She’s about 17-ish. Ida know if that matters, but whateves…..
Me:”Hi!” (while placing a whole lotta meat on the belt counter thingy)
Checkout girl: “Are you having a party?” (eyeing all the meat)
Me: “No, I just have a husband who eats a lot.”
Checkout girl: “I thought you’d get some of those Hagen Das Ice Cream bars.” (Like she knows me?)
Me: “Uh…” (thinking….what do you mean you thought I’d get Haagen Dazs ice cream bars? Did I last time? I’ve never bought Haagen Dazs ice cream bars. Does she remember me from last time? This girl is strange.)
Checkout girl: “Well they’re on sale and everyone’s buying them.”
Me: “Ohhhhhhhhh.” (Now I’m getting it thinking maybe she’s not so strange.)
Checkout Girl: “Does your husband like tuna?”
Me:”Oh is it on sale too? I must’ve missed that.”
Checkout girl: “No it’s not on sale..I just wondered.”
Me: Umm…”Yes, he does like tuna.” (thinking….no, this girl IS absolutley strange and this very well may be the oddest conversation I’ve ever had..but what do I do…..I can’t graciously excuse myself..I gotta pay for the meat!)
Checkout Girl: “You have great hair.”
Me: “Thanks.” (I’m about to abandon the meat and make a run for it.)
Checkout Girl: “Your total is 123.96.”
I proceed to pay…
Checkout girl: “Well, have a great weekend with your meat.” (I swear this is ALL true!)
Me: “It’s Tuesday….” (smiling)
Her: “Oh yeah. Well than have a great Tuesday with your meat.”
Me: “You too.” (Now I sound crazy too!…At this point I am trying NOT to laugh out loud as I exit the store because I don’t want to make the poor girl feel strange….as if that’s possible.)
Imagine her surprise if she knew her wackiness was being blogged about and shared with the masses.
Okay now I kinda feel bad.
And I could totally go for one of those on sale Haagan Dazs bars I didn’t buy.
