Every once in a while, we have the opportunity to either say something totally stupid (as I was once alleged to have done here) or witness someone else stepping on their own Johnson, as this clerk at a local 7-11 store did today when I was in getting coffee and more ice cream for Lagniappe.
I shop there more days than I don't, and this clerk has always been a smart-ass with the customers, almost to the point of being a punk. He means well, and I'm sure that he's a nice kid, but he's got no filter.
As I'm getting my coffee, an attractive young lady walks into the store in a little black dress, complete with stockings and high heels. Now mind you, it's 10AM or thereabouts. Junior behind the counter sees her, and he whistles loudly, then says: "Damn, girl! Look at you doing the walk of shame! Who was last night's lucky fella?"
She stops and her mouth drops open. Then with the whole store looking on, she responds:
"I'm going to a funeral, you asshole!"
Then she turned and stormed out, leaving him there looking like West Virginia's biggest loser. And it sure was awful quiet in that store for the next few minutes.
I'm still shaking my head. That's probably gonna leave a mark on his next employee review in the "customer service" box.
