Pie Oh My!

, , , | Romantic | May 30, 2017

(I work maintenance at an apartment complex. My first call of the day is the unit of a married couple. The wife works from home. She answers the door and lets me in.)

Me: “You called for maintenance?”

Wife: “Yeah, the garbage disposal doesn’t work. Can you fix it?”

(She directs me to the kitchen, but keeps her head pointed away from the room. I ask a few troubleshooting questions. She answers them, but keeps her hand over her mouth and nose the whole time.)

Wife: “If you need me, I’ll be in my office down the hall. Don’t call me over here.”

(She heads off to her office and I start unpacking my tools. On the table I see a freshly baked pecan pie. A sizable note with large bold writing is propped up next to it.)

Note: “Do NOT even F****** touch! This is for your PARENTS’ anniversary! Don’t embarrass me like last year! Hugs and kisses, [Husband].”

(I fixed the disposal without much trouble. I don’t know if she was able to resist the allure of the pie, but I sure hope so. It smelled delicious.)
