(For the record, I haven’t actually decked anyone in a long time. I think.)
Do you remember the Humpy-the-Post-office-Guy? (if not, click here) Wellllll……I went into the post office the other day. (HAHHAH.) It’s too bad there was only a few people in there. So I get up to the counter, and the Teller points at me and says something to the other tellers that I didn’t catch. (I by the way, had forgotten about Humpy, momentarily) All the tellers get this HUGE smile on their faces and BURST into laughter. One of them yells “You better not stand too close, or she’ll deck you.” This went right over my head:
Teller – You don’t remember that?
Me -Threatening to deck someone? No.
Teller - That guy the other day.
Me -OH. That guy. Yeah. He was humping my leg.
By this time one of the Tellers disappeared and reappeared with the Post Master who was laughing so hard I thought he was going to split.his.pants.
PM -You know you were the talk of the whole office.
PM -Yeah! But, really that guy is hard of hearing.
Me -Um, ok, but he was standing so close to me I could feel his gender.
PM & Tellers – OHHHHHHHH we didn’t know that.
Me -Uh, yeah, and I had moved away several times, even offered for him to cut me in line, yet he continued.
PM – OH we had no idea.
Me – Yeah, and I am pretty sure him leaning in to whisper in my ear, so close that he is touching me, has nothing to do with his deafness.
PM & Tellers – OH! (weird silence)
Me - Yeah. Anyway, I’ll see you guys soon, and we will see who else I can yell at!
The entire post office erupts in laughter.
BTW – a woman in line butted in to say how she would have kicked his ass. UM, NO. We don’t beat on the elderly. We reprimand them. Stupid chick.
Hell, when I’m that old, I will be copping a feel. I just hope I will still have the ability to acknowledge a hint at that age.
Photo dump time!
Theses are from the other day. I went for a really long walk.
Have I mentioned I like abandoned buildings ?
