A Microcosm Of Modern America In The Wendy’s Line

Posted on | January 30, 2010 at 11:44 pm | 2 Comments

Conversation overheard today at Wendy’s between two guys standing next to me in line (verbatim):

Guy 1: “Are you an actor?”
Guy 2: “Huh? No.”
Guy 1: “Because you look like that Snoop Dogg dude.”
Guy 2: [Who, actually, did not look to me like Snopp Dogg: Silence, shakes head slightly]
Guy 1: “He’s got a good act, that Snopp Dogg. Doesn’t he have a good act?”
Guy 2: [More silence, then:] “How tall are you?”
Guy 1: “6 foot 9″
Guy 2: “Wow.”
Guy 1: “You look like you’re about 6 foot 4″
Guy 2: [Who, in fact, looked to me considerably shorter than that, shakes head slightly:] “I have a 17-year old nephew who’s 6 foot 8.”
Guy 1: “Whew!”
Wendy’s counter guy to Guy 2: “Here’s your nuggets, sir!”
Guy 2: “Thanks!” [Walks away]
Guy 1: “Nice talking to you! Have a good one!”


Note: Guy 1 then went on to engage the Wendy’s counter guy and other diners in conversations I didn’t quite hear. I think there was something a little off about him. Or maybe he was just overly friendly.

Pet Peeve of the Day: The caps on the Safeway gallon milk jugs don’t work nearly as well as the ones on the King Soopers’ jugs. They are very hard to screw on and off.

    Should “Pet Peeve of the Day” be renamed now that the posts are no longer daily?

    I am quite certain I’ve been in line with that guy.
