Waiting On You Hand And Barefoot

, , , | Working | June 16, 2017

(I am a college student renting housing off campus. I am the only person in town at this point, so when I lock myself out of my house by accident, without a spare, I have to call a locksmith.)

Me: “Hi, sorry, I locked myself out of my house. I’m at [Address]. I’m so sorry to bother you.”

Locksmith: “That’s what we’re here for. Don’t worry about it. Unfortunately I’m out on another job right now so it will be half an hour. Why don’t you take a walk around the neighborhood?”

Me: “I’m not wearing shoes and it’s raining. But don’t worry about it; my porch is covered so I can wait here where it is dry and I have wifi.”

(I am wearing slippers, but I wouldn’t go for a stroll in them. Less than half an hour passes before the locksmith shows up.)

Locksmith: “I didn’t feel comfortable leaving you for so long, so I’m here early.”

Me: “Thank you so much.”

Locksmith: “Hey, I thought you said you didn’t have shoes!”

(I got back in my house, everything worked out, but don’t blame me if you decide to cut out on another job to help someone who explicitly said that waiting wasn’t a problem.)
