PHOTO INDEX: OUR INTERVIEW LOGO.
I recently talked with an older worker who was laid off from one of those big box stores. She handed out food samples.
Q: How did you find out?
A: They called us in one day. Said see ya. Budget cutbacks.
Q: But the company makes a billion a month.
A: Yeah, tell me about it. I don’t see any of it.
Q: What was your job?
A: I handed out food samples, tried to get people to buy the product.
Q: Did you have any favorites?
A: (Laughing) the easy ones that are self contained. The chilis and soups are tough with the little cups they give you.
Q: Why did you work?
A: To pass the time. My husband is gone 11 years now and I just needed to get out of the house and socialize.
A: The married ones are afraid I’ll take their husbands, and my other girlfriends are dead.
Q: So no BFFs?
Q: Never mind. How about a senior center, they have a lot of activities there don’t they?
A: I suppose but there’s a lot of old people there. I don't want to hang out there.
Q: How old are you?
Q: Oh pardon me.
A: How old are you?
A: You’re a baby yet.
A: Your welcome.
