Today after working out I went to Wal -Mart, I mean SUUUUPPPERWAL -MART!!!!!! (Groceries make it Super!)
There is nothing better than being full of sweat and going to a busy Wal -Mart with two cashiers on duty!
After 20 minutes it was my turn to check out.
A 300 pound cashier with a beaming smile greets me, and then goes into an amazing monologue!
Here is exactly what the cashier told me:
"Hey, sir! Thanks for coming in! How are you today! Great!!!! Hey I see you are getting some apples and salad. Are you on a diet or something? I just lost 15 pounds, but I am power lifting! I lifted 350 pounds on the bench press the other day! Some people do not believe me, but I did it. I also squatted 700 pounds. Now listen, do me a favor, if you bench press or squat, please have a spotter. Everyone is born with two knees and arms and we need to take care of them, okay! Hey! You are smiling, I am glad I made you smile! Anyway, as I was saying, I lost 15 pounds, but I suggest you start off slow. 1-2 pounds is all you should be losing a week. I AM SERIOUS!!! If you lose more, you will lose muscle and then not be able to bench press. I did tell you that I bench press 350 pounds, right. Hmmm, peaches, you ARE on a diet! I love Oreos! Double Stuff are my favorite. So good! I used to have a girlfriend who loved them as well, but I am single now. Ahhh yeah, single and ready to mingle!!!! I would love to go on a date now because I want to see the Harry Potter movie! I really do not want to go by myself. Maybe someone here will want to go? I love working here, people are so nice to me. Anyway, did I tell you I can bench 350 pounds!
I did not interrupt this employee one time. I did not tell him that I lost over 200 pounds, or how much I work out, or that I just had a baby.
I just listened to him and smiled.
On my way out, I saw some sort of manager/supervisor and went up to her:
"Hey, I was just in the checkout line for 20 minutes."
"Oh, I do apologize."
"You see that guy working the cash register"
"Oh, Bob? He can be annoying"
"Yeah, Bob! Take care of him! I did not find him annoying. He loves his job and cares about the people who go through the line. He is a keeper!"
