The Queue

Right, left, right left. The two lads walked in unison, strutting a casual march. Their raised eyebrows, scornful as they looked at those still waiting in line. They’d had their go already. Suckers!

Intent on their feeling of superiority, the pair didn’t notice footsteps shuffling behind them. They felt a tap on their shoulder, turned and groaned. Giving each other a withering look.

‘Oi*, you right mate^? Why you following us? We can’t be seen with dorks.’

‘Um, er,’ the man stammered.

‘Alright then, spit it out’

‘You left the dunny^^ with toilet paper on your shoe.’ he said, smiling.
