near our office is a full service deli/restaurant/catering business. excellent [though a little pricey] food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. this morning i stopped in to grab a bacon/egg/cheese croissant in the hopes of staving off another shitty shitty day. so far it has worked. here was my exchange:
me-walking up to line to pay for my croissant sandwich, turkey wrap [for lunch-pictured above]; i grabbed a bag of chips
old guy: WHOA you kinda crept up there on me
me: uh sorry
old guy: didnt even hear you until you crinkled those chips. all stealth-like
me: uh yup
me-dropped bag of chips cos im awesome, then bent down to get them
old guy-does old man heave trying to help me with chips
me-placed chips back on counter before old guy reaches floor
old guy: whoa youre a fast one there
old guy: what are you 25?
old guy: wow. young and fast
me: umm k bye
usually when people try and make small talk just for the sake of hearing their own dribble it annoys me. today however, it was pretty hilarious and all i could do not to straight up laugh at the guy.
and the croissant was DELICIOUS
*edit* the pinwheels were lacking but i will definitely attempt the sliced turkey-slaw-rollup idea in the future.
