Overheard


So, you're saying that she is an unmedicated schizophrenic and that's why you're here filling out the application?

Ummmmm... Yeah I don't think that's going to be a successful application.

Marisa said...

Maybe the personalities were fighting over who got to put their name on the app?

Kayce said...

Oh was that at the store I shop at?? HA!

Posy said...

I can understand. The mom needs a break every now and again too. ; )

Now, I wonder what diagnosis mom has?...

Kristin said...

I just have to tell you all that the look of complete confusion on the store manager's face was absolutely priceless... he was befuddled beyond belief.

s@bd said...

Well, yeah.

she needs to work, too, you know ...

ahem.

jennie said...

wow, that is some approach to employment.

Kristin said...

I am totally looking forward to her employment... I think it will make the whole marketing procedure more eventful...

Produce suddenly sounds more interesting.

Seriously, every grocery store in the city had at least one mentally challenged person working there. They're like mecca for crazy people, I think!

And to think, these are the people handling our tomatoes!

Kristin said...

Mentally challenged is fine... of course everyone deserves the opportunity to work... however, an unmedicated schizophrenic might just be pushing things... and you could tell the poor store manager was trying to sort out just how this was going to work...

Albertson's or Ralph's?

Kristin said...

Jenn - R*lphs... should make for some fun shopping.

She's got the job hands-down ... I've seen some of the employees at local supermarkets. Maybe they'll hire her as a butcher.

Couldn't an unmedicated schizophrenic be dangerous?

Shelley said...

Yes, they can be dangerous and unpredictable.

Suddenly $8 apples at Whole Foods doesn't sound so bad.

So just how many applications did the mother complete?
