James Summers Needs To Be More Ambitious Than Declaring Himself Boss of Denny’s

You have GOT to read the article on this one. Apparently, James Summers  walked into a Denny’s in Madison, Wisconsin and insisted that he was the new general manager. Then he made himself dinner (burger, fries and a soda). When Denny’s staff verified that he was not the new general manager, not that they ever believed he was despite his maroon tie and black trench coat or his briefcase, they demanded he pay the $10 for the meal. When he refused, he was arrested.

Of course, there were crack pipes in the brief case and a stun gun under that trench coat. Lord only knows why, since he never used any of that during the incident.

And though I’ve gotta give this guy points for trying, was impersonating a general manager of a Denny’s for a free dinner the best he could do? I mean, the price of the stun gun alone could have paid the $10 for the dinner. Depending on the stun gun, perhaps many times over. The brief case and/or the maroon tie might have as well.

Really, couldn’t James Summers have dreamed any bigger? Why not impersonate a new bank manager? Or the manager of a Porsche dealership? At the very least, why not impersonate a general manager of a bit nicer of a restaurant if he just wanted to get a free dinner?  Perhaps Applebees?

I mean, think about it. He got a burger, fries, and a soda. He even had to make them himself. It’s not really much of a haul for all his preparation (his carefully thought out story, his tie, and his briefcase of crack pipes). He probably could have done better.

David S. Atkinson enjoys typing about himself in the third person, although he does not generally enjoy speaking in such a fashion. However, he is concerned about the Kierkegaard quote "Once you label me you negate me." He worries that if he attempts to define himself he will, in fact, nullify his existence...
