only at walmart

joe and i trekked to the cartersville walmart last night to inquire about ear piercing. yep, at 25, i am finally thinking about getting it done. i asked the girl working in jewelry how long you have to keep the initial studs in and how to prevent infection. she told me about her ear piercing, then said, “i had this done three days ago and look how infected it is,” as she, who was not the most fit person i’ve ever seen, pulled up her shirt and showed us her pierced belly button, which was red and purple. “i’m not supposed to take the ring out, but i’ve already changed it three times.” that could be why it’s infected, dear…needless to say, we were pretty disgusted.

but wait. my story gets better. joe bought a second alarm clock to make sure he got up on time today for his first day at his new job. she rang his purchase up, took his money, got his change and shut her drawer — slamming the corner of her jacket in the drawer as she closed it. she freaked out and started calling everyone and their mother trying to find someone to open her drawer. joe’s response? “why doesn’t she just take her jacket off?”
