I seem to have the weirdest experiences at QFC in the morning.
This morning, the checker asked me if I wanted paper or plastic for my purchase. I said paper. He said, "That will be 20 cents more." And I said, "Excuse me?"
Apparently people aren't awake to catch comments like that at 6:30 in the morning. He looked half asleep himself, as he seemed to take 10 minutes to bag some yogurt, fruit, and milk.
In small talk, I mentioned that I'm surprised I didn't miss the comment, as I was tired from not sleeping well. He said ,"That usually means you'll have a bad day. I mean...oops, I hope I didn't curse you." And then he knocked on wood.
There was the other episode at a different QFC more than a year ago, when I was walking in, and the checker asked for a hug.
Weird weird weird. Next, they'll tell me that space aliens run QFC.
