Forgive the pasted conversation. It's worth it: 12:01amMark Lindsay, how were the stupid people today? 12:01amLindsay hahaha i actually thought of you when my boss told me about her morning this lady came in and she bought "pageantry" magazine, which is about beauty pageants, and she had on a miss wisconsin tee shirt and a bunch of buttons so sarah is standing behind the counter doing paperwork with her back to the register and she hears a noise behind her so she turns around the lady is reaching over the register trying to grab sarah's pen. she sees sarah looking, fumbles and drops the pen and then says "i collect pens and i would like to have that pen" it was a Holiday Inn pen like, a crappy ballpoint pen that would cost a dollar for 30 of them at walmart 12:04amMark Sounds like she's just a textbook kleptomaniac. 12:04amLindsay and sarah's like "um no, you can't have my pen." and the lady's like "but i COLLECT pens" and sarah's like "so?" and the lady is like "i WANT that pen" 12:04amMark wow 12:05amLindsay then she pulls out a giant purple pen from her purse and says "here, hold this pen" 12:05amMark what??? lol 12:05amLindsay it's like one of those jumbo, oversized pens and sarah was like "no, that's okay." and the lady is like "take it" and sarah says, "no i can see it from here" and then the lady asks sarah if she will trade the holiday inn pen for the giant pen 12:05amMark wow this is scarier than "Quarantine" 12:06amLindsay lmao i agree and sarah at this point is thinking there is no fucking way this lady is going to get her pen 12:06amMark hahaha 12:06amLindsay she kept saying no, and this kept going on for about 20 minutes before the lady finally left this all started at 8:35 this morning...we open at 8:30 12:07amMark what a start to the day... 12:07amLindsay sarah was like "this was a long day" i was lauhging so hard nothing that happens there anymore phases me. i'm always like "yeah...yeah, this seems right" 12:07amMark does the lady know we have a holiday inn in town? 12:08amLindsay i have no idea 12:08amMark or are the pens in her collection only satisfying to her if they are stolen or bargained for? 12:08amLindsay maybe...or maybe she just likes pens with company names on them? i should really just write a book about that store but i'm afraid the owner would sue me 12:09amMark oh man, she would have loved the pfizer viagara pen i had in highschool. got it from a girl whose dad was a doctor. then this crazy dumbass i knew stuck it up his nose. i was like, "no, you keep it now" 12:10amLindsay that was probably his plan all along 12:10amMark probably For the record, I never, ever use "lol". But I actually laughed out loud at that point, so it seemed appropriate.
