Oi! : Super Short Story (210)

Super Short Story (210): Oi!

She spoke of how she saw a guy
drop some coins on an escalator.
Although the clinking was loud,
he couldn’t hear it as he had earphones on.
An opportunistic man man behind him
picked up to pocket the coins.

I remarked that she should have yelled out ‘Oi!’
She replied that it was pointless as the guy couldn’t hear.
I clarified that it was for the other man who could.
