It was a cold, rainy day when I had to go into CVS to get some purple drank and survival gear. I ran in, soaking wet, and immediately approached the cashier before even so much as looking around the store at all.
""Where's the battries?!"" I demanded.
""Right there"" he said whilst pointing to a gigantic stand right next to me that no any other human being could miss.
I grabbed my battries and reapproached the cashier.
""Are you open?"" I asked.
""Yes,"" he said, ""do you have a CVS card?""
""Yes,"" I said in return.
After a few minutes of awkward silence, he continued.
""Would you like me to type in your phone number?"" he queried.
""Okay,"" I said and I gave him my phone number.
He rang up my battries and I immediately said ""wait those are supposed to be buy one get one free!""
He told me not to worry, and sure enough not have a second before I even bothered to look at the screen they were buy one get one half free.
Afterwards, I slid my credit card and said ""credit"" aloud into the machine and knocked on it not unlike how one knocks on a door and turned my ear to face the contraption. After a few minutes of awkward silence, I slid my card again and pushed ""debit,"" typed in my PIN number (8349) and waited.
""Would you like cashback?"" he said.
""No."" I replied.
After a little while longer, I hit ""yes"" on the screen and immediately thereafter said ""awwwww, diddly dangit, I didn't want cashback!!""
""It's okay,"" he said, his voice suave and heroic,"" ""just push 'accept' without typing in an amount.""
Sure enough, the transaction completed and I was on my way, but not before watching him bag the items, place the bag on the counter, and have to deal with me telling him ""I don't want a bag.""
I wish I could remember this mystery man's name, but in any case each male employee should get an immediate raise to $12/hr just so he is included in the process, and if that short guy gets a raise too in the process so be it.
