Greener Pasture

My friend resigned from our office for shall we say a greener pasture with another Call Center. She is fondly called Mommy J by most of our officemates. Her name is Juliet, the ever loyal partner of Romeo. She had been with our Call Center for almost five years. I know it is not easy for her to go. I had invited her for lunch and we had a wonderful time together. Our officemates and I felt sad of her resigning but anyway we are still neighbors. She is just a text message away.

I had many fond memories of my friend but my unforgettable is us having breakfast at one of the restaurants one morning after work shift. I guess you would agree with me when you have someone you are comfortable being with. The two of you would never run out of stories to tell. After the sumptuous breakfast we gathered our things and went out of the restaurant. We were slowly itching away from the restaurant. Continuously laughing and sharing the stories I could not remember the topic, when suddenly Juliet said. "Hey! We forgot to pay!"

We rushed back in to the restaurant. We were met by a smiling waiter at the door. We immediately went to the lady cashier apologized for inadvertently going out forgetting to pay. We laughed and laughed until we were almost crying narrating to the lady cashier what happened. The lady cashier was thankful we remembered saying had we not came back. They will pay for what we ordered. Gosh! I just could not think of the humiliation, had the cashier sent someone after us. I guess she did not because we are regular customers of the restaurant.

To my friend Juliet, I will always remember all those happy days we had. Wishing you ALL the BEST at your new place of work!

Hi JP,
I can't stop laughing to hear you just went away without paying after enjoying the breakfast with your friend...
I believed it would be a sweet funny memory to both of you after you both apart as an officemate...

That is such a funny story! A few people are honest like you two!

This happens quite few times, it happens mostly due to the arguments we having about something while leaving cafe. Well, we had to get back not only to pay but also bring back our laptops or cells! LOL

Good wishes for her in new appointment.

@Country Mouse Studio- I will miss but I am happy for her because she will get a bigger salary compared to mine. I teased her to take me to lunch soon as she received her first pay.:)@Stephaine- I agree. :) Welcome to my blog. @Cheqna-We were actually laughing so hard when we get to the cashier. The lady cashier laughed with us too. (lol)

Jolly Princess said...

@NENSA MOON-I laughed on Juliets facial expression. She was the one who remembered we forgot to pay.:)@Jill Wellington - Yes, she is fun to be with. And workaholic too.:)

Hi JP,

Ha ha ha ha .... (LOL)
It happened to me and my friend a few years ago.
The cashier silently approached us as we left the table of restaurant
and softly reminded us.

Jolly Princess said...

@WebbieLady-It was funny indeed.:) @Moonomo-Hahaha! One of my sis in laws used to leave her umbrella at a restaurant. @Multibrand - That was a good move from the cashier. Otherwise they might pay for what you ordered. :)
