Reverse Crapenstance - Asif, The San Francisco Jerk
I was staying in Bernal Heights with my friends Jonathan and Sadie for a couple of days. Jonathan mentioned this spaghetti place one night when we went exploring the area.
It looked interesting so I thought it would be a good idea to try it out one night.
They were both at work so I headed there myself. I walked down the hill to Emmy's Spaghetti Shack. I saw a huge line of people waiting for a table. I was starving and really in
the mood to try this place out. I went to the hostess and asked if it was possible to get a seat at the bar. She checked for a bit and came back with the news that a seat was
opening up at the bar and to stand close to snatch it up. Cool!
A man with his young daughter on his lap got up and headed over to a table where he sat with a group of people.
I sat down in the middle of 2 couples. A 20-something couple to my left and a 40-something couple to my right. The 40-something guy was being so annoying. Rock Lobster from the B52s was
playing and he was singing along to the woman he was with. He also yelled "WOOOOO SALAD!!!" when his salad came. Whatever, nerd.
I noticed a key in front of me on the counter. I wanted to avoid talking to this 40-something nerd singing and saying the lamest things. So I looked at the younger guy to my left and
asked "Is this your key?" He said "No." The 40-something looks at me and says "I know whose key that is!!!" He takes it from my hand and walks over to the guy whose seat I had taken.
They talk for a bit and the nerd comes back.
He says "That key belonged to that guy and he was really thankful." I glared at him and said "He's so that lucky YOU found it." He replies "Ohhhh, sorry I should've said you found it. His friend
was coming up here to borrow his car. If he had lost his key they would've been out of luck." I glared even harder this time and said "That's what happens when you're irresponsible."
His face dropped and that was the end of the conversation. Hahaaa.
I hadn't realized this was a Reverse Crapenstance until I told Jonathan and Siegel about the story. I acted like such an asshole. But I had a good reason, in my mind at least. I was starving
and in pain from tooth extractions.
I forgot mention, the spaghetti was amazing.
