Lookin' good, smellin' pretty and feelin' lucky...

So one of my OTC stockers (let's call her May...) comes to me yesterday giggling her ass off...she tells me the following story:

It's Friday night and May is stocking in the feminine hygiene aisle when a nicely dressed female customer comes along and starts scoping out the feminine hygiene sprays. It's not uncommon for a customer to squirt a little spray out to sniff it and see what it smells like (does it really smell like fresh linen or moldy towels?)...no big deal. Apparently this customer wasn't just squirting and sniffing... May tells me that the customer was 'trying on' the sprays on her wrist and that after she found her scent of choice she hosed herself down with it. I asked for clarification..."What do you mean 'hosed herself down'?" May says, "You know, like in those Axe commercials for men..." (now I'm laughing my ass off envisioning the female version of an Axe commercial...smell like one big Baby Powder Vagina and hot men will flock to you...) So I ask if she bought the spray and May says that the customer just 'hosed down', recapped the spray, put it back on the shelf and walked away...

...after the 'hose-down' I wonder if she went over to cosmetics for glitter spray...

I was afraid she was going to say that the woman used it for its intended purpose, right there in the aisle...

Back when I worked in the Bronx for a chain that rhymes with Tight Fade, we used to get "ladies of the night" coming in to use the restroom. One night they stayed in there quite a while. Manager goes in after they leave, finds four empty cans of hair spray and a brush full of nasty hair sitting in the sink. That was the end of the free customer restrooms. Let 'em go to a gas station.

LOL! Ew!

at most chains I have worked for, women think nothing of using lipstick and recapping and moving on.

That might increase your Abreva sales...

I hate those people..they are even more annoying when they take a squirt of sex lube in their hand and go to the bathroom to lube up then leave. Gross.
