I looked around to see a guy looking at me uncertainly. I stared at him, not able to place his face. Tentatively I asked, "Do I know you?"
His eyes kind of narrowed and he froze and something seemed off. I saw his tray of food. I saw his shirt... decorated with a Chick-fil-A logo.
Took me a few more beats, but I caught on. We did not know each other. HE WAS A CHICK-FIL-A EMPLOYEE TRYING TO GIVE ME THE FOOD I'D ORDERED. An interaction that goes right hundreds of times a day at the restaurant. Not this time, suckers! Nice try!
I told Seth about this and he said I'm turning into my mother.
