not as they seem

My coworker Rob and I went to grab burritos for lunch today. The place was Pancho Villa Taqueria, in the Mission and it was quite delicious. As we were finishing up, a gentleman came to buss our dishes. He looked like he was a little mentally slower than average, and I was a touch startled when he asked Rob, "What your birthday?" Rob told him, and he said, "Next year, that's on a Saturday." Then he turned to me, and asked for mine. "Friday." After we left, Rob pulled out his iPhone and checked. He was spot on for both days.

The moral: "Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden..."
