Cape Town Stories 12

I’m standing in the queue at Checkers. Behind me two policemen in uniform. One of them looks longingly at the isles of sweets strategically placed to tempt you while you wait in line. The other looks at him and loudly exclaims: „Why you looking for things now, inside the whole time I asked you what do you want. It’s Christmas, I can spoil you today!“. I smile at this romantic gesture. The other policeman notices my amusement and says: „He is lying, he is only saying that to you impress you, inside I said to him I want something and he said he only has a twenty Rand“. Lol. I’m so impressed.
