Booze, You Lose

| Working | March 4, 2014

(I’m at a convenience store, down an aisle that has chips and beef jerky along one side and wine along the other. I’m debating over chips. I am very obviously no longer a teenager.)

Cashier: “Hey!”

Me: “Yes?”

Cashier: “Hey! You! Get the f*** out of that aisle!”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Cashier: “Don’t you know it’s illegal for kids to go down the booze aisle?”

Me: “One: no, it’s not. Two: I’m not a kid. I’m almost 30.”

Cashier: “It’s illegal! I’m not losing my f****** job if some cop sees you.”

Manager: *who has been right behind the cashier the whole time* “Actually, she’s right, and you’re right to worry about your job, but not because of her. Let’s go talk in the back.”

(He still works there, but he gives me a death glare every time he sees me.)
