I am SO sure I just got yelled at by the Quiznos delivery guy…..
I am waiting for the elevator in the lobby of my office with another gentleman, ironically enough to go by Quiznos and Starbucks, when the Quiznos delivery guy comes into the lobby. The elevator “ding”s announcing its imminent arrival to our floor, and the Quiznos guy begins feverishly pressing the down button. I find his impatience to be no more than annoying until he cuts me off getting into the elevator. Now, I am not about the whole “let a lady get in first” thing, but I believe the standard “first come, first in” etiquette. Anyways, we reach the lobby, and AGAIN, the Quiznos guy (QG) tries to get out before I do—even though I am standing in front of him. I stop, shoot a vicious glance at him, and he then stops and extends his arm signaling me to get out first. I took a moment to stop myself from sticking my tongue out at him, and exited the elevator—none too happy. Well, QG was now walking behind me and, literally, shouts
“SAY THANK YOU!”
I turn my head slowly to confirm that he was NOT talking to me—but he was!
Me: “I’m sorry—what?”
QG: “Say thank you! Americans are educated. They say thank you.”
Me (with a quizzical look on my face): “What am I saying thank you for?”
QG: “For letting you off the elevator. You American, right?”
Me: “Uh huh…”
QG: “Americans have education. They say thank you. Americans very nice people.”
I am so freakin sure that this guy throwing sarcasm at me for not saying thank you after cutting me off and all but pushing me out of the elevator. Now, what I DIDN’T tell him was what a douche bag he was and that his mother did a very poor job of raising him. What I also did not do was spit on him. In fact, I just let him keep on talkin’ until he finally made it to his car. That should result in some good karma coming my way.
Also, I would like to share with you that I have found a new blog space! Yay! I am looking for a new template so I can make it really pretty—I am sick of this dark, dreary template. And it looks as though it is much easier to post pictures at my new location. I’m going to fool around with it for a couple days before I go public with it—but I am very excited! In the meantime, I will still fool around with this one and try to post Key West. Gainesville, on the other hand, will have to be on the new site. Long story.
