Way to go Samson!

You know those really awkward moments when a perfectly random stranger approaches you and tries to either 1). Sell you something or 2). Get you to work from home "for double the pay" ? etc. etc.

I swear I have a bulls eye or an "I'm begging you to sell me something" tattooed on my forehead. These kind of people approach me all the time. I've been stopped on multiple occasions in movie theatres/grocery stores/malls with gimmicks like "Has anyone ever told you could be a model? You should host a Mary Kay party and model the makeup" (Yeah, not falling for that one). Or "However much you're making with your current job, I can guarantee that if you work for me you will earn triple!" (Also not falling for that one.) Let's just say I've become a professional at spotting these people before they approach me. And, I run in the opposite direction.

However, I missed one this weekend. She blind-sided me...AND Mr. Ruby. In a place you wouldn't expect: PetSmart. We never saw it coming.

IMG_4324 We took the pups to get their toe nails clipped. Oh, and Sienna received a "birthday treat coupon" in the mail. We were walking to register when this disheveled woman approached us. She said "Oh my goodness! How cute! What kind of dog is that?"  Not wanting to be rude, we stopped (even though our hands were overflowing with doggie shampoo, toothpaste, treats and toys) Oh, and not to mention we were trying to control both of our dogs from not running off into the wild to play with the other dogs. I said, "She's actually a Beagle-Chihuahua  mix..." and before I could even finish, this stranger cut me off. She leaned down to pet the dogs and said, "Do you know anyone looking for part-time income?"

Confused, Mr. Ruby and I looked at each other. "No.." Cut off again. She said "You don't know anyone that's looking to work while keeping their current job? They'd be making around $2,000 a month".

Before we could even answer, Samson knew we were in trouble. He lookedIMG_4150 right at the woman. He began spinning in a couple of circles. Then he pooped. Right in front of her.

She looked a bit bewildered and mumbled "Oh...Umm..alright. Well, have a nice day."

Thank you Samson! Good Boy!

We got home and immediately gave him a treat. :)

On a side note: I've been needing a workout bag for awhile now. I have the same gym bag that I used in college. It is disgusting. I'm super excited because I just bid on this Herve Chapelier weekender tote on ebay. I REALLY hope I win it!

Amanda said...

Haha, So, I do read your blog - you keep me entertained at work! The first time Scott and I took Dotty to Petsmart she was so weirded out that she started walking around Scott while pooping at the same time. She made a perfect circumference of poop all the way around where Scott was standing. It was like a Scott and Dotty were a poop compass. We don't go to Petsmart now without doggie bags - she just can't help herself!
