Lets say you see a paper sitting across from you. To be polite you ask the person (in this case, a guy with a pulsating vein in his head) sitting in the seat next to the paper if he's using it. He tersely responds: "It's mine. You can borrow it till 7th avenue."
Do you? :
a) Give up your pursuit of the paper and quietly give him dirty looks....till 7th avenue.
b) Though you haven't read it, tell him about all the awesome articles in that issue.
c) Take his paper angrily and proclaim highlander style 'there can be only one.........paper owner.'
