The Oh No Man

Funny thing in Barrack Street Mall the other day.

It was lunchtime and quite crowded in the mall. A well-dressed man, late thirties possibly, was walking in the opposite direction. His phone rang in his pocket.

At the sound of the ring, he stops short, leans forward slightly and exclaims angrily through clenched teeth, "OH NO!" He frightened a number of people around him with his intensity. Oblivious to all this, he looks at the phone, growls again and then answers it politely, "Hello, this is xxxxx."
