Funny: Do you sell frozen treats with chocolate in them?
Granted I know that people from other countries move to the United States but this guy was clearly either on a REALLY long bike ride or he just moved to the USA and hasn’t really adapted yet.
(Late in the evening a guy rides up to the gas station on a bicycle and chains it up to a pole by our ice chest outside. Then the guy entered the store. This guy is wearing a rain coat and carrying a hiking backpack).
Guy: (In a heavy Russian accent) Do you sell sports drinks like with flavors and stuff in it.
Me: Yea they are in the cooler there is all kinds.
Guy: Awesome I haven’t been able to stock up in awhile.
(He runs over to the cooler doors then comes back and sets 6 Powerades on the counter).
Guy: You guys have so many kinds. It amazes me these colors. Do you sell frozen treats? I would really like a frozen treat maybe with chocolate.
Me: Yeah so the ice cream cooler is over there.
Guy: So cool a whole cooler full of frozen treats.
(He goes over to the cooler and comes back with a cone)
Me: Your total is $$$
Guy: Okay now I just need to find a way to pay you.
(The guy sets down this monster backpack and pulls out a small baggy that looks like it originally held tooth picks).
Guy: Here are your monies.
Me: I have to say that is pretty interesting how you hold onto your money. Seems pretty covert since who would look in that baggy for money.
Guy: (Chuckles) Covert, yeah, covert-ops (laughs) covert-ops.
Me: Well you are all set.
Guy: Okay I say bye now (walks over door and then waves at me)
1) Who walks around looking for frozen treats with chocolate? Has this guy never entered a gas station?
2) Why are you caring your money around in this weird way?
3) Where are you riding your bike from? Or to?
4) Why are you wearing a rain poncho when it isn’t even raining out?
5) I felt like this guy was on a cross continental bike ride like he just rode his bike from Russia through Alaska then Canada and somehow ended up in Michigan.
