convos with strangers

conversations with strangers #120

PHL airport

I’d been traveling for approximately 9.5 hours already and still had one more flight to go before I could rest my weary head on my own pillow. I decided I’d earned a snack. I grabbed a bag of Chex Mix snack mix.

Lady worker: *eyes my snack* Would you like a drink with that?

Me: Oh, no thanks. I’ve got a water bottle already.

Lady worker: That’ll be $4.

Me: *pauses while pulling out cash to sneeze into the crook of my elbow*

Lady worker: Bless you. We have tissues and allergy medicine for sale over there. *winks*

Me: *smiles* You’re a good salesman, but I’m all set on that front too.

And with that transaction completed, I returned to my gate where the plane had begun boarding and I was one step closer to home.
