(Monday morning…….start of the week…………working the gate.)
Good morning. Your name?
Lephtover? How do you spell that?
L e p h t o v e r.
Hmmmmm…….Pronounce that please.
L E F T O V E R
Are you serious?
Hmmmm. What kind of name is that? German or Check or what?
Not sure. Think it’s Hungarian.
Sounds leftover to me. Like maybe an afterthought. Get it? Leftover?
Are you mocking my name?
No. Not at all. It’s just that phonetically it sounds, well you know…………funny.
What’s your name?
And you think my name is odd. You were named after an oversized rodent for God’s sake.
Ya well…………………..you have a point. Anyway, why are you here?
To pick up some leftovers you smart ass.
I just knew you were going to say that.
