My daughter and I stopped at Walgreen's the other night for a hairbrush. And some ponytail elastics. And maybe some moisturizer. And...you know how that goes.
As soon as we walked into the store an employee blocked our path and asked me two questions. Her English was heavily accented, so I asked her to repeat the questions. When it was clear that I wasn't going to understand what she was saying, I got nervous and answered, "Yes!" to the first and, "No!" to the second. I walked around her, but she began to walk right behind me. At no time was she more than a few inches from me. Seriously. I could hear her breathing the entire time and had I turned quickly, we may have bumped boobs. That close. Unnerved, I walked several aisles and looked at many products and she continued to shadow me without ever saying another word.
It made me nervous, and I began to wonder what questions I had just answered.
"Do you find me seriously desirable?" Yes!
"Do you think you can forget me after this encounter?" No!
"Are you planning to shoplift while in my store?" Yes!
"Can you pull it off without my assistance?" No!
"Are you certifiably crazy?" Yes!
"Did you take your meds today?" No!
I felt so guilty about what I might have admitted to that I ended up buying a hundred dollars worth of things from her.
