Let’s Play a Game

14 Jul

Okay my friends – Let’s Play a Game.  Mom/dad went out to dinner the other night to a local hamburger place.  They sit at a table and mom always faces the door and looks around like a sniper – hilarious.  She sees this older gentleman – probably in his 60’s – sitting at a table across from them.  He has older clothes on, he has a beard and mustache, long hair and he’s using an iPhone.  Now mom said that picture didn’t look right in itself.  It was like he was trying to ‘look old and out of place’ but yet he was hip enough to have an iPhone.  That was what caught mom’s eye.

Then, mom saw him tell the waitress that he was leaving his briefcase on the table, he was going to the bathroom and would pick it up on the way out.  Now look at that briefcase.  Really?  Awkward looking huh?  Clue two that caught mom’s eagle eyes.

Mom watched the guy go to the bathrooms, come out and walk right beside his table, look at the briefcase and proceed to pay his bill at the register.  Then, the man left the restaurant.  He walked right out the door and left…. without the briefcase.

Did you hear the bells going off in mom’s head then?  Odd – very odd.  Of course mom is giving dad a play by play of the activities.  Mom calls the waitress over and tells her that the guy left and to bring the situation to the manager’s attention.  You would, right?  Mom sees the waitress walk over to the manager, tell him something, the manager laughs and then the waitress comes back.  The waitress says that the manager was going to give the guy a couple of minutes to come back.  W.T.H.  Really?  Then the waitress says, “He looked like a nice guy”.  DOUBLE W.T.H.  Nice guy?  Well heck Ted Bundy looked like a nice guy too.  And??

So by this point mom is shaking her head and ready to call in the bomb squad herself.  Then something more mysterious happened about 15 minutes later.  This woman came into the restaurant.  She was holding one of those huge refillable drink cups like you would get at 7-11 or some gas station.  She stops the waitress and asks her to fill it up.  The waitress does it and gives it back to her.  On the way out of the restaurant, this lady picks up the briefcase and leaves.  This woman is walking – she didn’t drive to the restaurant.

Now you tell me what this is all about.  With everything that is happening in today’s society, what could this had possibly been?  AND to top it off, the management here didn’t have a care about it.  So let’s discuss – put on your investigator hat and let’s play a game of what (A) was in the briefcase and (B) what was going on.

    Whoa…not sure what to make of this story. Since I just got through binge watching the latest season of The Americans, I’m thinking some sort of spy thing? 😱

      It was so weird for sure! Mom said she could write a book about this situation – it was that strange for sure. XOXO – Bacon

        Sounds like it. I’m surprised she didn’t go following them like 007. Oh wait, she probably doesn’t have a Q to provide groovy spy toys. 😉

    This is a challenge. Could it be drugs? Don’t think so. The restaurant seemed to know what was happening and thought it was no big deal. I’d venture to say some stuff(that’s a very descriptive word) involved with the day to day running of the restaurant. Like receipts for tax purposes given to the part time bookkeeper.

      I think the manager laughed because he thought mom was nuts for being worried about the briefcase – it was that weird. And no one else sitting around us noticed it so they were concerned about it. And the woman that picked it up – weirder than the guy that left it. Still shaking my head at this ordeal for sure. XOXO – bacon

    Clandestine for sure! With all the craziness going on, I would be alerted and cautious too. But definitely something spyish! I dislike the suspicion by which we have to live our lives now. 😦

    Probably something unspectacular – like he is divorced, his grown up daughter still lives at mom’s, so he cannot go to her house, but she is a good daughter and does his laundry …

      Snorts with piggy laughter. Yeah. Laundry. That’s it. Sure. XOXO – Bacon

        Well, when lecturing doctors here, they teach them, when they hear hooves not to think of zebras (or even unicorns) – but to think of what is more common first – horses …
        Of course that is just an image. But you get the drift. The more common thing is a man leaves dirty washing for a female. She could also be his daughter, married to a man who hates his father in law – or he hating her husband – and she does the laundry for him secretly.

    Seriously? It was a drop, for sure! Either drugs or money for drugs or ransom. The dude was probably hiding somewhere watching to be sure it got picked up by the right person. My Mom said she would have gone and looked inside!

      My mom was like an eagle scout this day watching everything and then telling daddy a play by play. It was totally weird. I just have to wonder what was inside of that briefcase. XOXO – Bacon

    “Mom/dad went out to dinner the other night to a local hamburger place”

    LOL… you called Steak n Shake a “hamburger place!” I remember the commercial where they took away the cook’s grillmaster pin because he called them hamburgers instead of steakburgers!

        No problems my evil friend. So what do you think was inside of the mysterious bag?? XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts with piggy laughter. Well this place has somewhat good burgers at cheap prices (especially when mom has coupons). As far as customer service though – hilarious and I snort with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Weirder than weird my Mom says but definitely suspicious/weird. Drugs? Items to be fenced? Money to be laundered (at the Laundromat of course)…….who knows but the management should DEFINATELY been a bit more concerned. These days people are leaving bombs in spots just to see how many people they can wipe out. Pays to be cautious – that manager wasn’t and it’s a good thing it was NOT a bomb…………

    Hugs, Sammy

      Exactly! He thought mom was the weirdo for complaining about the unattended bag. And did I mention that said restaurant is right off of the interstate which would have made a powerful statement. XOXO – Bacon

    The manager surprises me. Here, we take that sort of thing seriously. I think he was irresponsible. He has a duty of care to his customers and staff. A suspicious package should be dealt with as a suspicious package.

      Exactly Auntie Sharon. Mom/dad said they are so disappointed with the management at this restaurant. It could have turned very badly. XOXO – Bacon

    I don’i know what that was about but you are lucky nobody wants to blow up a steak and shake, although I’m not sure why not.

    I would vote for drugs….. or maybe the man and the woman had a deal what I cannot describe in public and to place the Wallet on the restaurant table was something like Escrow Service?

      It definitely was something weird brother. I was shocked and astonished when dad told me about it. The management needs a whack in the head like whack a mole. XOXO – Bacon
