Why I Love My Neighbours -Tuesday's Edition

Scene: Me and a well dressed older man in my apartment elevator. I've got my mail in my hand and he is holding a large platter of deli sandwiches.

Him: I'm the sandwich guy.
Me: Yes, I can see that.
Him: They are for a meeting. It's my turn to bring sandwiches.
Me: Well, they look very good. *being polite*
Him: Well, they are NOT for you. *being totally serious*

Another lady enters the elevator.

Her: Mmmmmm...whenever I see food I feel hungry. Those look delicious.
Him: *hostile look*

I know that you and the other lady then then joined forces to kick his ass and eat his sandwiches. That's really the only satisfying ending to this story. :)

Ern said...

I had something else to say, but I TOTALLY second Susie. That would have been the perfect ending.

You should have tripped him as he exited the elevator, sandwiches and all... =)

Or felt a sudden sneeze come on. Oh wait, they were probably covered...
Ok, tripped him would have been a good option. That or you and the lady each snagged one and ate it in front of his horrified eyes as you both smacked your lips and made that satisfied yummy sound. :)

I love people like that. They provide such entertainment for us "regular " folks.

Sounds like the sandwiches weren't the only thing that was tightly wrapped.....
