|About to clobber someone with a can of chopped clams|
Anyway, we had the most careful, serious grocery clerk I've ever seen in my life. She offered expert bagging tips I never would have thought of, recipes, food storage tips, and other morsels of information as she scanned and carefully packaged our groceries.
While no snappy one-liners, the whole experience was both heartening- it's nice to find someone who takes their job very seriously and applies the very best of herself to it- and surreal. Brett & I acted out the, "The beets, please" scene for hours afterward.
