A story.

Today I went to CVS to buy some soap and shampoo. After picking out said items off the shelves, I waited in line to pay. I was the last one on the line, and there was only one kid ringing people up. When I went up to pay, the kid said hi, and asked if I had a CVS card, and I said no, and then he completed the transaction and I paid and he put the products I purchased in a bag. Then, after all this completely normal stuff happened, as I was putting my wallet away, I saw him grab an almost empty bottle of mouth wash that he had next to the cash register. He opened it up, poured some mouth wash into the cap, and drank it in front of me.

Now, I know that this particular CVS is notorious for sucking as a place of employment. It has an even worse reputation than the Shoprite located in that very same shopping center. I know this because I know several people who used to work in that CVS, and I know several people who used to work in that Shoprite, and as much as the Shoprite people say it was the worst job ever, everyone is in agreement that CVS is way worse. And I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to survive such horrible work environments, co-workers, customers, and most importantly in the cases of these two particular establishments, bosses. But mouth wash? Seriously?
