The Man Was Doomed Even Before The Cookies Arrived
Published on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 by

Yesterday my co-worker and I went to a Chinese food restaurant for lunch.  It was pretty empty due to the icy road conditions, so there wasn’t much privacy as far as conversation.

There was a couple nearby that was enjoying a good hot meal and happily whispered conversation.  Giggles, smiles and flirting ala egg foo young.   They seemed to be having a great time.  Until the fortune cookies arrived.

I wasn’t paying attention until I heard the woman’s voice go up an octave.  As I looked over, I noticed the woman was holding two fortunes in her hand.  He was squirming and obviously uncomfortable.  She was shaking a fortune at him, as if he had written it himself.

On the way out, he looked like a deer in the headlights.  Poor man.  Something had gone very wrong.  And he was going to pay.

So what do I do?  As soon as the door closes behind them, I sneak over and snag the fortunes.  And laugh out loud.  What are the odds.  SERIOUSLY.

His fortune was all sunshine and roses.  Lucky him!

That is, until she opened HER cookie.

What are the ODDS of these two cookies arriving at the same time, to a couple, in the order that they were opened.  About one in a bajillion?

You just can’t make this stuff up.

  • Very funny! That is the sort of stuff that would happen to me though! I WOULD be the upset wife/gf!

  • I’ve been reading tonight. This is a really great blog (and Im picky) so I added it to my favorites on my blog at Hopefully I can bring you some new readers!

    • Oh thank you Connie!!! Loved your post about bubble wrap – didn’t know there was an appreciation day. My kids go CRAZY for bubble wrap, to the point of fighting if one of them doesn’t share. It is so addicting!

    I think he got the wrong one. I don’t see his life being harmonious as long as she gets one like hers.

    • LOL I never thought about that! Maybe she will dump him b/c of this, and THEN he will have a harmonious love life!

  • Oh that is too funny – I wonder if the owners have a jar out the back with each message so they can stuff with people…thanks for the laugh!

  • I love that you went over there and took pictures — well, well worth it. Just awesome.

    • I take pictures at the most inappropriate times…. including the last time I spilled an entire cup of coffee on the 7-11 floor. I’m hopeless.

  • I think that if he was looking shifty, then her fortune is probably accurate.

  • First of all, I need to tell you that I absolutely love that you got photos of these fortunes! The fact that you are always ‘camera ready’ is the gift of all good bloggers! Very Funny!

  • HAHA. That was hilarious. Poor old man. Well, even a cookie can prove to be unlucky some days….lol
    BTW great sneaking… lol
