"I used to work in advertising. I hated my job and my life. One day was particularly terrible and my buddy brought me down to Rocket for lunch. I got to the checkout and this cashier was really happy go lucky, so basically I hated him right away. When I paid he said ‘Have a nice day!’. I lost it and snapped back at him ‘What the hell are you on man?’ He replied ‘The eclairs!’ and gave me one on the house. The next day I quit my job, came down here, and passed in my resume. I’ve been here for over a year now and I absolutely love my life. Try the eclair. We call them antidepressants."
At least three friends sent me this over the weekend, which I found absolutely charming.
