So this one is more about people watching. And I swear one day the Thrift Store I work at is going to be on the news at one point for someone crushing another person because they needed their sale!
Every Saturday our store opens at 8am on the dot, and there are people starting to line up as early as 7:15 some days. And sometimes I look at them and go: “Thriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiift, thriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiift!”
These people are just so hardcore about their sales they have fought over them. Not to mention how trashed the store gets after ten minutes of opening it. *headshake*.
Last year on Halloween I dressed up as Jeff the Killer, if you don’t know who that is he’s a Creepy Pasta character and really messed up. But I went out to the toys section and just stared at the kids. One of them actually went crying to her mother saying there was a creepy man watching her and went on to describe the character I was portraying. When the mom went to check, I was hiding in the back watching her, she said this:
“There’s no one here. But if you don’t clean up the toys you pulled out he might come back.”
That is such a great line and I swear listening to people is hilarious. This is why I work at a thrift shop. Because it’s fun to people watch everyone there. And makes it easier to make background noises in certain stories. Snippits of conversations you wouldn’t normally hear. That kind of thing.
So there you have it, my saturdays in a nutshell. Busy, not fun, and loads of people.
Keep on Writing Dudes and Don’t forget to be awesome!
