A woman was waiting at an airport one night.There were several long hours to wait for her flight.She hunted for reading in the airport’s gift shop,bought a big bag of cookies and found a place she could drop.
She was engrossed in her book, but she happened to seea man sat beside her — as bold as can beand grabbed up a cookie from the bag in betweenwhich she tried to ignore — and not make a scene.She munched at her cookies and glanced at the clockas the masculine cookie-thief diminished her stock!She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked byThinking, “If I wasn’t a lady, I’d blacken his eye!”
With each cookie she took, he took one or two!With only one left, she watched what he’d doWith a grin on his face, and a nice nervous laughHe took the last cookie and broke it in half!He offered her half as he munched on the otherShe snatched from him and murmured “Oh Brother!This guy has some nerve, and he’s also quite rudeHe never showed even polite gratitude.”
She had never known when she had been quite so galled!She smiled with relief when her flight was called.She gathered her stuff and marched to the gate.(With not even a glance at the thieving ingrate.)She boarded the plane and sank in her seat,then sought out her book which was almost complete.
As she reached in her bag, she gasped with surprise,her bag of cookies were in front of her eyes!“If mine are right here,” she moaned in despair, then the others were his and he was trying to share!Too late to apologize, she realized with griefThat she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief!
