I have been working at Target for a couple of weeks now. For the most part this job has been entertaining and fun. We are enjoying the discount too. I am a fan of the shorter shifts...yesterday was just tooooo long. Anyway, I have tons of people come through my line. I get all types. I have the all business, the cute kids that have saved their pennies for a toy or something, the tired mom usually accompanied by a screaming child (now I know what I look like), the slightly creepy people, the dog people, and the instant friend.
Let me explain the last one. These guys are my favorite. They are incredibly friendly. I have only had three come through my line. The first one was a WIC mom. She was so happy, loving her baby, loving the clearance section and generally seemed grateful for life. I wanted to be friends with her..slip her my number for a fun lunch or something. But, I would only come across as creepy Target lady so I didn't. Yesterday, I had a couple come through my line. Right away, the lady says, "Hi Cathy!" I, of course, panicked because I didn't recognize her. Then I remembered my fun name tag. Through out the entire transaction they are talking about their recent move, their adventures, and just joking around. I loved it. I hope they come through my line again. These are the people that make me want to be a better, kinder person.
