Coffee Shop Car Wreck

Oh, I backed right into you there, didn't I.
My mistake.

Do you have your license? Insurance?
You scuffed me there.

Yes, but it's just a scuff, do you really need my information?

Yeah, ya know. I think I do. Who are you anyway? Thinking you can get off here?

I don't think I can get out of here, I'm just saying, if you had knocked a stone off a ledge or something, it would have had the same effect.

Okay dude, but I didn't hit a f____ stone off a well trimmed garden's edge. Are you for real?

Woah, wow, no need to get so aggressive. What is up here?

God, for REAL. You are a piece dude. A piece.
