So I was in line today at the deli counter at Safeway. There was a guy in front of me who hadn’t yet been helped, and then there was me. But this isn’t about me or the guy in front of me. This is about the lady who was already being helped.
This lady…we’ll call her Lady, for short, apparently couldn’t decide what she wanted, because she was talking to the sandwich-making-lady about her different options, and she even sampled a couple different cheeses. Finally she got down to what she wanted, and the sandwich-making-lady went about making that samich. Apparently it was a turkey samich because just as she was about to finish up, the sandwich-making-lady asked Lady if she wanted cranberries on the sandwich. To which she decided, Yes, she did, but could she please move the cheese to the other side of the sandwich and put the cranberries over the turkey, not on the other side, which housed the avocado.
And then Lady asked if sandwich-making-lady could cut the sandwich diagonally.
“I always cut the sandwiches diagonally,” the sandwich-making-lady said not so patiently.
Lady’s lucky I didn’t kick her in her shins.
