The generous cashier

in fun •  11 months ago

Whoosh! Oh my goodness! It is cold out there!

So, I was sitting at home and got thirsty for some juice. So, I decided to walk over to the gas station, which is maybe 150 yards from my house, was wearing boots, coat, hat and gloves like you’re supposed to ... And was shivering by the time I got there - took maybe 45-60 seconds ....

I moved pretty slowly once I was inside. Grabbed an orange and cranberry. Only the cooler wasn’t working. They were lukewarm, which seemed ironic to me for some reason.... As I walked back to pay, some guy was brushing off the candy display with a feather duster below the counter and talking loudly to the cashier in Arabic as they both laughed about something.

The cashier looked at me, smiling, and he said in a thick accent, “Are you able to find what you need my brother?”

“Yup. Your cooler is out again though”, I said as I handed him the bottles to ring up with a twenty to pay for them.

“The man came to look and said it is a burnt motor or something, will fix it soon”, he responded.

As he put the bottles in a plastic bag he added, “These are not bad though, my brother!”

“They’ll be plenty cold by the time I get home.”

“Ah yes! You are right. Thank you for the business and take care, my brother!”

“We’ll do”, I said, 6FC7B336-80D0-4DEB-A180-FDA1ADBAE5B3.jpegtrying not to laugh...

Then, I held my breath as I began the quick shuffle home...

I was sure this photo is in Finland 🇫🇮 but no, it’s not. That photo sucked me in and had to read the story, brother. Love the way you tell your story, you seem to have a gift.

Get your skis on! Or get your sleigh! Lol. Keep warm.

This is so funny. I'm glad he was nice though.

Very interesting story. Kind of reminds me of myself. Kind of funny too i wonder sometimes what life is trying to throw at us but anyways very good story.

Good post👍 followed and upvote you hope you will do same for me😊

Good story and picture awsome too

Oye aqui otro mas que quedo atrapado con tu foto y pues con la historia. Suerte amigo sigue asi, un saludo @angelljesus

You need to get that store owner to move the shop a mile or 2 down the road, So you can make longer stories ,, lol

Nice story. Winter always brings interesting stories for people.

Why did this get so many upvotes? Not to be rude, but the grammar is so poor that it makes the story hard to read, there’s no explanation on what this story is about, and worst of all, the story is boring! and pointless!

Interesting story. Have a great winter!!

"How did you know I had Shadowhunter blood? Was there some way you could tell?"
The elevator arrived with a final groan. Jace unlatched the gate and slid it open. The inside reminded Clary of a birdcage, all black metal and decorative bits of gilt. "I guessed," he said, latching the door behind them. "It seemed like the most likely explanation."
"You guessed? You must have been pretty sure, considering you could have killed me."
He pressed a button in the wall, and the elevator lurched into action with a vibrating groan that she felt all through the bones in her feet. "I was ninety percent sure."
"I see," Clary said.
There must have been something in her voice, because he turned to look at her. Her hand cracked across his face, a slap that rocked him back on his heels. He put a hand to his cheek, more in surprise than pain. "What the hell was that for?"
The other ten percent," she said, and they rode the rest of the way down to the street in silence.”
