See You In September

Do you know what yesterday was? No, not September 21 (well okay, it was September 21 but that is not where this story is going. Settle down) but TIME TO GET THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS OUT! That's right, at work we started putting up the Christmas area. Aargh! I am dreading the day when the carols begin on the instore radio.

Speaking of work, the other day I waited on a man who had two items. One small thing (I can't remember what it was) and one tag from a piece of clothing. He was obviously wearing the clothes but it baffled me.

"I've gotta' ask you," I said. "I'm sure you didn't come in here naked but you are paying for a pair of pants that you are wearing. What happened to the clothes you came in with? You did come in in something, right?"

He laughed and told me that he had stashed his shorts in the trash. Broken zipper and he got tired of all the concern about gaping.

Phew! I was kinda' worried that I was noticing half clad people wandering in the store 3 feet away from me!

Oy. Much like the store that have had halloween candy out since the first week of September... cashing in on the candy freaks. They know people can't have a giant bag of individually wrapped candies lying around the house! They get snarfed, and then oops, time to buy more candy!

So far I have been able to withstand the siren song of the bagged candy. Even though the noise never ceases!
