And I Wonder Why?

To think, a Masters Degree just isn't what it used to be.


So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter,
I lasted less than a day......
About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud,
unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids,
Yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.
As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly,

'Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart.
Nice children you have there. Are they twins?'

The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say,
No, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7.
Why the world would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?'

So I replied, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am,
I just couldn't believe someone slept with you twice.
Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.'

My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work

Oh, that IS precious. I'll have to store that away in my memory banks and pull it out for a rainy day! Makes me want to dress up like a Walmart greeter for Holloween, go the local Walmart and give it a whirl! I could punk so many people!

Oh man, working for just a day at Wal-Mart would probably help me with some anger issues.

Who came up with the store greeter thing anyway? It's so stupid. I could care less if someone says hello to me at a store, I'd rather there be lots of cashiers so you don't have to stand in line for ages.

I admire your restraint though. I'd have cussed the fat cow out.
