On the other side of things... Last night was on a whole a decent shift. I was able to get everything done that I wanted to over supper, and working with Orlando for the first time since Sunday was a nice addition. I have something more to look forward to tonight as well, being that on our way home last night, he said me might keep Tom on drive through 'til midnight, since he already said he wouldn't be able to stay and help past then. On a weekend night, I would prefer drive through over line, because it's more of a chance to get dishes caught up, but at the same time, it's quite entertaining to see Tom get all frustrated when he has to be on drive through for longer than expected. I had a moment of personal interest last night too, when Orlando was in the office, and I went back there to see what he was doing. On the desk were some keys, and one caught my eye, for being different than the rest. At the same time I was reaching out to pick it up, I asked him "What do we need a dimple key for around here?", because indeed, it was one of those, and when I picked it up to examine it more closely, found it was actually for a Mul-T-Lock Interactive lock (possibly redundant). Surely of no great interest to anybody else there, but I've read about / seen those online, so it was quite interesting to see one in person. Further questioning (with me playing with the interactive element all the while) revealed that they were in fact his keys, and that one was to the front door of his building, which was even more interesting. This building here uses a Medeco. That doesn't come as much of a surprise, especially now that I've been paying more attention when going into places, and seeing that nearly every business around here (except for work... we're stuck with Best...) uses them, but to know that there is in fact a place in this city that uses a completely different style of lock is indeed really cool. Also, now that I've been noticing more, I like how the office downstairs gets a Schlage, and every unit (that I've noticed so far) have just some generic sort. Hell, though. For all I know, they neither notice or care, so long as it keeps the door locked. Maybe I'm just weird. Oh, and on a related note, in the same night, Orlando discovered and showed me that Mary has a good 20 spare front door keys, and a bunch of others, including keys to tubular locks, even though I've never seen one used in or around the building. Just interesting, I suppose.
As for anything else... I've told this story to Jen, Linda, and Orlando already, but I'll tell it here too, just because of what happened. On Thursday night, I was walking home from work on my own, and ended up crossing to the other side of the street. Down near 7-11, a random guy came up behind me on his bike, and said something, which I didn't hear. I turned around while saying "Sorry?", and he said "Oh, you're not Dave". Apparently this Dave is somebody he went to high school with (PURPORTEDLY), and from there to just down near the bank, he proceeded to ask me if I was bi (I told him no), tell me he was looking for some action, and that he'd heard in the past that there were several people at work (he must have noticed my bag, since it has a big logo and all) that swung both ways, and such. One would assume that from my telling him no and not really seeming interested in making conversation, he'd leave me alone, but then, just about where the steps are that you can take to walk down by the river, he asked "So, do you still wanna go f---?", and I told him no, and that I "was good". He took off after that, and I was left having a very quick walk the rest of the way home. Maybe it wouldn't be that unusual an occurrence in a larger city, but here, I have never been approached like that, and hope to never have it happen again, because... people are creepy.
I suppose otherwise though, I should finish this up, as Jen is surely waiting anxiously to read it, and we're not going to be going anywhere until she does. I'll just be sitting here, waiting for her to look over with a smile and say "Indeed"~
