Overheard

25 May

While walking back from the sandwich shop where I bought a Philadelphia hoagie, I was walking behind (about five feet, maybe 2 seconds) a little old lady. She stopped at the light of a busy intersection. Noticing she didn’t press the button on the lightpole for the pedestrian light, I pressed the button.

Oldlady: Do you really think that helps?
Me: sure it does!
Oldlady: This is a long light I’ve been standing here for 5 minutes!
Me: OK
Time passes about 20 sec.
Me: OK our turn now.

    Life is so hard for some people. The answers are right there in front of them. But they just never find them. I bet tomorrow it’s the same thing for this lady.

    Pounding on the button ALWAYS makes it go faster, it gives you something to do while your waiting anyway. It’s so seldom I get to play with “technology” like light buttons too!

    It’s all about perspective, isn’t it? In her mind, she HAD been there for five minutes. It’s just that her mind hadn’t caught up with reality. God, I hope I never get to that point.

    That’s a funny story. I agree with Deene, she must have been flirting at you.
