Worked night shift again last night. This time there was almost drama. Almost.
A guy came in with his daughter around midnight. I was ringing him up at the counter when his daughter (about 10 years old) wanted to pick out candy so she started looking at some.
This customer behind them then shouted out to the little girl 'You don't want candy, it's not good for you.'
This girl's father shot the guy a death look. So, the guy keeps talking, mostly to himself, about how candy isn't good for little kids.
I finish ringing up the father and his daughter and on the way out the father gives this customer the evil eye the whole time. I thought he was going to ask the guy to take it outside. I would have brought the popcorn.
But, alas, nothing happened. If it did though, I would have totally sided with the father. People open their big mouths way too often. Sometimes a punch in the throat is all it takes to make someone mind their own business.
