Jan! This story is HILARIOUS! I fell of my chair laughing!
Thanks for being YOU! Can I be your neighbor?
Has Safeway really banned you from the store?
This reminds me of a story I heard, and never forgot:
A tired guy is sitting in the airport's waiting-to-board area.
He had nabbed the last seat available! Phew! Collapsing into the seat, he had unknowingly sat on a newspaper. He just plopped down.
A new guy comes along, and asks: "Are you reading that newspaper?"
The tired guy stands up, turns the page, sits back down...and says, "Yes I am".
End of story. I wish I had been there, and I'm waiting for the day to try it!
And now I'm adding your scenario to my waiting list!
