So I eat at McDonalds more than I should, but it's close, and it's cheap, so I eat there. Ramone tends to work the lunch shift, and today Ramone was training the new girl.

Picture if you will, a tatted up mexican who looks like he JUST got done with a knife fight int he kitchen and came up to take orders. His tattoos are not the kind that you get from a tattoo artist, they are the kind you get when your buddy dies in prison, and you don't want to forget him. Tough guy. The girl he's training cant be much more than 17, hair all done up, make-up on, professional looking white button up shirt on...she came to play.
But you can totally tell shes outta her element here. The spiky red haired(and I mean dyed bright red) kid is asking her dumb questions like "Have you ever worked at a McDonalds before?" just to have something to say, then acting really interested in her answers. And Ramone is trying to teach her how to use the easiest piece of technology ever, the McDonalds computer. But shes totally digging on this red haird kid cause it gets her away from Ramone. Now I don't blame her either, cuase old Ramone is sending out some pretty weird look in her direction.
The whole situation was felt like it should be in a movie, because the characters were so defined. I was thinking this is when the goofy (but cute) protagonist walks in and introduces himself, and romantic comedy ensues. No one came into save the day. Of course that could be all in my head too....I could just be filling in the blanks with my own sterotypes. Everyone does it. It's why "mysterious" guys get the girls all the time. They are so mysterious, that whoever is into them, is forced to fill in the blanks, and people tend to (if they like the person) fill in the blanks with things that they are attracted to. It only ever ends in disappointment, because we see what we want to see, and not whats actually there.
