On the way into work today, I stopped and got gas at a station I frequent at least once a week. A new clerk was working this morning. When I went to pay, here’s part of the conversation we had:
Clerk: You work at John Deere?Me: No, ma’am. I got the hat for free when I bought a tractor from them.Clerk: Oh, okay. I have a new grandbaby comin’ soon.Me: Congratulations.Clerk: Ya see, JCPenney’s was havin’ this sale this past weekend. They had this cute little camouflage outfit and I got for my grandbaby. It had the John Deere logo on it.Me: … (I didn’t know how to respond)
I don’t think I’ll be wearing this hat out in public again.
