Scene: Popular chain restaurant near the office. Heavy business area frequented by many professionals. Lots of wait staff on hand preparing for a busy lunch. It's 11:30, just before the main lunch hour. Grandy and Co-Worker friend are having a serious lunch.
Cast: Grandy, Co-Worker Friend (CWF), Freaky Waitress (Freaky)
Grandy and CWF have just ordered their meals and within 5 minutes, the fun ensues.
Freaky: Can I get you ladies anything else?
Grandy: Nope, we're good thanks!
Freaky: Great!! Well, please let me know if I can get you anything else.
CWF: We will, thank you.
...two minutes go by...
Freaky: How are you ladies doing? Alright? Can I get you anything?
Grandy & CWF: ::blank stares at eachother::
Grandy: Thanks, we're good.
...another two minutes goes by...Grandy and CWF are huddled talking about personal things.
Freaky: ::just appearing:: Aren't you girls thirsty? You're not drinking very much?
CWF: Well, we're fine. Thank you.
Freaky: GREAT!! Be sure to let me know if I can get you anything!
Grandy: Will do.
...about 5 minutes goes by this time...
Freaky: How are you ladies doing? Can I get you anything?! How is everything?
Grandy: Really? Maybe our lunch? Maybe? If it's ready of course.
Freaky: Oh that! It should be out any minute.
Grandy: Alrighty then. Thanks!!
...2 minutes...Lunch arrives (delivered by someone else).
Freaky: (literally before Grandy gets her first bite in) How is everything? Good? Is it good? Can I get you anything else?!
::blank stares...almost as if we're looking for the candid camera::
Grandy: I think we're okay, but we haven't tried it yet.
Freaky stands there...waiting...staring...watching first bite.
Freaky: Well? How is it? It's good, huh? It looks real good.
Grandy: (with mouth full) Uh-Hmmm.
Freaky: Can I get you anything else?
Grandy: (still chewing and shaking head) Uh-mmm.
By now Grandy is already seeing a Saturday Night Live skit being played out in front of her. CWF is astonished at the enthusiasm of Freaky. There were at least 4 more visits from Freaky before we could even make a significant dent in our meals. It was a strange
...end of the meal...need the check...no sign of freaky.
Where was she? She was off stalking another table.
It took 20 minutes to get the check...from someone else...but the entertainment value was well worth it.
Oh! And did Grandy mention Freaky looked just like this?
This is one thing I love about having this blog. I can find the humor in most things.
