Overheard in a Restaurant

Once a week, ampoule Christina comes down for lunch. Yesterday we went to Rumbi. While we were waiting for our meal, more about we could hear the conversation of some people who were still in line. It went something like this:

1: “Did you hear about Jim’s cell phone?”

2: “No. What?”

1: “He lost his cell phone this morning at the Sandy TRAX station. And some homeless guy picked it up and called me.”

2: “Really? A homeless guy?”

1: “Yeah, I got this call, and said, ‘Is this Jim?’ and the guy was like ‘No. But I found this phone. And I’m homeless and wondered if you guys could help me out, in exchange for the phone.’ So he was totally negotiating to get the phone back. I told him that I would try to get a hold of Jim, and I’d have Jim call him back. So Jim’s got to call the homeless guy back and try to negotiate the return of his phone. I’m sure he wants it back, so it will be interesting to see what happens.”

And with that, they moved out of hearing distance.

Poor Jim. Now he’s got to schedule the drop. Paying ransom to get the phone back.

What a random conversation.

  1. LOL! That’s hilarious. It would, indeed, be interesting to see what will happen. How on earth would you handle that situation?
