Re #PRT: I was really excited that someone attempted such a selfless gesture, but little did I know. Well, some other guy has his number now
I take a number & wait in line. A man approaches, hands me his ticket, I thank him, he leaves. Later, I find his phone number on the back.
A friend tells me there was an earthquake. Didn't feel a thing. Well, on with work. #Egypt
