Things I See and Think When I’m Stuck as the Greeter at Work

There are so many things that go through my head or that I see while I’m stuck being the greeter at my job. Here are some of those things, for your entertainment or derision. 

Stuff I See:

  1. Someone racing into their parking spot to try and run over the seagulls
  2. Police cars patrolling the parking lot
  3. People speeding past the stores. I mean seriously they’ve gotta be going like 0-30 in two seconds, in a parking lot. 
  4. Someone putting their cigarette out on the ground right outside the doors and keeping the half used cigarette. 
  5. People parking in handicap who shouldn’t. 
  6. Parents scolding their children. 
  7. Someone driving up and down the rows like five times. 
  8. Solicitors. (I got my eye on you)
  9. People lounging in the store furniture. Cause all that shopping got them so tired. 
  10. Strip mall security guard driving by, again.

Things I Think:

  1. My feet are killing me. 
  2. Please button your shirt up before you come in. 
  3. Yes I am here to keep you from stealing, so don’t joke around or I’ll radio my manager. 
  4. I need to pee. 
  5. He’s got a nice ass. 
  6. They need to give me something to do.
  7. I’m starving. 
  8. Oh look someone else is speeding. 
  9. If you’re going to undo the bench then put it back together.
  10. There’s a trash can right there don’t put it in the cart. 
  11. I wonder if anyone made dinner. 
  12. That guys cute…and he’s with someone. Of course, like I had a chance. 
  13. Oh crap I know this person. 
  14. I wonder what I could make for dinner. 
  15. I really wanna go to Target but I’m so tired. 
  16. That line is long they should let me come in and run a register. No ones tried stealing anything yet. 
  17. Someone needs to set off the alarm so I have something to do. 
  18. Oh you want me to get the hoses that are all the way in the back of the store, even though I’m not allowed to leave the doors. 
  19. Maybe, I’ll stop somewhere for food, but I’m so tired.
  20. I started at 4:30 and its 5:15…I’ve only been here 45 minutes. 
  21. Dude, stop driving past the store, you look like you’re casing the joint. Just pick a spot and wait for your spouse there. 
  22. Please keep walking, please keep walking.
  23. Yes this is an easy job, doesn’t mean I enjoy doing it.
  24. I really want to know what the security guard is doing when he scans our door. Is he like checking to see how many times our alarms have gone off, or is he just looking for something to do. 
  25. I’m an employee, not a genie. If we don’t have any more of those chairs, we don’t have any more. 
  26. If you weren’t going to take the cart to your car than why didn’t you just leave it with me. It’s the only thing I have to do. 
  27. Just let me get the cart for you before you pull something. It’s obvious you can’t figure it out. 
  28. What’s with all the WWE looking guys today.


An Introverted soul with a love for the extraordinary and ordinary. I have big dreams of publishing my own book or maybe one day opening a bakery/restaurant. My life however is constantly changing and just when I think I've figured things out, I get thrown a curve ball. I love writing, which is why I started this blog. I also love to engage in conversations with people about the things I love. So be prepared for a wide assortment of crazy :)
