So I work nights at a wine shop. January is slow and tonight is rather cold. I was… tumbling when a frequent non customer comes in. This lady who brings her Siberian Husky in most evenings. She stands just inside the door and lets the dog do “husky talk” which sounds like roo roo roo until he gets a dog cookie. The owner of the shop and my boss has mentioned to me how after doing this same schitk for about 5 years she has yet to ever buy anything from us. My boss is very good natured and will typically make a big show of whenever “Lucas” shows up. I however, do not have this same arrangement.
Today he was in his office and I was the only one out front. She comes in and stands in front of the door and the dog does his thing. So I ignore her. Lucus then roo roo’s again and I look up from the computer and ask her if there was anything I could help her with. She whispers he wants a cookie. So I go to the front and give her a cookie which Lucas then spits on the floor. I then engage her to ask if she would be interested in some wine. She quickly deflects the question “oh not today” (or truthfully any other). She then left as some other wacko was walking in. Did I mention that Lucas has a light on his head?
This other guy comes in to kill time before the movie (we are next door to a theater) he has come in before and mentioned that he doesn’t drink. He does however like to talk and talk. The last thing he said before I called the store on my cell phone and disappeared in the back pretending to help a phone customer was something about a slang name the Canadians have for “Indians” that is not P.C.
Jesus- I have another 2 hours till I’m out of here.
