An End To A Quirky Tradition

When we moved into the area about 10 years ago, we started ordering take-away from the local Thai restaurant. Jamie would order and I would go and pick up. The first time we did this, I picked up the order in Jamie's name. Since then the staff have addressed me as Jamie.

The first time was momentarily confusing, but since then it's simply been fun. A way of noting that this was my local restaurant. On my last visit, the staff saw me coming, opened the door and said, "Welcome Jamie." But then when it came time to sign off on my credit card, she realised that my name was David and said "Oh, Jamie is your wife's name." And she apologised. And so it seems, a quirky tradition had sadly come to an end. Sigh. Oh well, let's see what happens next time.
