Welcome to Wal*Mart!

Hello! If anyone is in the Syracuse area and is bored, come look for me at Wal*Mart!

I started there last Thursday, and I'm a cashier for the summer or until I get child support. (Looks like a long term commitment....Lol!)

Yesterday, I was cashiering, and Jimmy came through my line. He leaned over and kissed me goodbye.

The next people in line were a little old guy and his wife. The little old guy asked me,"How can I get one of those?"

"One of what?" I asked.

"I'd like one of those kisses!" he laughed.

I just looked at his wife and she was just smiling. "Don't offer, because he will take you up on it!"

I explained that the man I had kissed was my fiancee. The little old guy was having fun teasing me, "Well, that's false advertising!"


I feel I need to defend the people greeter position. :) No disrespect intended to ANYONE, regardless of race, religion, sex, age, disability or anything else!


Near the end of my shift yesterday, I was asked to give the people greeter his lunch. No problem. I'm getting paid, what do I care what I do? (Within reason...)

I noticed how people would look at me strangely. I'd say 90% of them looked at my name tag. When a few ladies had returns, they talked different than they would have if I were at a register. They talked slower, louder and enunciated their words nicely.

So, people who shop at Wal*Mart:

DO NOT assume that just because someone is a People Greeter they have a disability! It's cool that society is respectful of this position, but do I look or act disabled? LOL

I thought about taking Jeff Dunham's "Walter" stance:

"Welcome to Wal*Mart. Get your $**t and get out!!"

Just Kidding. :)

Oh my heck! That is a hoot! Well, what can I say except you are pretty special and that's why I like you! But you're a knock out babe, so no, you don't look like you have a disability except kissing random strangers in line.
