Conversations with clerks volume 5
At 7-11 last night.
Clerk: Two diet cokes. Anything else?
Me: No ma'am.
Clerk: Don't call me ma'am it makes me feel old.
Clerk: I can run circles around those little girls.
Me: I am sure you can.
Clerk: I am serious.
Me: Well, have a good night.
Clerk: Are you a fan of the King?
Me: Don King?
Clerk: No, Elvis....
Me: Well he was a little before my time.
Clerk: He liked older women. A little known fact.
Me: I learned something today.
Clerk: Think about it.
Me: My wheels are turning. I must go home and finish my work.
Clerk: Are you avoiding the proposal?
Me: See you soon.
Note to self, do not at any cost go back to that 7-11. There are many other convinience stores where the clerks don't scare me.
