A Peculiar Customer
Whilst working away at the espresso machine as I do most Saturdays I glanced over to a couple of folks who were just paying their bill, nothing unusual there it happens hundreds of times every day. The lady then gained my attention and beckoned me over. What she said next doesn't happen every day however(not to me anyway). "This may sound quite odd to you but would you care to look down my top?" well, I was quite busy, but sometimes to decline such an offer may offend, so I sidled over as she pulled down the front of her jumper. There between the cleavage where normally there would be...well, cleavage, was quite a large lizard. This was not something out of a Christmas cracker you understand, this was a big old fella and I at first thought it may even be a rubber one, but then he blinked at me, the lady said "he comes everywhere with me". I'm not particularly interested in lizards or reptiles in general, you know I can take 'em or leave 'em, but I think it might have been an Iguana, I am interested in people however, especially our customers of course and this lady was one of our more unusaul ones.
