"You can't make this stuff up."

Ain't that the truth. With Metro writing a book this weekend, and me just trying to stay out of his way (and be supportive at the same time!), the truth is, the best dialogue is what is merely overheard.

Which is why you should take a run past Waiterrant.net this Labour Day. (Apt, in so many ways...) His work day is our entertainment, as you can see in his latest, eavesdropping post. A sample:
1) “I want Diet Coke in my Absolut. Not a Diet Coke and Absolut.”
....
3) “This Apple Strudel’s not what my mother used to make. I don’t want it! Send it back!”
So. Always remember that the people who serve you in the grocery store, gas station, restaurant, stationery store, or what-have-you, are listening...

4 p.m. update...

Left a comment on Waiter's blog, to let him know I'd blogged about him, and linked to him...and he seems to have deleted my comment. What?! Did I break some unspoken blogger code of conduct? Is he too cool, now that he's got a book deal, that he doesn't need the traffic anymore? Or maybe doesn't feel he needs to add my two readers to his tally of thousands. Did he come here, read my little bit of nothingness, consider me beneath him, before he deleted the comment?

Weird. Leaves me feeling uncomfortable, like I've been caugh peeing on the sidewalk or something.

UPDATE to the update

Okay, so I was wrong. As a few people have told me. My sincere apologies, Waiter, for doubting you. I am, by the way, very pleased at your book deal, and hope (as I'm sure all your readers do) that you don't stop telling stories!
