Alright then, let’s begin today’s story time.
I am currently employed at a certain chain clothing retail store. (I’ll let you all guess which one, but be warned, checking Facebook will be considered cheating.) Well, being in the retail business my day is always populated with either some very interesting characters or some extremely rude ones. The other evening I was blessed to come across one of the more interesting ones. A young guy waiting on his friend approached me with one of the better opening lines I’ve heard in my life.
Young Guy: “So, have you seen’ Paul Blart’?”
Me: “Uh, ‘
Young Guy: “Yeah.”
The young guy then proceeded to ask me if this stellar film made me feel different about coming into work at a mall. Luckily, I had to excuse myself from this discussion to let another customer into a fitting room. As I walked away all I could think is, “Wow. That’s the best he could come up with?”
And for those of you wondering, no, ‘Paul Blart Mall Cop’ did not make me think differently about going to work at a mall. I mean, how often can bike riding & skateboarding thug gymnasts take over a mall?
Although, I guess I would feel safer if some of those overweight security guys were riding around on Segways.
