Model Citizens

By SlowSong
I don't really like this one but I've got nothing else at the mo as we've been busy with builders and doing stuff around the house. Sad

But anyway, this chap was consulting his LB of Barnet diary when a young girl passed by; I can only imagine she's a model because she was very tall and had a bag with Model written on it. But she was also carrying papers - which in itself is quite amazing because surely she's got a smartphone, and it was the older bloke who was on his mobile!!! What is the world coming to? Smile

You've captured some wonderful expressions in this image, Chris, the model doesn't look too impressed at being photographed, neither does the lsdy in the beret type hat Grin Carol

She hasn't learned multi-tasking yet, she's studying a master at work.

I thought multi-tasking came naturally to you ladies Wink A well observed and composed candid Chris.

The young guy in the blue denims isn't looking where he's going. He's going to bump right into the Jewish guy who's going to drop his phone and angrily smack the young guy in the mouth, only he's the model's boyfriend ( though she could probably do better than him, but he'll do for now as he's promised to buy her an iPhone 5 if she's really nice to him in return for ....well we won't say any more about that ) and when the Jewish guy bends down to pick up his phone her basic sense of loyalty prompts her to land him a rather smart kick in the molars. Both the Jew and the young guy are now both experiencing severe mouth-related problems, and are anticipating a bleak future involving drinking soup through a straw. This gives them a common basis for a relationship, and they go off together to get a room. The model is initially disappointed, but has a short attention span, which helps her to heal emotionally after a few seconds, at which point she notices that in the confusion the Jew has forgotten to pick up his phone. She picks it up, intending, because of her basic sense of decency, to return it to the Jew as he guiltily has it away on his toes with her former lover, but then suddenly notices........... it's an iPhone 5 !! ...........what will she do, dear reader?...what will she do??

I like the look of concentration on the model's face, Chris. She seems to be looking past Phone Guy...right at a kebab stand...and going, "Ummm..."

To be fair, he#s actually looking at the road he's crossing.
