The assignment was simple. Write in first person about someone who is in line at their local grocery store and the person in front of them is paying in pennies.
- Significantly different character (from yourself)
- Voice has to show who they are
This is exactly why I never go to the grocery store. I’ve got enough going on in my life, I shouldn’t be bothered with such trivial things. I mean for fucks sake, this lady is paying with pennies, I don’t even remember the last time I had a penny in my wallet.
The housekeeper should have gone out and done this, what am I even paying her for? Its’ not that hard to get everything on a grocery list. What I do is actually hard, having to work all day, then coming home to my wife’s friends who “need” cream cheese with their salmon and crackers. At least I got a pack of smokes out of this.
