First Late Night - Wal-Mart


You are asking, "Why in heaven's name is she starting this post with a picture of Marlboro Lights?" Well, there are 26 registers in our store and only one sells cigarettes. Last night I was the cigarette girl.

I was so clueless that people were literally saying, "Second shelf from the bottom in the green pack- the taller pack" etc. One guy did try to explain to me what "Grizzly Wintergreen" was and I explained to him that I went to college in TROY, AL and had a vast knowledge about "chewin' da-bacca", thank you very much!

I hit a wall about 10:15PM and the clock started ticking slower and slower. When I got home (at 11:10PM) I looked like this:



Actually, I should say I FELT like this - I still had my make-up on at the store (thank heavens).

Tonight is another 6-11PM night.
