Hi…I guess everybody, on some level, works with the public. But some jobs mean that you really, “work with the public.” So, Easter reminds me of when I used to work at a costume shop. Of course folks would call and ask if we had Easter Bunny costumes. And, of course, we did. Now, a surprisingly large number of people would follow up their initial inquiry with the question, “Do they (the Easter Bunny costumes) look real?” And I, dimwit that I am, would furrow my brow and respond, “Umm, real.?. you bet they do!” I would usually end my shift with a sizable urine stain on the front of my pants. Of course I drank a lot in those days so it kinda’ came with the territory. Real, man, real-like; better put down the bottle and learn to speak Chinese ‘cos, damn.
