reassurances @ the library

A young man smelling of super-condensed cigarette smoke asked if there was a bus that went from this town to the neighboring town. He informed me that he just got out of jail and they took his car. He had to be at work at Safeway in four hours to decorate cakes.

"What will people do if I am not there to decorate their cakes?"
I told him they would probably have crappy birthdays, so I attempted to help him find a bus that would get him where he needed to be.

As he was leaving he thanked me for my help and confused me with his parting words "I won't kill you."

Hmm. I wasn't actually worried about it till you said something.

Wow, I bet that's a load off your mind, isn't it.
