mom earin and i were still at movie gallery when in fact, we were taking a detour up by the intersection near my house.
You: Weren't you there for like, an hour?
Me: Yeah, napkins saved my life....and my Led Zeppelin shirt. That interstection is most definitely corrupt
You: ....how many "Allowed Characters" do you have?
