I'm a Jinx...
Today I went out to grab a quick bite to eat since work (a.k.a. Hell) has been particularly busy. I got a sandwich and waited on line to pay for it. At the same time, some crazy lady (I promise, I will bring my picture phone EVERYWHERE with me from now on) barreled in the door of the deli muttering to herself. She came right up beside me (touching me, mind you) and started craning her neck to see behind the counter. I said, "Excuse me, please." She ignored me. I heard her saying, "Lucky! Lucky!" over and over. I knew then that I had a crack pot (or maybe a crack head) on my hands.
The cashier rang me up and the crazy lady said, "What's luckier? The snowmen or the snowglobe?" She was referring to scratch off lottery tickets. The counterwoman said, "Just one minute, please." and nodded in my direction as though to say "let me finish with her." The crazy woman reeled around on me and said, "YOU! Are you trying to jinx me or something?" I said, very calmly, "Yes. I am." Without skipping a beat she said, "You and the Asians! You try to jinx me all the time!" "You got that right!", I said as I left.
What a city!
UPDATE: I can't stop walking around at work saying, "Oh, that's messed up?, or Oh, you didn't get that?...me and the Asians want it that way." I'm just waiting for a call from the dreaded Human Resources, but it's cracking me up.
