Many years ago, when I still worked in the retail world – and paychecks were something you walked to the bank:
How are you today?
Oh, you’d have to buy me a drink.
MAN (next wicket customer)
You should always be happy?
Nina turns to face him.
Oh really? My Mother could have just died.
The man starts to bluster.
If your response to every life circumstance is to smile
you need therapy
The man turns red and purple with impotent rage
I don’t see you smiling.
He turns and leaves the bank.
Nina looks at the 5 bank employees . mute and mouths hanging open.
well, bad mood transfer complete. See ya gals next week.
