This last week of work I got the opportunity to meet several very unique individuals:
1. Man came in and asked where the Birthday candles were. I saw he got a 4 and a 9, but I just said, “Have a good night,” as normal. He said, “Oh, I will! I’m celebrating my 49th birthday tonight!” And all I could think was, I hope that party is funner than it looks. Really? Buying candles for yourself? I’m sorry.
2. This is the second time this lady has come in. Her van is covered in dog print stickers and dog bumper stickers. She also has stuffed animal dogs in her dash board. But it doesn’t stop there. Her high white socks have dog bones printed on them. Her purse has colorful dog prints all over it. Finally, her shirt advertises Purina. You can probably guess what she bought.
3. There was a man that came into buy cigarettes. He definitely wasn’t all with it…he walked halfway down the first aisle before remembering that all he came in to buy was some smokes. Then he didn’t remember what kind he smoked. Then, as I game him the cigarettes he started doing this ninja-esque fight with an invisible person/ninja. Although it was entertaining, I hope for his sake he isn’t always this high!
4. There was an older white man that came in. The first thing I noticed, for some reason, was that he had a nice zebra tattoo on his arm. Then I noticed that he had a zebra on his shirt. Then I noticed that his cell phone holder was zebra print. When I saw that he had stripes on his shoes I decided to stop looking for more oddities.
And that concludes my summer at Walgreens. I shall see you at Christmas and then hopefully never again (as an employee, anyways). Just watch…I’ll end up working there for like 10 years.
