You know you’re in travel-mode when, while you’re waiting for your laundry to dry, you look up the nearest cafe on your phone. And then, without hesitation, simply drive there.
This is followed by an awkward moment when you’re sitting in a cafe and you suddenly realize that although you put your laundry in a dryer at a laundromat 6 hours ago, you never actually took your laundry out of the dryer.
Instead, you somehow found yourself working at a cafe.
So you drive the 10 minutes back to the laundromat and can see through the windows your laundry is not in the dryer.
You’re greeted at the door by an English speaking attendant…
“Can I help you, sir?”
“Yeah. I left my laundry in a dryer.”
“Oh. We have it.”
“You have it?”
“Yes, I came in and noticed it and put it in a bag for you.”
She points to the bag.
“You folded it, too?”
“Wow. What can I give you for that?”
“Whatever you want, sir.”
I had a $5, so I gave her a $5.
And a smile. A big smile.
She thanked me and smiled back.
Faith in humanity restored.
Faith in brain, not so much.
