I got paid yesterday. Today, I cashed my check and went shopping: shoes, socks, underwear, pants, saline solution, etc. I came home and got ready for work.
Mike’s sister Ruth works at McDonald’s and maybe it’s just a hunch but I think she likes me. Or either she is just being very, very, very, very nice.
I was on fry duty tonight and she comes over there and practically does half the job for me. I don’t need the help, but I don’t want to be rude and tell her I can handle it myself. She is as sweet as she can be, a real soft-spoken person. I’m nice to her and I know I can trust her.
Well, while she was helping me with the fries, I noticed she had been there for about five minutes. So, I said, “What are you doing tonight?”
Now I meant, “What position are you working tonight at McDonald’s?” because I know they didn’t tell her to cover fries.
She said with a smile, “Well, nothing. I just work until nine and then I’m free after that.”
Then it hit me. It sounded like I was asking her out. I said, “No, I mean what are you doing at McDonald’s?” She looked down and said, “Oh, I’m just stocking up, they haven’t given me a register yet.”
She stayed there about a second longer and then went to the back. I hope I didn’t hurt her.
We leave at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow. I better get some sleep.
