Last night my wife had an appointment so I decided I’d give her a ride to where she had to go and then pick her up when she was done. Not only would it get me out of the house, but it would give me a chance to get a couple of things done. First stop was the carwash.
A clean vehicle has been something of a rarity at the Lewis house over the course of the summer. With all of the crap coming from the trees that hang over our vehicles, neither one stays clean for very long. Oh well, it had to be done, even if it would look clean for only a day or so. To my pleasant surprise, the carwash was not busy at all. Plus, the machine I ended up using was full of soap, another rarity for me! I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. After that it was off to the drug store.
That’s where I ran into “Miss Personality” working the counter. When I pulled up to the counter with my two items, there was a gentleman with a couple of items of his own. Neither of us got a smile or a hello. My kinda gal! As she was ringing his items through, it appeared a button on her keyboard got stuck, so she started smashing down hard a couple of times with her index finger until she fixed whatever was wrong. Then the man asked how he could get one of the points cards that this particular drug store offered. I couldn’t believe it. The man started filling out the form for the card right there. He left his items unpaid, sitting on the counter, while the rest of us waited patiently behind him. Hey lady, get his money and tell him to fill that damn form out somewhere else. Maybe the rest of us had somewhere else to be!
Finally, the man who was filling out the form suggested to Miss Personality that she take care of the rest of us while he put pen to paper. With a big sigh and a “well, looks like I’ll have to void this purchase,” she huffed and puffed and took care of the rest of us standing in line. No hello. No smile. What a winner.
I can only imagine the people waiting for this little ray of sunshine to get home from another hard day of running the cash register at the drug store.
Before I knew it my wife was ready to be picked up and I was able to chauffeur her home in a nice clean vehicle!
