"I was not here. You did not see me."

That was me this morning. Each morning, the hotel sets out a nice little spread for breakfast, a mixture of the traditional "Continental" breakfast and a few hot items. Employees are not supposed to partake, but nearly everyone does. Normally if I'm going to do so, I grab mine before the bulk of our guests come down, so no one sees me getting the food, nor eating it. I was a little busy this morning, so I wasn't able to get any until there were a few people over there eating.

One of our frequent stay guests watched me this morning, and I looked over at him and said, deadpan, "I was not here. You did not see me."

He said, "Okay, but I did see that movie."

It's nice when someone gets my movie references.
