People in the express lane with a whole cartload of groceries
He's a big dude with a medicine ball belly who seems dimly aware of his surroundings, she's all tatted-up and obviously tweaking on meth
they had two sons, the oldest of which was dutifully bagging up their groceries when their EBT card ran out and they started to have to pull big packages of steaks and chops out
the store employee in the adjacent checkout line says "hey, you're pretty good at that, you should apply for a job... are you 16?"
The kid says "in two months", and gives him a big grin
they finally get their groceries all together and as they're leaving the kid turns to the people in the checkout line and says "sorry about the delay, folks"
it broke my heart
