People crack me up…
5 people walk in the store….
Me: ” Hello there”
Me: “Let me know if there is something you want to try?”
Me: Stare off a moment…Make direct eye contact with one…Hello
Me: One of them will say hi dang it! Ten year old boy staring at me now…”Would you like to try something?”
Him: Silence…grabs mom’s shirt (what am I gonna attack him?)
Me: “Just let me know when anyone is ready”
Them: Still silence
Me: Walk off a minute…mumble to self, “they all can’t be deaf”
Them: still just staring off at the menu
Me: Wander back. One more try…”Any one decided yet?”
Them: Silence…. They are killing me!!!
An eternity later (or 10 minutes if looking at a real clock – no joke)
Me: Knock me over with a feather…they do talk!! Ok, at least one of them…..
Turns out they all can talk!
Just not to me.
I’m pretty sure I showered this morning.
sniff sniff…. yep
Sad part is….. People do this all the time to us… never acknowledging us.. I have to teach the kids not to take it personally.
Even sadder? These people actually turned out really nice once they ate they ice cream. Then they started talking to me and laughing.
People are odd creatures….
~~~till we laugh again~~~
