Too Friendly
Monday, 2007 May 14 - 8:17 pm
I am always creeped out by overly friendly service workers.

Supermarket Checkout Guy: Hello and welcome to Food Lion! Did you find everything you were looking for?

Me: Yes, thank you.

SCG: Did you find everything at our EXTRA LOW PRICES?

Me: Uh... sure.

SCG: "Sure?" (Laughs.) You're supposed to say, "Yes, the prices are SUPER LOW!"

Me: I guess so.

SCG: Can you at least say we're cheaper than Lowe's Foods?

Me: Well, that's true.

Bagger Who Speaks Up Unexpectedly: LOWE'S FOODS SUCKS, DUDE.

SCG: Darn right, man! Credit or debit?

Me: Credit.

SCG: (Finishes ring up.) Have a FANTASTIC day, sir!

Me: (Sullenly.) Thank you. You too.

SCG: THANKS!

I felt like I was a participant in some weird psychological experiment. I suppose this is how all New Yorkers or Bostonians would feel when they first encounter Southerners. But this was just over the top, even for the South.
