quick afternoon thoughts from Safeway

  • I just ran to Safeway to grab a few things. I saw a man walking, wearing a grey pinstripe suit and black leather slip-on leather loafers with no socks. Now, I'm no fashionista, but I thought it looked rediculous. Am I missing something?

  • There is a cashier who works there who knows my name. It is likely because it must come up on the screen after I swipe my safeway card. He remembers my name every time. Now, I know it comes up every time, but he remembers my name, even if I am not in his line. I'll be standing in the next line over and he'll say hi to me. I'll be walking by, and he'll say hi to me. One day, I had just a few things, so I was in the 10 items or less. His line is on the other end of the store, by the entrance. There were two people in line in front of me. He walked out from behind the cashier stand and saw me and yelled out "Hey A, come to my line, it's open." I wasn't sure what to do, but everyone was looking at me, so I walked down there. Am I wrong to be a bit creeped out by this?

  • On another note, has angel hair pasta disapeared from shelves? I found ooodles of noodles, none of which were angel hair. I did however, find several packages of "thin spagetti." Is this the new angel hair? Is this the PC term for angel hair?

I was hit on by a cashier. It was awkward and oddly bolstering.
