Diving under the truck

By Lucia March 31, 2011

There were several people involved in this. The woman on the right came to get some lentil soup. She came back a few minutes later wondering if she had left her phone on our counter. No phone. I called it for her, hoping it would ring in her bag or her car, then I started making sandwiches for the mom and son in the middle of the picture.

Cue Chris, another regular customer, the guy on the left. From over on the sandwich station, I hear: “It’s under the truck!” Then out of the corner of my eye I see Chris taking off his jacket. In a few seconds the phone was back. I have lots of empathy for this situation, if you know me you know I have a bit of a bad track record with phones.
