Me: I like your shirt that is nice! Crash was a great movie.
(He was wearing a black t-shirt with rent Crash ***** “A knockout!” written on it. Crash was printed in white, the rest of the words in a kind of seafoam green.
Him: Yeah! It is a wonderful movie.
Me: Could you check for me if someone has returned a copy of ‘Wedding Date’?
Him: Oh yeah I have a copy available right here…
(he walks over to the other checkout counter and retrieves the movie.)
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Me: Well… if I could have your t-shirt...
(I know I shouldn’t have, but it just tumbled out of my mouth! the words kind of hang in the air...)
Do you have some extra shirts?
Him: Well, you do have to work here in order to get one, (he is still standing there while I fumble around for my card which I didn’t find, I could see the wheels turning in his head)
Me: (slightly dejected look ) oooh o.k...
Him: You know what? We do have some extra, you just cant wear it in here.
Me: (Beaming) Really? Wow!
(really beaming now when I realize he just asked me what size i would like omg) Small please.
(He walks over to the back of the store, comes back with the shirt and proceeds to check out the movie by asking for my last name, then asks to confirm my first name)
Him: Would you like a bag?
Me: Yeah sure (damn, why did I say yes? The man just gave you a free t-shirt, why do you need a bag to put the movie and the t-shirt? Well, its too late I already said yes. He puts everything in the bag and I am still beaming like a nonsense.I mentally made a note of his name, and that he was the manager)
You totally made my day, thank you.
Him: You are welcome, you just cant wear it here.
Me: Sure, sure, I wont. Thank you!
(I exit with a huge smile that would probably chase away the gathering clouds; it was just about to rain. That it still hasn't poured as i type this is not lost on this very happy girl)
Yeah Rent Crash ****"Knockout!"
