The Single Guy and the Missed Opportunity

Once again, it had been over a week since the Single Guy had seen the Girl in the White SUV. She was still coming to the bank, she just happened to be there on the Single Guy's day off. All day on Tuesday, he felt good about his chances of seeing her that day. He knew that it was only a matter of time until her car came back through his lane.

And so he was sitting in his car enjoying a late lunch. It was a nice day and actually felt pretty good outside, so he was enjoying some fresh air while he ate his sandwich. And then, in his rear-view mirror, he saw the white SUV drive around the corner and pull up to his window. No, she didn't pull up to his car window. She pulled up to his teller window. Sadly, however, he was still eating his lunch and was not manning his station.

Someone else ran her transaction that day. Someone who had volunteered to go to lunch second, in order for the Single Guy to go ahead and eat first. So, yet another day passed for the Single Guy and the Girl in the White SUV. Another opportunity was missed. The Single Guy's chance to have his day made had driven away. He didn't cry. Much.
