I did the tumblr thing at work!
I was stocking sandwiches and this girl was sitting in the tables next to my area. She was talking to her grandma on the phone, and was obviously having a hard time ending the conversation. I started paying attention when she slid halfway down her chair and dropped her head to the table.
“Grandma I have to go,” she said, “no really” followed by some long comment from grandma and she makes this grasping motion in the air with her free hand and starts to look pretty desperate. Finally she goes “Grandma I’m in church! I have to go the choir’s starting!” And the look on her face was like ‘oh wait fuck im in a grocery store there are no choirs anywhere’
So I started singing O Come All Ye Faithful in latin cuz it was the only song I could think of and she goes ‘By grandma I love you!’ and hangs up and looks at me like ‘THANK YOU SO MUCH’
I say ‘no problem!’ and then figure what the hell so as she grabs her coffee I say ‘I like your shoes’
and she goes ‘thank you they’re presidential’ and walks off
there was this moment where she was halfway to the exit where she froze and glanced back and I think we realized at the same time we kinda got it right but not really so she kept walking and I had to get back to work.
I WAS SO CLOSE TO MAKING A TUMBLR CONNECTION
