I'm a crier, part II

I have a different relationship with grocery stores than most. Grocery shopping can cause anxiety (well, for me, at least); however, I know when I'm all done, I'll get to talk with one of my friendly clerks. That's my favorite part: the check out. It's the carrot at the end of the stick.

In preparation for my move, I've mentally primed myself to say goodbye to my bishop, to my visiting teachers, to my Primary, to the Cartys, to my coworkers, to my dear students; however, I didn't prep myself to see my friendly cashiers for the last time. So there I am, waiting in line on a Wednesday night to pay for my strawberries with tears flowing down my cheeks.

Oh, how I'll miss my clerks! Do you think they'll miss me? Do you think they'll even notice that I don't frequent their Ralphs anymore? Do they know how their smiles have helped me so? Probably not, but they have a special place in my heart: my Canyon Crest Ralph's employees.

(Please note that this post is supposed to make you laugh. Please laugh. That is my goal. If you don't laugh, I might cry. lol)
