I was at Walmart last night, in the process of reading and comparing packages on batteries when someone said something to me – breaking my concentration (my concentration is intense, even for comparing products).
I looked up and saw a young guy, good looking (knew it), trying to offer me a charming smile, and I was immediately suspicious and because my politeness subroutine hadn’t kicked in yet, I glared at him. (I mean, young good looking guys don’t offer charming smiles for benign reasons, right?)
He then tried to initiate a sales pitch, which promptly explained the interruption and smile, and I ruthlessly cut his pitch off.
He looks at me, obviously taken aback and then sounding surprised rather than angry says “so mean!”
I have to admit that was the highlight of my day.
