New Age Pot Smokers

Some of you know that my oh-so-glamorous job is that of a shop assistant at a supermarket. No.... I'm not proud of my job, I know I can do better than being stuck in a shit job with zero room for advancement. But it pays the bills and, I think I've mentioned before the other reasons why I stay here.... anywho.....

I was in charge of the cigarette counter the other day, serving a customer, when this bloke, lets call him Drug Fucked Gypsy, came up and in a not so quite voice says

DFG: "Oy, is there a tobacconist around here"
Me: thinking he was incredibly rude for not waiting his turn because i am TOTALLY anal about manners and waiting your turn etc, I ignored him.
DFG: "HEY I SAID IS THERE A TOBACCONIST AROUND HERE"
Me: (apologizing to my customer, turn to the man) there is one down in the next complex
DFG: (obviously thinking I have a hearing impairment ) DO THEY SELL BONGS?
Me: ummmm, I'm not sure
DFG:(with great urgency) I REALLY NEED A BONG

and with that, he walked off in search of his "bong"

When did it become necessary to have a bong to smoke pot? I remember way back when, that an old OJ bottle and a cone made out of the paper from a cigarette packet was enough.

I teach full time, but work part time in my family's business. I work in retail although I am qualified to do the hands on as well. It's amazing how rude some people are and also how creepy. We now have to lock the till and wear keys around our necks as a few months ago a druggie opened the till and ran off with the money. My brother chased him and caught him. That's so bizzare that guy telling the world he needs a bong.

Good Lord - he was in a supermarket! Do kids today not know about the wonders of hollowing out an apple to make a pipe??

Is this in BrisVegas? How lovely for you. I used to work in retail and know how stimulating and well paid it is. Ack. When I worked at Kmart though, I was fairly pleased with the discount card. I suppose a 15 year old is easily pleased...
