Shy Guy gets the Girl!! (For Sweetums! (Y) )
A: (Looks up briefly from the computer screen) Your signature is irregular.
S: (Coolly) You’re probably looking up the old one. I changed it sometime back; if you scroll down, you’ll see…
A: Ha, o.k. I see it now. Sorry.
S: That’s fine.
(After a bit of hesitation, then with mustered determination) Can I buy you lunch?
A: (Appears taken aback and laughs consciously) Lunch? I barely know you!
S: (Shakes his head) Not true. You know I bank here, you probably know I come here everyday to steal glances at you, and I’m most certain it’s visible on your screen that I just withdrew this cash via ATM which I’m paying it back into the same account.
(Weak Smile) It’s a lame stunt, I know, but I had to try something eventually -to get a few minutes of your attention.
A: (Laughs out loud) Yes, I did observe that fact immediately. But it’s not my position to question the sanity of our customer’s transactions. L.O.L, you’re funny.
A: (Flicks a finger) Ignore the last bit. Bad habit from too much BB-ing.
S: (Leans forward and whispers) So what do you say…to the date? It took me five weeks to work up this nerve.
A: (Speaks whilst consciously maintaining eyes on the screen) You’re not doing bad at all for a shy guy.
(Stamps his slip) You don’t even know my name?
S: (Short laugh) A.I.T.6. Angel in teller Six.
A: (Looks up at him) Uh?!
S: That’s how I’ve referred to you- every time I get back to the office and moan about coming here and loosing the nerve to even say hello. That’s why you need to say yes to my date offer.
A: (Murmurs) Shy, Funny and Creative too.
(Brief frown) But need to? Tsk tsk, you’ve got to know it can’t be that easy to get a girl’s attention. I like things the old fashioned way; if you want a date, vie for it.
S: (With a tinge of smugness) Even though I’ve also caught you a few times returning my stolen glances?
A: (Casually) You probably wore a nice shirt or something. Good girls don’t stare at men.
(Leans forward with a naughty grin) But tell me, what are your intentions for this…date?
S: (Returns her tact) Isn’t that a bit forward for a lady?
A: (Leans back) Island guys are-for most parts, a bunch of FBA time wasters. I’m not into the matinees and sex games.
S: (Factly) I’ve never seen below your neckline from where I’m standing and yet I’ve been daydreaming of your smile for six weeks- that should say something about my intents.
A: (Return him a stamped deposit slip and now speaks officially) Your transaction is complete Mr Smith. Please drop the pink copy on your way out.
S: (Appears aghast) You’re going to brush off the shy, witty and creative guy without any reply? I thought I was gaining ground!
A: (With a smile) Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me.
S: (Face lights up) Twice on the pipe if the answer is no! Tony Orlando. I love that song too!
A: (Returns an official demeanor) Have a nice day Mr. Smith.
(Motions behind him) Next customer please.
A shuffles off the line and leaves after much hesitation.
A: (Watches him leave whilst she taps her desk slowly (thrice) with a clenched knuckle) Ooh Lord please, make him come back.
