Today marks my return to my out-of-the-house work place. Just for two days this week, while I'm inducted [yet again] into the job I've done for the past 4 years ... but who am I to argue ...?
Anyhow ... I thought this was a good time to share another of my most memorable and favourite 'overheards' from the campus. One which always makes me grin when I recall it ...
It was March 2009 and I was having my break in the Student Union Café when I spotted a student waiting to pay for his food but there was no-one attending the tills.
After a short wait, the serving assistant appeared and gave this intriguing and classic apology:
Server: Sorry … I was waylaid with a vegan. ???
Next time I'm late for something, caught in a tricky spot or have fallen short of my responsibilities and am in need of an excuse ... I think i'll give that one a whirl ... how about you? ;-)
p.s: It's my turn to do some copying here over at my other blog The Copy + Paste Project today, so if you get chance, drop by and see me there too. There's time-trial poetry involved! How can you resist?
