Danger! New Kid on the Block!
A man walked into my office yesterday afternoon (after I'd taken a good look and pressed the switch that opens the door!) and proceeded to tell me after mentioning that he needed money and food, that he had just served 25 years for murder. I kept the smile on my face, advised him as to what he should do next, gave him the apple I had in my bag, told him we had no money on the premises and sent him on his way!!
On speaking to my boss later on, I learned that this man is not a newbie to our office and was trying it on (yes he did serve the time!) as he knew there was a new kid on the block!
Well he obviously found out very quickly although he was quoting Jesus at me in every other sentence, that this new kid on the block is not an easy touch! I've dealt with his type before although not I must admit, a convicted murderer. But he served his time so I am not judging.
News of a new kid on the block travels fast!
