My hero

Man takes pry bar to self-check till

Machine whacked after speaking to him in Spanish


Well, let's look at it this way: At least, this guy wasn't buying a blowtorch.

But that age-old adage that patience is a virtue somehow slipped the mind of a man shopping at The Home Depot on Utah Avenue South in Seattle on Thursday.

Around 9 p.m., the man was in line at a self-service checkout stand, ready to buy a pry bar and a hacksaw, according to a Seattle police report.

But, as a manager told an officer, the man accidentally hit the button on the computer screen for Spanish.

That was the tipping point for this consumer.

He became "frustrated that the machine was speaking Spanish," the police report says.

So, instead of asking for help, he let loose a blow with the pry bar and shattered the computer. He ran from the store and made a beeline to some railroad tracks, the report said.

A Seattle police officer searched for the man, but didn't find him.

The manager believes he caused about $10,000 in damage. He left the pry bar in his shopping cart.
All I can say is, glad to hear it.

This is America. You wanna live here, learn to speak American.

I couldn't agree with you more. In fact, just last week, I did a three-part posting called, "Bitching Until I'm Red, White, and Blue in the Face."

Yup. I read that post.
Totally with you there.
