1 lunch break; 3 odd interactions


#1

Wednesday lunch is my favourite lunch. I go into town, pick up my comics and then treat myself to a Pret. Brilliant.

The person who served me in Pret said “enjoy your life!” in a have-a-nice-day way. Then looked at me in complete surprise that they’d said that.

Someone came and sat opposite me. There were plenty of free tables but they just sat on the same two-seater as me. Didn’t ask if it was free, just plonked down and started eating.

On the way back to work, someone stopped me and asked if I knew where the Motorpoint Arena was. I gave them directions and they said “oh, is it near the ice arena?”. I said “Yes, it IS the ice arena”. Their face dropped, they said “Don’t be stupid!” and walked off.

It’s an odd day when you encounter three weirdos on your lunch break and none of them were in the comic book shop.

i went in there yday and it was really nice. when there’s a game on they all make comments about the football without replying to each other as much (as opposed to when there’s no footy on so they have a proper discussion).

it was like being sat with old men in a pub watching a screen and just sort of randomly exclaiming their thoughts to the air.

well done, football thread people
