October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

A Cheerful Earful

| Portland, OR, USA | At The Checkout

(I have been helping a customer sort out an order and have escorted her to the cashier. I hand her over with a smile and the cashier greets her with a smile.)

Customer: “Everyone here is so cheerful! You are all so very cheerful!”

Me: “Yes, well, we enjoy nice customers like you!”

Customer: “God almighty, what do they feed you?! CHEERFUL Kool-Aid?!”

(The cashier and I continue to smile while the customer pays. As she leaves…)

Customer: “So cheerful…so cheerful…SO CHEERFUL!”
