You can often find me at the local Circle K store roughly 4 days out of the week. I love fountain drinks and since giving up caffeine (Diet Pepsi...oh, how I miss you!) a year and a half ago I've found a new favorite...caffeine free Diet Coke (most of you are thinking what's the point?) and they have it on tap there! Today, even though I was running late I made my morning stop. After filling up my 32 oz. cup I made my way to the counter and here is how the conversation went:
Circle K Lady: Good Morning!
Me: Good Morning!
Circle K Lady: You're not on your phone?
Circle K Lady: Every morning you're on your phone.
Me: (at this point I'm thinking of all the embarrassing things they know about me and have heard me say...oh my!)
Me: Oh you're right...that's funny....believe it or not I have not used it yet today!
Circle K Lady: We refer to you as the phone lady around here.
Me: Wow, that's sad!!! (trying not to laugh too hard) Well, my name is Mandy Jones.
Circle K Lady: Good, now we can call you Mandy the phone lady!!!
I'm still laughing so hard it hurts!!! What I have a nickname at the local convenience store??? What has my life turned into?????? I guess it could be a whole lot worse! I'm going to make it a point to never be on my phone again in that store...ever! So, if we are talking and I pull in please don't think I'm being rude when I abruptly hang up on you.
