    Paying Attention Is The Key

    I work at a car dealership as a porter. We close at 9:00 pm. Thirty minutes before closing, I see a dude pull up in a Porsche. He gets out of his car, takes two steps, turns around, and throws his hands up in frustration.

    Me: To myself “He’s locked his keys in the car.”

    He comes into the dealership looking agitated and marches up to another porter.

    Customer: “Get me a slim Jim.”

    Porter: “We can’t lend those out by law.”

    Customer: “Get me a slim Jim! I don’t care!”

    Me: Intervening “Sign a waiver that you won’t hold us responsible for any damage you make to your car, and you got a deal.”

    He does so, and we watch him go at his car for forty minutes with no luck. Ten minutes after closing, I head on out.

    Me: “We need that slim Jim back.”

    Customer: “But I need to get back into my car!”

    I took a look at the situation up close for the first time. I obliged him by reaching into the open moonroof and handing his keys to him.

    Maybe I should answer spam calls that way.

    It must be difficult calling people for somebody named Scam.

    Fortunately, I don’t have to deal with such. I have a setting on my phone that blocks any calls from numbers not in my directory of trusted callers. Although I am tempted reset my phone to not screen calls and use the line in the second panel when I answer the phone.
