Where am I?

For your consideration:

Assuming that you are living in a rational world where at least most things make sense, how would you think the following scenario would play out?

A young fellow, we will call him "Tony", goes over to his buddy's house because he is bored. While his buddy, we will call him "Barry", finishes up some tasks, Tony tries to amuse himself in the yard.

He picks up a baseball bat and swings at bumble bees that are flying around looking for suitable flowers to do their thing. Carelessness takes hold, and Tony swings, misses the bee, but connects smartly with the passenger side, rear window of Barry's car - shattering it and the peacefulness of the neighborhood.

Barry rushes out of the house and demands, "What are you doing? Why did you smash my window?"

Now remember, we are in a rational world. What would you think Tony's reaction would be?

A. "I'm sorry, man. I was just fooling around. It was an accident. I will pay for it."
B. "What are you talking about? What window?"
C. Tony totally ignores Barry and continues to swing at bees.
D. "What is wrong with you, Barry? You want a piece of me?"

Your answers are appreciated. I will follow up when there has been sufficient answers to this quandry.

I'm going for "A".

...but I feel like that wasn't the answer that was given.

I'm going to say "A" Too. If this is a rational world, then you must be "Barry".

Let me try wishing you well again, maybe it may work this time. LOL

I hope that nothing else bad happens to you. Crossing fingers for luck.

First off, you gotta tell me who Tony is. Second, my guess is D--or you wouldn't have written the post that way, right?

deslily said...

the "rational" answer would be A but I am guessing you really aren't going for that.

Tai said...

Gosh, any answer BUT 'A', of course!

Sayre said...

"a" in a rational world, but I'm guessing "c".

So, now that I'm voting "A" too...do we get to hear what really happend?

You know, I'm almost afraid to ask...

Well now, my 'rational' mind would say "A"...and like some I have a strange feeling it's not...

Like the others I'm thinking that 'A' is the only acceptable answer, and yet not the one you received. I'm going for 'B' and hoping it's not 'D', because that would be awful from a friend.

Congratulations. You are all rational. Unfortunately, you aren't in my world. Check out today's blog entry.

Well hi (great blog btw, came over from Chosa!). I think you are using the word 'rational' when you mean to use the word 'mature'. The obviously mature thing would be A, but since I am not the least bit mature (and am, in fact, quite a little coward) I'd have to go with B. B is what I'd go for, but I can't speak for anyone else, really.
