Encounter in an elevator!
I work in sales and marketing on a holiday resort and today on the sixth floor, I held open the door of an elevator for a guest as I am a gentleman, you know!
Noticing she was holding onto a kindle, I struck up a conversation.
"Hi, so what book are you reading?" I asked her as I clicked one on the panel of numbers in front of me.
She looked at me and replied, "Its a Lee Childs one, a good book, damn it, oh wants the title?" She looked lost as she checked on her kindle in her hands.
Just passing the 4th floor she also mentioned that she had just finished, 50 Shades of Grey, only because of all the attention it had been receiving. She wasn't too impressed.
The elevator came to a halt on the ground floor, the doors slide open, she made her way out and as she did I said.
"You should check out on Amazon the book, Wrong Place Wrong Time."
"Really, what’s it about?"
"It’s based on a true story, it’s been getting great reviews."
"Oh right, I love true stories. Have you read it?" She asked as we both walked through the reception area of the hotel.
Replying rather cheekily, "I wrote it."
She smiled back and said, "Oh, really, in that case I will look for it and buy it."
