Lowe’s, and the accidental handshake.
05.22.2012 § 3 Comments
Went to Lowe’s last night to have some keys made and met a very nice gentleman named John. He’s worked at Lowe’s since 2008 and used to be a pilot before he retired.
We had a nice chat as he made my keys, which ultimately led to the awkward moment of what I presumed to be an approaching handshake. Or as John would tell you, him actually reaching for my keys to put the master back on my key ring for me.
But, since we had just had such a lovely conversation, I thought to myself, well he wants to shake my hand for doing business with him … so that’s what I’m gonna do. Shake his hand.
As I reached for the handshake he goes, “No, all I want is your key ring. But we can shake hands after that.”
So we did.
And as I walked away he told me that I was the most entertainment he’d probably have all evening.
I told him that I was sure I would be.
