Does jazz really make people think of cocaine?
« on: July 01, 2012, 02:57:04 PM »
I was at the checkout at Safeway yesterday, when I get into a conversation with my old jazz piano teacher, we're both talking about the gigs we've been doing, and he's telling me about various jazz groups he thinks I should listen to. We're so into it, that even after I've finished paying, I stand there for a minute or two behind the checkout (not blocking it or anything). Just then, the little shit behind me in line says, "can I get some cocaine, too?" and walks away. WTF? I don't even get it. As far as I know, the drug of choice for old boppers was heroine. Needless to say, I wouldn't even think of doing either one. It was obvious that this little man-bitch was trying to insult me, but it just didn't make any sense! Insults are one thing, but random comments attempting to be insults are just plain weird.

Jazz is a slang term for cocaine.  The kid wasn't insulting your fucking honor or whatever it is you're going on about.

Actually, it was one of those times where I didn't feel so much insulted as just confused. As if someone had tried to make an insult, but totally missed the mark. And we weren't even really using the word "jazz", just discussing certain musicians/tunes. The way he said it sounded like he was trying to be insulting, or sarcastic, but it just came off as random!
