Apparently, “You can’t bother me, I’m on break.” is like a form of diplomatic immunity at this cafe.
I like it so much I think I might start using it, too. Especially with people who always want to hand me stuff…
“Hey, hey, hey. You can’t bother me right now. I’m on break.”
Or cold callers…
“Hello, sir, could–”
“Excuse me, I’m on break. No talky talky right now. Byeeee.”
Or the officer who pulls me over for being too awesome while driving…
“License and registration.”
“I’m sorry, officer. I’m on break right now. But look at that guy, he’s definitely speeding…”
Awww yes. I think this will work out perfectly.
