Smile Like You Mean It

March 15, 2008

Today at work I was given the best task. You know how at carwash places they have a guy standing outside with a sign advertising the carwash place? Anyway I was to do the same but advertising Pauls’ famous “Buy One Get One Free Sale.” I was instructed to hold the sign and wave to passing motorists. For the first part, I felt like an idiot waving to all these people who didn’t wave back or even notice my friendly gesture to them. Speaking of friendly gestures, some bloke gave me the finger which was pretty funny. But that wasn’t the worst part. A young couple walked past on the footpath, and I’ll be honest, the lady was a bit of a slammin hottie. Anyway they walked past and she said, “Don’t you just have the best job?” I pretended she was just joking around and agreed, but deep down I noticed her air of superiority and my vulnerability in my fluro yellow shirt, and didn’t appreciate it. The best part of this task though, was that on a 30 degrees day it was actually warmer outside than inside. That’s Pauls for ya.

  1. Ahh. I always honk and wave to those people. Sometimes I yell stuff out the window, too, like “show us your legs”.
    I’m going to make a point to drive past Paul’s Warehouse now, just in case it’s you out there.
