I work with a girl named Latricia. She is very witty...I keep trying to convince her to quit Caribou and do stand up for a living.
Here is a story she related to me [with my emphasis bracketed]:
Latricia: Hey, want one of THESE? [She flung a couple of rectangular cards over her back as she walked by]
Jon: What are those? [bending down and inspecting the cards, then rising...]
Latricia: OK... [very irritated] I took this lady's order at the bou-thru [drive-thru], and she had like, 400 candy apples in the back of her car. I was like, "You working at the Fairgrounds this week, Ma'am?" Lady said [excitedly] "Oh yes!" Then she reached into the back of her car, and I was thinkin like "Yeah! she's gonna give me some fair tickets, coupons, or candy apples or summin. Then she popped her head back around and gave me these cards!"
Jon: [examining] Oh...a business card?
Latricia: Yeah! [angrily disappointed]. A business card! I was like "Get outta here ya carny!"
And that, ladies and gentlemen, kept me laughing throughout the whole day.
