So, I went to my neighborhood Wal-Mart last night. I go there at least once a week to get my groceries for the week. Anyway, when I went to the checkout, I had a conversation like this:
Checker Girl: Hey, I see you in here all the time.
Me: Yep, this is my Wal-Mart.
Checker Girl: I see you at least once a week shopping.
Me: Yes, that’s what I do, I get my grocery shopping done, once a week.
(at this point she starts scanning my stuff, and commenting on every item)
Checker Girl: Ahh, so you are you planning on making fajitas?
Me: Yep, that’s why I got fajita seasoning.
Checker Girl: Are these Sun Dried Tomato Tortillas better than the plain ones.
Me: Yep, that’s why I get them…
Anyway, it went on an on. Basically she asked me about every item. I don’t know how to respond to everything. Obviously, I’m buying that stuff because I like it. I’m just glad I wasn’t buying anything besides groceries.. or else the conversation could have went like:
Checker girl: Ahh, Ex-Lax, huh? So are you a little backed up?
Me: Yes, I haven’t went in 3 days.
Checker girl: This cheese you’re buying shouldn’t help either.
Me: Well, the cheese is for tacos.
Checker girl: What are you doing with this jar of Vaseline?
Me: Look, could you please just press the debit button?, and I’ll be on my way..
Checker girl: What about these rubber gloves?.. And this… and that…
I guess I’ll be finding a different checker next time I go.
