Favourite “at work” memory | OK, so I bought a couple really nice designer shirts for work and one day one of them just kind of went missing. I figured I must have dropped it somewhere, whatever. Anyway, there are these nice old ladies that come take our bottles from the alleyway throughout service. One day, months later, I run into one of the bottle ladies at the back door and she’s wearing a shirt that’s IDENTICAL to mine and she just looks at me and says “Same shirt!”, and I’m like “Nice!”. At first I thought that she just had really nice taste in shirts but later realized that the shirt she was wearing used to be mine… finders keepers! It looked better on her, anyway.
