Suddenly, Ethel looked into Vinnie's eyes and he knew what she wanted. It was written all over her face. He'd been with her many times before and she never acted this way. But this time was different.
The sweat started to bead up on Vinnie's forehead. His knees began to shake. He knew that at any second magic was about to happen. And then it did.
Ethel reached out towards Vinnie's trembling body and she grabbed the large coffee from his moist hand. He slowly said those magic words...."that'll be $1.38." Ethel paid with a five dollar bill. Vinnie counted out $3.62 in change and gave it to her with a wry smile. She responded, "I never had a coffee this big!" Vinnie just nodded and turned away. I may never recover from this episode, he thought.
Later that day Vinnie was fired for masturbating in the Salad Bar.
