TASTEE SUB - "I’ll just have a number 6"
"I’ll just have a number
If I relay
someone else’s story is that stealing?Maybe, but I’m doing it anyway.This is from my son’s friend’s father, who owns “Tastee Sub” a
successful sandwich shop in Edison, NJ.
The sub shop
is open every day of the year, except New Year’s Day, from 9:00 am until 11:00 at night.I once asked the owner, Dave, has anyone ever
tried to rob you at the store.His
“I’m not sure, but I think so.”
you not know if someone tried to rob you or not?
It was 10:55
on a Thursday night, always a slow night, and a rather disheveled man of
questionable hygiene entered the store.He walked up to the counter and before I could even greet him he mumbled
“I’ll gift me moft monty!”
“Empty my carst regstramtor!”
“What? I’m sorry, I’m not sure what
it is you want.”
“I wamit cashen.”
“Cashen?” “Monkey, cashen, thisen a sticker!”
“A sticker? What is a sticker? Look
it’s about closing time, what do you want?”
looked confused, started to stammer and then finally just said,
“I’ll just have a number 6.”
When he left
I asked my partner what was that all about?
“I think he was trying to rob us.”
“Really, you think so?”
To this day
Dave is not sure.
He did make
the number 6 with extra mustard.
