This post might be a little TMI, but I'm going to talk about it anyways.
I've probably talked about this customer before (I'm too tired from night shift to go back and look it up) but I'm going to mention him again.
There's this boy that comes into the store and I've watched him grow up over the years. He used to come in with his dad and was probably about 10 years old at the time. As the years have gone by, I've seen him change drastically right before my eyes.
Once he hit his teen years he dyed his hair black and started painting his finger nails black as well as wearing black nail polish. I thought "Oh great, another Goth kid". But I was wrong.
Shortly after that I noticed he wore tighter clothing and also started talking with a lisp. He was also swaying his hips as he walked around the store. This went on for a few years, which made him around 15 or 16 at this time. I could tell he was rebelling against whoever it was that pissed him off because every time he came into the store it's like he wanted everyone to know he was gay. It's as if he was waiting for some kind of reaction from us.
I personally don't give a shit whether he's gay or not, as long as he doesn't cause any trouble.
Anyways, one night I was working night shift and he came in with another kid. (I call them kids because 15 years old is a kid to me.)
Him and his friend practically skipped around the store chasing after each other while smiling and laughing and being in love. When they came up to the counter, it was apparent they were going to "do it" with each other that night because one of them set condoms on the counter to buy. Sadly they weren't the strangest customers I had that night.
Fast forward to the other day and this kid comes in again. It was 7am on Sunday morning. He had headphones on, tight black pants and a black leather vest with no shirt on underneath. Oh, and also a black leather cap on, too because if you're going to do the Village People look, it's got to be complete. He walked around the store for awhile dancing to whatever music he was listening to. He really started getting into it too, because the next thing I know he's doing a pirouette in the middle of the store next to the Steak-umms.
He finally comes up to the register and sets a pack of gum down on the counter. I asked him how he was doing today and he replied that he was great.
However, this is where I became confused. When he spoke to me, I noticed that he was missing his 4 front teeth. He had all of his teeth a few weeks ago.
The first thing I thought of (I swear I'm going to hell), was that he knocked his front teeth out so he could give better blow jobs.
Seriously. He had teeth the last time I saw him.
Please tell me this isn't some kind of fad. Do people do this sort of thing?
