Okay, maybe that title wasn’t the best idea. Some of you know that I work part time at a grocery store. I’ve only been there the last 3 months, when you have to go to the doctor on a weekly basis makes it a little hard to find a “real” job.
But, anyhoo I actually like my little part time gig, believe it or not. I didn’t think my leg would hold up but so far so good. I better go knock on some wood ha ha.
So, I’ve always kinda of been a people watcher, okay I am a people watcher have been for along as I can remember…
Lets just say I have met some pretty nice and some pretty cra-cra people in the last 3 months.
1st up I got my stalker lady yeah that’s right she comes and finds me every Friday afternoon that I work. I mean I even moved departments yep she found me. She is really nice and I try to take the time out to talk to her, but I really don’t thinks she realizes I’m at work. I think she is just lonely, I know all about her, her husband, and her son’s recent divorce and what is going on with it. So I do try to spend a few minutes with her, Who knows maybe I make her Friday shopping a little better.
Next, I have the creepy man from the parking lot, he drives his car around the parking lot a bunch and he tries to talk to me and other women as he cruising the parking lot. I’m usually a pretty friendly person, but this guy gives me the Stranger Danger vibe
Then, I have my Sunday morning, the world is going to end where are your mark down water filters lady. She comes in every Sunday to visit, and looks for mark down water filters. I asked her why she buys so many she told me if something happens she thinks they are going to put it in the water supply. Okay….., I’m thinking “Lady, if they put something in our water supply, I don’t think a grocery store water filter is going to get rid of it, your going to need something a little stronger” But I just go and see if I can find her any. If it keeps her at ease I’m all for it.
Then I have my When can I have a date man, I mean really he is like 70 years old. (No offense to the 70’s population out there, I mean really if I wasn’t married & a little bit older…) wears a Vietnam Vet Hat… Thank you for your service… Sir, I really can’t go out with you, I’m married for one, and hey you might know my Dad he served in Vietnam? nope didn’t deter him.
Then I have my favorite customer of all times… If he drives his car anything like his motorized grocery shopping cart… Lord help us of all. This guy always finds me, and has me follow him around the store to get his groceries. What I think is so great about him is the history of world he shares with me, and the fact he recuse animals. I mean he buys more pet food then person food, I wished I knew more about him so I could help out.
These are just the top performers and I’m not even gonna touch on some of the clothing I see going on out there scares me just to think about it…
