Another Day, Another Drug Addict

Naturally I had a nutcase come in on my shift the other day.

When I saw her, I recognized her as someone that used to be a regular customer but one that I hadn't seen in awhile. I wasn't sure if she recognized me, but she kept staring at me.

"I need $20 on pump two," she said slowly, enunciating her words while still staring at me.

I held out my hand for her to give me her two $10 bills, but she just threw them down on the counter, disregarding my hand. She then turned around and walked out. I wanted to fling a rubberband at the back of her head.

But she wasn't done yet. She stopped at the door and stared at me some more.

All I could think was, "What the fuck did I do to her?" but instead I just looked back at her and asked "Did you need something?"

She slowly walked back up to my register with her finger pointed at me.

"Do you remember me? Do you remember me? I used to come in here," she said, obviously on some form of narcotic.

"Yes, I remember you coming in here all the time," I said while slowly backing away. She was scaring me. She was short and in my experience short people can go crazy and attack in an instant!

"I just wanted to see if you remembered me. I remember you. Your hair is shorter now but I remember you," she said while still shaking her finger. What was with the finger thing?

I didn't say anything else and she turned to walk away. As she was walking away she yelled out "I just wanted you to know that you are such a pretty girl."

She finally stumbled out the door to pump her gas.

Why is it always the ones that are drug addicts that think I'm cute???


  1. I seriously got the creeps from this. And what worries me is that she got in a car and drove away in that condition.

  2. I agree with Kathy. Although I think if it had been a guy it would have been even creepier. Maybe. From what you tell us about the kind of people that are out there on the roads, it's no wonder I see people driving the way they do. They really ARE drunk, high, or stupid. Maybe all three.

  3. Drugs make you feel freer to say things you wouldn't say when sober??? Tends to be the truth about alcohol. Maybe she likes chicks but was too shy to say something sober.

  4. Yeesh, creeptastic!!! I don't even know what I'd do in that situation...freaking psycho loon!!

  5. This was creepy at first but I nearly died laughing in the end. XD

  6. What? You can't appreciate a genuine compliment when you get one?! ;)

    The world is full of crazy people!
