I don't know about anyone else that works in retail, but sometimes I wonder how many murderers I ring up in a day.
Seriously, how would I know if some guy just killed his wife and came in to buy cigarettes from me?
I see at least 500 people a day, there's bound to be a murderer somewhere in there, right?
And I don't mean the crazies, like this guy:
or this guy:
I'm talking about the strange ones...the ones that don't look you in the eye, the ones that are very quiet...the ones that just buy their shit and get the hell out. Those are the ones that I watch out for. We have a few of those types in the store.
I'm expecting one of them to come in one day covered in blood and wanting a pack of Lucky Strikes, breathing heavily from the adrenaline rush they got from stabbing someone 71 times.
If that ever happens, then I'm out of there for good.
I can feel something strange is going to happen soon. Is there a full moon coming? I'd better put some foil on to protect myself like that guy above. Maybe he has the right idea.
