mmkay then

Today I ventured to walmart, something I try to avoid all summer when the crotch droppings are around.

plain and simple, I had to pick up a few things, including condoms. Lots of people buy them, I'm old enough and I've been with my bf for over a year, so yeah, now and then I need to buy them.

So I fill up my basket with the stuff I need, and head to the checkout. I usually go to the very farthest one open, it usually has the shortest line. I got to the checkout and the cashier, Leah, was chatting with the girl working the next lane. No big deal, I unloaded my basket.

She was STILL TALKING. I figured the tales of her boyfriends penis must be more important than her job, so I stood there. I waited about 4 minutes, when I said "Hi, I'm ready".

Leah rolled her eyes, and started scanning my items without saying a word. I figured I'd give her the benefit of the doubt, people have shitty days. She then got to the condoms, gave this little snickering noise, and proceeded. The noise was the "what the hell is SHE buying condoms for, as if she has sex" type noise. She continued scanning, so I basically said "They're so I don't end up with children like you".

I got the "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY" look, and she totalled my purchase. I paid, got my change, and walked away from her register in silence, as she turned to the other girl and was like "I can't believe she just said that to me".

I went to her manager, explained exactly what just happened, and what I said to Leah. The manager said he would speak with her, and I left it at that.

The girl looked about 18 or 19. Obviously she's been through sex ed, and if she was talking about her boyfriend's penis, she's been on it. No need to give me attitude.
