Are you 18?

By Shadowgate

…...

Melanie Teller just called adult swim at the neighborhood pool. She looked around and saw a person she thought may not have been 18.

She asked him "are you 18?"

He replied "yes" and she took his word for it.

Then someone else asked "wait a minute, how do we know this kid is 18?"

Melanie answered "well I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt."

The person in question got mad and screamed "I AM 18 I REALLY AM AND IT'S BETWEEN ME AND THE FUCKING LIFEGUARD!"

A man responded "don't you talk to my wife like that. Excuse me miss lifeguard my name is Ted Douglas and that's my wife Tanya and we pay the required fee to use the pool so we want the adult swim rule enforced."

Melanie said "okay and I have done that. Now I asked him and he sounded honest enough to me."

The angry 18 year old said "my name is Max Phillips and I'm 18 and that's the truth. Bye!"

Max started to swim toward the deep end.

Tanya said "now hold on he just cussed at me is that going to be tolerated?"

Melanie said "let's just drop the whole thing."

As Max got out of the pool and went to the water fountain both Tanya and Ted followed him.

Tanya yelled "HEY MISTER YOU DON'T GET AN ATTITUDE WITH ME BECAUSE MY HUSBAND WON'T TOLERATE IT!"

Max flipped off Tanya and Ted.

Ted snapped "you're a punk and I want to see your ID because I don't think you're 18."

Max said "I'm not showing you a motherfucking thing."

Melanie came out and asked "what's the problem?"

Ted said "I want identification from this little shit."

Max replied "fuck your mother asshole."

Melanie told Tanya and Ted to leave the pool. They said they would file a complaint with the homeowners association.

THE END
