I work as a cashier there, and it is frequented by predominately Military members. It is the Lunch Time Hang Out for the base and it is in the Community Activities Center (aka the CAC, prounounced just like that). Now there are people who I could easily shoot in the faec. Then there are the people that I genuinely like, they are the people that when they walk through the door, I know what they are going to order, I already have their cups out and waiting for them and I have enough talk time with them to engage in banter back and forth. They know my name and I know theirs. For the very fact that it is a job on the lower rung, it does not pay much, the hours are few.. but I enjoy it because of the people that come in. I take pride on the fact that I can give them a smile every single time. It is my virgo nature kicking in. I do not think I could be happy behind a desk without people interaction (For all anti-social I am in my off time, I do like dealing with people.. I really do.. but only if it is on a professional manner.)
So anyways today one of my regular's threw their wallet over the counter at me. And Jeff my supervisor saw it and was like to the customer. "Wait, let me go get the pole in the back" to which point I laughed. The person that threw the wallet at me is also a regular at the movie theater where I work on weekends, so he knew me doubly so and I knew him. And then there is this couple that comes in, they are always so nice and our connecting moment came when like a few months back I handed them a slip and told them their number was 69.. to which point BOTH ended up snickering, and then I ended up snickering as well and told them that this was not THAT KIND OF ESTABLISHMENT. (We do not run a Grill and Bar nee BROTHEL THANKYOUVERYMUCH). And after that they figured out I was one of their type.
Then there are these two cute girls.. well one pimp_kitten knows because she works at the base gym.. (that's all I'm gonna say because I don't know if she as LJ and if she does and she friends me one of these days.. I don't think I want to drive her off with any dropped info). And then the second girl is named Melissa.. and she is SO cute.. and she looked at my nametag, Nia and she told me I had a pretty name. Long curly black hair, petite.. mmmm yes I could eat her for dinner. But anyways I got to see her today too.. that made me sparkle and shine. (Too bad she is married, and probably straight. X_x )
I had to stay a little while afterwards because of Burger King on base having a bomb threat... so everyone that was going to go to Burger King went to the CAC instead.. it was really hopping.
Okay this is a long enough serious post.
Hurrah.. now I have a soda.
