    Default Lets start off Kramer week with an all time classic.

    ***** What could be better to start off with than Steve all time
    classic Bronson story.
    This one will live forever out there in LaLla Land. *GRIN*

    When Bronson first moved to Vermont, I was working in a sporting
    goods
    store. He came in and wanted to buy a 'resident' hunting license. I
    refused to sell him one because he hadn't been a resident long enough
    to
    qualify, (6 months needed) and didn't have the required ID (a Vermont
    State ID or Driver's License.) I offered to sell him a 'non-resident'
    license but he refused. That license was much more expensive, of
    course,
    and as he had just purchased his Vermont home that month, (it was in
    all
    the newspapers,) 'he felt' that he was entitled to resident status.


    He went to another shop, bought a resident license, got nabbed by
    Fish
    and Game (who in Vermont, check the registers often,) to the tune of
    $5000 and loss of license. He blamed me for turning him in, (he was
    simply too stupid to realize that someone of his fame can't NOT get
    away
    with anything in a small 'town' like Vermont!) came back to my store
    and
    started a fist fight, not just a shouting match.


    Bronson was a scrappy son of a gun, but small, standing about 5'5" or
    so, and powerfully built. But in those days I was about 24 years old,
    teaching Kung-fu every night and fighting in tournaments on weekends.
    I
    stopped his attack, and delivered him out to the sidewalk. He came
    back
    the next day and started again. I put him outside again, telling him
    that if he tried again, I would call the police and have him charged
    with assault. He never returned to that store.


    A year later I was hired away by another shop to manage the camping,
    scuba, and mountaineering side of their business. Bronson came in
    with
    some friends, recognized me and started mouthing off (only) again. I
    ignored it. Then he demanded to be shown a spear gun, telling his
    friends that they would use it to spear trout in the river behind his
    house for dinner that night. I refused to sell him one, as spear
    fishing
    for trout is illegal in Vermont. He got huffy, and demanded to see
    the
    owner. I brought out the owner, who at first was delighted to have
    such
    a star in his shop, but quickly changed his tune after listening to
    the
    man. Bronson 'insisted' that I be fired on the spot. The owner turned
    to
    me and said "OK, your fired. But first throw this idiot out of my
    store!
    Then go get us some lunch. I'm hungry." I did both. Neither Bronson,
    nor
    his friends, ever returned to that shop. I continued to work there
    until
    I began my own business two years later.

    Chemo the Clown, handing out awards on January the 8th. Priceless!

    Perhaps we can have a klown contest, hopefully Steve and his sockies
    will show up in force ready to steal the limelight.

    ***** No need to get nasty Chemo, wiping rec.cooking off your replies
    are going to get you into trouble.

    Be advised and act accordingly.

    Look forward to seeing you on the 8th. I hope you paid for a ticket
    this time.
    Sneaking in without paying is very naughty you know.

    ***** Far be from me to cause you any trouble Chemo (you seem to be
    troubled enough as it is) but all Steve Kramers "friends" are likely
    to come calling on you over on rec.cooking if you continue with this
    belligerent attitude.

    Cool off old bean, sit back and smell your cookies burning.
