I was on the sales floor earlier today putting stuff on the shelves when I noticed an elderly woman with a questioning look on her face. I asked her if I could help her find something. Kitchen towels. She could not find them. I directed her to where some were. As she stood looking at them, I asked if there was a particular color she was looking for. She told me no. I nodded and started to walk away. Then, she added, "I just wanted to dry my hands off." I spun around, but could only give a dumbfounded look as I saw her wiping her hands on the towel she had selected. Why someone would go looking for merchandise for something like that is beyond me. I still cannot think of what to say about that. If she had told me she needed to wipe her hands off, I could have pointed her to the restrooms where she could use the paper towels.
Later, a co-worker and I were working near an aisle and two Marines walked up. My co-worker knew at least one of them from high school. They talked for a few minutes. She mentioned she had just gotten out of training, where she was stationed, and confirmed (to me) she was working with her recruiter for a couple weeks before heading to her first duty station. After they walked away, my co-worker expressed disbelief that she had even spoken to him. Apparently, the two did not really hang out in school, and he did not particularly care for either of them. I think it is funny how faulty the memories of some people are.
