The clerk was industriously scanning our groceries when my ever tactful daughter looked at her and said, "Are you ok?" I looked more closely at the clerk's face then and saw that her eyes and the area around her eyes were very red and somewhat swollen, like she had been crying.
*scan, scan, scan* She replied cheerfully, "Oh yes, I'm fine. I just found out this morning that I have conjunctivitis." *scan, scan, scan*
My daughter turned to me and said, "Mom, what's conjunctivitis?"
"Pinkeye" *eye twitch*
Daughter goes O_O look at me. I don't blame her. I didn't say a word to the clerk, or her managers, but my god, she has her hands on every single thing I am buying, and pinkeye is pretty damn contagious!
This was last Thursday. We didn't get it, but still, yuck!
