I’m going to keep this week’s blog entry short because I know you’re ready for the holiday weekend and just sitting in front of your computer “pretend” working. I know how it goes- I worked in corporate America for over 6 years….. you’re itching for the weekend and just “trying” to look busy until the bell rings and you’re outta there.
So- this last Saturday I was working in the store navigating my way through a typical day of customers. At the end of the day there was one group of customers that really stood out to me. I was helping the mother decide which purse best suited her lifestyle and needs. It was clear from the multiple prodigies toting behind her she needed a carry all that could help her multi task and keep up with her stylish appearance. While she was at the cash wrap we realized her 2 year old daughter (the youngest of 5) was standing near the front of the store facing us- with her pants and undergarments down to her knees. Without a single flinch the mother quickly asked “what are you doing- why are your pants down”.
The little girl responded by turning around to leave her bare buns facing us. Well- I should actually retract that statement because it wasn’t just her bare buns facing us. I guess part of the learning curve of potty training involves a few “hiccups” along the way. Well- this little girl had a bad case of the hiccups- all across her bare buns.
Short story shorter- I have been working in retail for over a decade but I have never (NEVER) had anyone “hiccup” in my store. For those of you that have not caught on yet- “hiccup” is code word for something a little less pleasant.
