On the day I want to tell you about, I was in the Mens department cleaning things up and putting clothes away when an elderly man politely asked me for help. He wanted to know where the pajamas were. As I was talking to him, he let out a fart. I don't think he even realized he did it, or if he did, he totally hid it well! Now some people would just start laughing. But not me. I held my composure and showed him where the pajamas were. While inside my head I'm thinking, OMG I can't believe he did that!
You would probably be surprised to know that it was not an uncommon occurance. A lot of older people shop in my store and there have been many times I have walked by an elderly man or woman and heard them pass gas. But hey, that's life! Sometimes you get hit with the unexpected! My job might stress me out a lot, but it never gets boring with the kind of customers I get!
So I told my mom this funny story and she laughed. "Well," she said, "That's what happens when you get old!" Hmmm maybe I don't want to get old! :)
