My neighborhood convenience store has a large staff of uniformly surly and unpleasant people. It's like there's something in the water or something. So when I walked in tonight and saw a sign on the door that said, "Now hiring friendly people" it was a real challenge not to comment to the surly cashier, "Saw the sign on the door. They're going to replace all of you with friendly people, huh?"
But I still have to go there for my oatmeal cookies and frozen burritos, so I didn't. Another regret to add to the list.
