Bag This

Once when I was 16 years old I worked as a bagger for a grocery store named Winn-Dixie. I worked as a bagger upfront for a year before I was upgraded to the dairy department. Thats not true, I was just never up front bagging and they just put me back there so I could actually do work while I slacked. One fond memory of my time bagging was when an older lady bought a pregnancy test and I let words pour from behind my teeth like an oil spill. I picked up the pregnancy test, waved it around in the air and said,

"So, do you want a baby or are you just making sure?"

In my head it seemed like a perfectly good question of a complete stranger could ask anyone.

She looked at me, jaw dropped, and said " That, is, Personal!" with a capitol P. I realized I had just made a horrible mistake and walked away from bagging her groceries.

Come back soon for the story of when I got caught stealing KY while on the job, its a good one.
