    Crazy Old Lady 1, Bag Boy 0

    | Seminole, FL, USA | Uncategorized

    (I was a cashier at a local grocery store one summer. At 9 o clock every night, it was the bagboy’s duty to clean the store…which included vacuuming the rugs in front of the automatic doors. One night, about 8-8:30, an elderly lady comes in and sits by the doors.)

    Me: “Hello! How are you tonight, do you need any assistance?”

    Lady: “No, I’m fine, I’m just going to sit here.”

    Me: “Okay, then.”

    (She sits there until about 9 o clock until a bagboy comes out with a vacuum cleaner…he proceeds to do his job.)

    Lady: “AAAH!!! What is that? What is that horrible noise? I can’t take it! I can’t take it!” *Walks up to the bagboy* “What are you doing? Stop it! Stop it!”

    Bagboy: “I’m just vacuuming the rugs…”

    Lady: “Stop it! I can’t take this noise! Why are you doing this?!”

    Me and the other cashiers: “…”

    (She goes back to sit down and doesn’t leave until late. Our managers come out and forbid the bagboys from vacuuming while she is there. She then proceeds for a couple more times that week to come in at 8 o’clock and if some bagboy even brought out the vacuum cleaner, unaware of who she is, they get an earful about the horrible noise that afflicts her.)
