Ah! It's good to be back at the Haven!
Concerning these weird events, I have one of my own...
The day after my birthday, I had a lot of money on my hands, and I didn't know what to do with it...
Naturally, I went to TRU and bought something around 10-20 items, all Nerf brand. When I walked up to the register, the cashier looked and me and said, something along the lines of, "I hope you don't cause trouble with these, or else I won't let you purchase these guns..." With a hint of insult.
I calmly responded, "Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions you insolent little prick, and if you want to keep you job, shut your mouth and scan the items."
He got angry and screamed, "LEARN TO RESPECT OTHERS, SMARTASS!"
Just as I have hoped, the manager was talking to another employee about something else when he heard the cashier scream at me. Before he confront us, I said to the cashier, "I told you to keep you mouth shut..."
The manager approached and said to me, "What seems to be the problem here, sir?"
I eplained the situation and the manager rung me up and asked if I wanted a free gift card for $25. Natually, I said no, and told him, "I would apprecitate it if I do not find myself in the situation again." I then walked out of the store.
Now this is the only TRU for miles, and I know pretty much everyone who works there. So the nexxt time I strolled to TRU to get more guns, there was a new cashier. I must say, she was absolutely beautiful. When I took my items to the cashier, she asked if I was in to stuff like this (I assumed guns) and I said, "For a much more justifiable reason than simulating war."
I went through normal procedures and was off on my way in no time. As I was walking out, she smiled and said, "Hey, have fun modding!" Her words took my breath away and her smile took my heart.
A week ago, I went back to TRU to buy a couple of guns again. Oddly, I didn't see the one person who took my heart away. After a number of other visits, I still did not see her. I tought to myself, must of been a summer job.
I sighed and walked out of the store with empty hands and an empty heart.
Life sure is a drag sometimes...
