Default I think I'll ask for a commission ...

Finally back at work after two weeks off due to the flu.

Just my luck ... I was on the express lane yesterday AND today.

However, today had its compensations ...

For some reason, shortly after the store opened, the order came down from on high: put all small seedless watermelons on sale at 96 cents each.

So not surprisingly, a lot of customers were grabbing them.

Then one lady came through and I was chatting with her, and in the process told her about the good deal on the watermelons.

Customer: "What?? NINETY-SIX CENTS EACH??"

Me: "Yep. I'm not a huge fan of watermelons but for that price I think I'll get one myself."

Customer takes her groceries and leaves and I forget about the conversation.

Five minutes later, here she comes again ... wheeling one of the smaller buggies that is loaded down with a veritable Mount Everest of watermelons.

She tells me she works at a local school and these will make GREAT snacks for the kids.

A couple of other customers sounded interested -- but nobody else to this degree.

No customers around to comment on the lady's wonderfully stacked melons?
That's a missed opportunity there that some of us would have taken

I think it's understood that such comments are your job.

I want to keep this job for at least another year, thanks.

But it truly is a shame nobody else thought to say it ...
