    Conversation with the Security Guard Downstairs

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | November 17, 2008

    I asked my sister, Frances, to bring lunch to me at work in exchange for giving her a Nokia phone for her trip to Buenos Aires.

    Me: Can you let her up?
    Guard: No, I can’t.
    Me: (Thinking he’s kidding, because they do this before). Ha ha.
    Guard: She’s delivering food, right?
    Me: Um. She’s my sister.

    This is actually not the first time this happened. Last time it was an ABC friend (Math PhD from MIT) who was a guy, with a bike helmet. A little bit more understandable. But this is a woman.

    As my sister has noted, she may be the only delivery person in New York City who does not know how to ride a bike.
