Lost in Another World

I've noticed that when someone comes up to my register with a booger in their nose, I can't pay attention to anything but that booger.

Last night I had a woman come in and there it was, dangling away. I had to have her repeat what she wanted because everything around me had totally ceased to exist and it was just me and her booger trapped in space and time.

I finally came out of it and got her cigarettes, but had no idea what else she had said to me. She could have offered me a million dollars for all I know.

I feel like I lost about 4 minutes of my life that I can never get back.

It's kind of the same with some of these nose rings people are wearing. They don't realize that the post sticking out inside their nose looks just like a booger.

Maybe the booger is the new fashion?

  1. LOL I love your little booger text! Maybe because I am wearing a nose-ring and, in the beginning, was really worried if something would keep stuck in it whenever I had caught a cold. Fortunately, I doesn't (as experience has shown me). Here in France, it's the 'decentred' mouth-ring-piercing that's all the rage now: a spot-like jewel that you wear over or under your mouth, but never right in the middle. It looks to me like a crust of baguette or food-stuff that the person has forgotten to wipe away.

  2. My niece has a nose ring and the hook in the middle. I am always staring at it. Drives me nuts.

  4. Frankly, there is never a graceful or polite way to inform someone of their booger issue. It embarrasses everyone involved.

    Boogers...ah...gross...perhaps the little kids that just "pick em and flick em" are the ones who know what it's all about. If it's there, get rid of it...cause if you don't...you are wasting precious moments of our favorite Cashiers life.

  5. LOL, thanks for the laugh after a long day. You would think they would realize that darn booger is hanging there wouldn't you?

  6. I have a nose ring, but believe me...I was very careful to not get one with one of those inner boogery looking backings on it.

    There is no way I'd be able to take a customer serious who had something hanging out of their nostril.

  8. I am stuck between the booger and the large white pimple. I tend to stare at both,not knowing quite what to do.
