A Cautionary tale
Life Insurance........Life Insurance
Once I’d gone to pick up a friend at Heathrow airport and while I waited I went to buy a coffee from this guy. I thought he looked Iranian and then he asked the man in front of me ‘Vot vood you like?’ and I knew he was. So I said salam and chatted to him a bit while he made me a coffee. I went away from his stand thinking he was sweet (because he had not charged me for the coffee) but maybe a bit on the simple side (because he had not said much and had spent the whole time staring at me with a wide open mouth). Life Insurance
It was some time later when I paid a visit to the ladies’ that I realised it’s all very well to in your haste to get to the airport in time, grab and put on the first items of clothing you lay your hands on, but unfortunately the top you grab may turn out to be completely see-through.

marieh said...

did you leave the ladies?I hope you had a spare cardigan with you!then see if you still can get a free coffee

Yes Selly I did have trousers on. At least I hope I did or I was seriously conned by that guy. I mean it’s ok to have a look at someone’s boobies and give them a free coffee but if they don’t have trousers on either I really think the gentlemanly thing would be to at least offer them a donut or a muffin as well.

Hi Loopy, no the coffee wasn’t particularly nice. He could have been a bit more generous with the milk if you ask me. But considering the immense amount of pressure he must have been under at the time, I think he actually did quite well.

You’re lucky akg. Since I’m not as blessed as you are in that department, I can only use my powers at day times when there’s enough light around.

You’re welcome Negar, maybe you can use this technique in your next sisters in Islam party ;-)

;-) the doctor is speechless.

Yes I did leave the ladies Marieh and yes I did have a cardigan with me which I put on despite of it being a hot day. But I did not try the coffee guy again, I thought it was best to leave the poor man in peace after the minor heart attack that I had probably caused him.

Ah, I laughed! I did once wear a pretty transparent dress with no undies to play in the yard (but I was 3, and my outraged mom brought me inside quickly). These days I am safe because I put on many layers.
But if the coffee were good....hmmmm...

Shirin said...

Yes Foulla, exactly ;-)

Jarvenpa, I don’t think it’s something that I would make a habit of doing but it’s good to know about these things in case one ever gets stuck somewhere with no money and desperately needs to get coffee :-)

Em, No problem, I’ll change that.
