Hope things are going well for you. My morning
started off a bit slow but went from normal to freaky in about 5 seconds flat.
I was standing at the end of my belt when a crusty walked up to me. He was about mid 40ish, pretty normal looking. He asked if there was any way he could get some help getting down a kayak (yep, we sell kayaks over the summer. There is couple of them that are left and on sale.)
I said, "Sure no problem let me get someone over here to help."This isn't an unreasonable request since the kayaks are a bit bulky. He could have left it at that.
So I blink my light for my supervisor to come over and call up one of the stockers from the back to help.
The crusty goes on to say "I would get one down myself, but I just had heart surgery."
I reply, "Sorry to hear that. I hope you are feeling better."
Of course I'm
thinking if you just had heart surgery maybe you should be rethinking this
kayak, but who knows maybe it's a gift. And anyways he didn't need to offer any
excuses for asking for help getting one down since like I said they are rather
bulky and difficult for one person to manage.
But I guess he wanted me to know that he really did in fact have heart surgery, cause he starts to unbutton his shirt and show me his nasty ass scar. Like when is it ever appropriate for a guy to unbutton his shirt in a store and flash his chest and scar at anyone?
I'm just standing there speechless when my supervisor
walks up at that exact minute. I give her this "I have no idea what the
hell to do or explain this" look, and thankfully the crusty is starts to
button up his shirt and starts to tell my supervisor that he needs help getting
the kayak cause he just had heart surgery. They walk off and my fellow cashier
and I are like "WTF?"
It's not that I'm bothered by skin or men's chest, but it just was such a strange thing for anyone to do. I guess it could have been worse, he could have just had surgery for hemorrhoids, lol.
