Today I decided to run to Broulims (our local grocery store) to grab some lemons for a salmon dinner I was planning on making tonight. Of course I had to skim over the rest of the produce to see if there was anything in season I just couldn’t live without. I came across some cherries that looked so good. I thought to myself, “this will make a perfect dessert for after dinner.” So I got a bag of cherries and didn’t exactly look at the price.
This is what went down in the check out line
This lady was about 43 years old, big blonde hair and some sort of purplish, red lipstick.
Check out lady: “How are you today?” (In a new york accent) Do not ask me what she was doing in Rexburg and working at Broulims.
Sadie: “I am doing great, how…”
Check out lady: “Oh I am great honey, just great…..HOLY CRAP girlfriend these cherries are eighteen dollars!!! Are you SURE you want to get them?
Check out lady: “Cause they are not worth it girl, they are not worth it.” (I couldn’t get a word in)
Sadie: “I…guess not.”
Check out lady: “I would never buy cherries that cost that much, I mean you could buy like…2 bags of crack with that money.”
Sadie: “Oh really…”
Check out lady: “Oh and I guarantee you would be way way happier with crack too.”
Weird man behind me coming way to close to my bubble: “Oh yeah man, I would take crack over cherries any day.”
Check out lady: “I am telling you girl you better be glad I talked you out of those cherries you are gonna be way happier.”
Weird man: “Yeah, now you can buy crack.”
Weird man and check out lady laughing disturbingly, Sadie laughing nervously slowly taking her lemons (leaving the cherries behind) and creeping out of the check out line.
Sadie: “Thank you.”
Check out lady: “Have a great day with your crack.”
