The gang at the HOMELESS DAY CENTER just got their bologna handout and lined up at the microwave oven to toast it.
I knew these street guys that have all but taken over the HOMELESS DAY CENTER would not miss an opportunity to pull one of their little stunts.
When the average person is waiting in line for the microwave to heat their food, their attention will be straight ahead.
NOT THESE GUYS.
Their heads are turning every which way EXCEPT straight ahead toward the microwave.
So I thought I would wait till the last guy has his food in the microwave.
This seemed like the "SAFEST" bet.
I waited about 30 minutes until the line was down to the last guy.
Well, the guy walks around a corner where the coffee machine is and starts up a conversation with someone there.
NOW, these spontaneous conversions are nothing more than an excuse for the perpetrator to be where he wants to be for the moment.
ON THE PERIMETER WAITING....
In this case waiting for the victim to open the microwave door and remove HIS FOOD!!!.
Well a guy showed up behind me who was interested in getting his food warm, and shouted loudly for anyone with food in the microwave to come get it.
After a while, this guy comes around the corner with a BIG SMILE on his face, "Oh, FORGOT ABOUT MY FOOD."
He did not FORGET HIS FOOD.
He was waiting for someone to walk into the trap.
He fully planned on JUMPING ALL OVER whoever opened that microwave door.
