Funny Story


Let's talk about something else, okay?


Yesterday after school, I was feeling pretty low. So I stopped by the Starbucks near my bank and got a green iced tea and an oatmeal raisin cookie (what I really wanted was a big ol' carmel mocha latte and a cream cheese danish, but I restrained myself).


So, since I didn't have lunch and I was pretty hungry, I snarfed that cookie down between the Starbucks and the credit union, and then hurried in to get some much-needed funds. As soon as I got in line, I realized that I had cookie crumbs on my upper lip.


Just as this middle-aged, appliance repairman-type guy looked up at me, I was taking my tongue and licking my upper lip. Mmmmmm....


Oops.


He did a double-take, smiled at me real friendly-like, and left the credit union, still smiling. He probably went home to his wife and said, "Babe, I still got it."
How do I always manage to get myself into these situations? (shaking head)
Have a good Tuesday.

That guy probably spent the rest of his day with a smile on his face and a spring in his step. You made his day and no harm was done.

I wonder how often we misread signals or "send" signals that are misread by others.

Happy to hear today is better.

You made that guy's day...maybe even his week.

I have no idea exactly what he thought, but I am sure he didn't know it was an oatmeal raisin cookie that had me so turned on!!!

That dude will be showing up at the credit union every day looking for you for a while. LOL

Jeff said...

I hope your days are getting better now. I was thinking about you this week as the kids are back to school this week here, too.

Oh, this is hilarious. If he only knew it was a cookie that you were thinking of and not him. ;-) A cookie sounds really, really good right now.

He could have left there thinking that he hopes to bump in to you again as he went home to his millionaire mansion that he lives in alone.
You never know!

Kentucky Girl said...

hehehe! That is funny, I'll bet he really thought he was something else after that! LOL

Everyone - I haven't dared go back to the credit union for fear he is sitting in the parking lot waiting for me! Just kidding, the truth is I have very little money left in that account.....

Thanks,Birdman....now I'm going to wonder ALL my life if HE was my millionaire!!

If it makes you feel better a male guard at the prison hit on me today! Talk about misunderstandings!!!!!!!

Brother Dave said...

J - You should have gotten "the big ol' carmel mocha latte and a cream cheese danish."

OK… I know what you are thinking:

How dare you "should" on me.

HoosierGirl5 said...

David - I wouldn't mind if a male prison guard hit on ME....what was the problem? ;)

Dave - That was a REALLY bad joke!!!
