Seeing someone in her peripheral vision, the clerk picked her head up, ready to be of service.
And then her face visibly dropped.
I didn’t take it personally. I knew that when she saw me, she realized that I probably wasn’t buying anything, that at best, I was going to have a question irrelevant to what they were selling, and at worst, I was going to be one of those guys with an inane question about buying something for his wife.
For the record, I was looking for directions to the bathroom.
