I am so amazing now, that one of our biggest customers finds excuses to come into the store just to "visit" with me. I am unmercifully teased by my co-workers about this gentleman's obvious crush on me. Take for instance what happened on Monday.
"Well, hello Mr. X! I didn't expect to see you back so soon. How can I help you today?"
"Hey there sugar! I thought I would just stop in and have a look around."
That's when my boss stepped in with this brilliant line.
"Look as long as you like, Mr. X."
Upon hearing this invitation from the general manager of the store, Mr. X stood and stared at me, smiling adoringly, to which I stood and stared back, smiling crookedly as my manager and co-workers walked off snickering. Idiots.
Let them laugh, I say. They are just jealous. I mean, what girl wouldn't want an older, toothless, long-haired, hippie calling them sugar and smiling adoringly at them at least three times a week?
Jealous, I tell you.
