Generosity with a aspect of chili cheese fries

Personally, I’ve all the time felt Casey Jones, who allegedly drove that practice whereas excessive on cocaine, was railroaded. Was there hassle forward? Positive. Bother behind? You wager. And sure, Mr. Jones was warned about his velocity. However for fuck’s sake, the Nationwide Transportation Security Board didn’t even conduct a proper investigation into Mr. Jones!

Fortunately, I belong to a group of like-minded Casey Jones defenders. We stopped holding common conferences again in ‘95, however the lengthy, unusual journey continues, and so the group endures.

Which brings me to the practice, not the one Casey Jones allegedly operated beneath the affect of narcotics, however relatively the practice {that a} Los Angeles restaurateur put up on blocks and known as Carney’s.

Now, Carney’s is a kind of locations the place everyone seems to be welcome and also you’re free to return as you're. Pre-pandemic, Carney’s solely had one rule posted on its door: “shirt required.” So far as I do know, footwear have all the time been elective at Carney’s.

However one factor that isn’t elective at Carney’s is cash. These burgers and scorching canine aren’t free as a result of, because the saying goes, there’s no such factor as a free lunch. And lunch is the place the difficulty begins for the person carrying a light white t-shirt with The Grateful Useless’s emblem on the entrance, and the band’s 1987 U.S. tour schedule on the again.

The Deadhead tries to pay for his lunch with a bank card. However the bank card isn't any good, or possibly the machine is on the fritz. The monetary points of this example are hazy.

“Do you've one other card?” the cashier asks.

“No, man, sorry,” The Deadhead says. “That’s my solely card.”


The Deadhead checks his pockets.

“I obtained a buck. Are you able to attempt the cardboard once more?”

The cashier tries the cardboard once more. Everybody in line crosses their fingers. Truly, I’m the one one with my fingers crossed, so far as I do know. However I do sense an power within the line, a vibe.


A lunch vibe.

The Carney’s Neighborhood is rooting for the Deadhead to get his lunch. Or, possibly we’re simply rooting for the transaction to undergo so we are able to get our lunches. Level is, everybody on the practice is on the identical monitor, kind of.

Sadly, the monetary and know-how communities are on the opposite aspect of this deal, and they are often fuckers.

“Sorry about that,” the cashier says. “We tried, proper?”

“All you are able to do,” The Deadhead says.

He turns to stroll away, however a voice calls out from the again of the road.

“I obtained this. I’ll pay for him.”

The voice belongs to a different Deadhead. He wears tie-dye shorts and a t-shirt that options The Grateful Useless’s iconic dancing bears.

Dancing Bear’s bank card works!

I supply Dancing Bear my spot in line for being so cool. The lady forward of me gives her spot too. However Dancing Bear isn’t being cool. He's cool. He declines our gives to skip the road, and returns to his spot behind two different clients.

The Deadhead joins Dancing Bear behind the road. Introductions are made. I catch their names. The Deadhead is Rick. Dancing Bear is Michael.

Certainly one of them lives within the space, the opposite works close by. Rick explains how he obtained into the “boat sport,” after getting out of the “journalism hustle.” Michael is within the accounting sport, so no clarification is required. Their dialog flows like a jam band performing for a pageant crowd.

Clearly, I got here right here for the best chili cheese fries in Los Angeles. However I obtained a Useless present too.

Isn’t that cool?
