Hungry "Sign Guy"
A lot of times while driving around my town, I see people staring at me. My first thought is “What are you looking at?”, but then I realize they aren’t looking at me, they are looking at my vanity plate which says CHKFL-A. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked if I’m the owner of the area Chick-fil-A. My response is always “No, I just love Chick-fil-A”.
Well, the road I live off of is getting re-done. A few weeks ago, a worker on the road who holds the Stop/Slow sign was flagging a few of us through. As I was getting ready to pass him, he held up his hand to his mouth as if he was eating a sandwich. He then started rubbing his stomach like he was hungry. (It was around lunch time.) It took me a few seconds, but I got it. He saw my plates!
When I came back that day, as I passed, he held up another fast food restaurant's bag. I then put my thumbs down to him and he laughed. Well, this afternoon, I gave "the sign guy" and his buddies a surprise when I showed up with Chick-fil-A for all of them for lunch! I think I shocked them. They thanked me and I went on my way. I then had to come up the road again and as I passed "the sign guy” mouthed "We love you!" I just laughed! They have been working really hard, so I'm glad I could give them a little treat today!
