I'm No Girl Scout, But...

I sometimes play one in ReaLife. *sprains shoulder patting self on the back*

I decided to walk down to Quiznos for lunch today.  I wanted to give their new Sammies a try.  The one pedestrian signal at the main intersection has been stuck on "Don't Walk" for days, no matter what the traffic signal says.

                                                                    . 

When I got to the corner, there was this little old man standing there, not crossing.  Since he was going the same way, I told him that the "Walk/Don't Walk" signal has been messed up for a while & that it was okay to cross.  He walked with me & it turns out that he has severely limited eyesight & can't always tell if it's safe to cross or not.  Then he patted me on the arm & thanked me for walking across with him.

He was so cute & this small, simple thing gave me warm fuzzies that I'll probably have for the rest of the day.  *is a dork*  

I'm really, pretty sure that I'm still going to Hell though...one kind act does not equal redemption!

Oh yeah, the Sammies were DELISH!!!!  I had the Sonoma Turkey.  A little spicy & a little cheesy, just like RealSammy.

That is the sweetest thing, Rap! What a good samaritan you are!!!

I haven't tried the Sammies yet - I'll have to get over to Quizno's and give them a whirl...

I'm jealous. Those Sammies look so good on TV. Quiznos popped up all over the place here like a plague a few years ago, but I think they tried to do too much too fast and 95% of them shut down this past year. I'd have to go way out of my way to go to one.

Doesn't being a good samaritan make you feel all fuzzy inside? In a good way I mean, not in a moldy fuzz kind of way :D

I love little old men. They're so entertaining! You did good, Rap. BIG kudos to you!

I wanted to give their new Sammies a try. Umm... I can't repeat where your language took me, honey, but let's just say I'm sure your avatar's been there once or twice! ]:)

ACK! I couldn't find a good picture of the Quiznos Sammies! I had to look through my work email this morning to find the original flyer I had, so I will work on it tonight, m'kay?

I've got PLENTY of good shots of RealSammy.

*is (im)patiently waiting*

hahaha... I've seen a few of your "plenty" & they have a tendency to convert me from time to time. Speaking of, I forgot to tell you that I saw what's his face - oh god, you know, that guy, that guy that I keep commenting on and asking who he is? Musician, dark-haired, amazingly sexy when he opens his mouth... HOLY hannah I saw him on some music competition for charity a few weeks ago while I was channel surfing & he was so pretty I had to stop for awhile & suddenly I realized (jumping up and down no less) "that's that guy! that guy that I keep asking Rap about!" and I suddenly understood why he needed to be iconed so frequently.

Ya, ya, ya, ya... I know that calling "that guy" is terrible, but I can't ever remember his name! *facepalms*

I can't wait to try a sammie! I have never been to Quiznos - it's on my "things to do in my new home" list.

OHHHH!! moving icons? Shineeee... *is j-e-l-l-a-s*

Oh and good work with the elderly! I was treated very rudely by one today so I'm not feeling the love so much today, But good job!

I'm playing catch up here because of being unconscious on NyQuil all day, but I wanted to say that's a sweet story. Helping people gives you the greatest feeling in the world. Even just being nice, and smiling at people is pretty cool too. After all, What Would Jared Do? :) He probably would have thrown that little old man over his shoulder and carried him across the street!

I'm partial to the steak Sammies myself. I don't think they come with cheese, but my Quizno's guy throws on some mozzarella, and they're heavenly. Yum.
