People Watching

We shot one of our TV spots inside a QuikTrip this morning. 8am. We were told that this particular store is slamma jamma busy from about 7-8:30am because that is the shift change at Raytheon- an aircraft facility. They were so right. That place was alive. At one point I think the tile even jumped up and got some coffee.

It was interesting because, as usual, I was the first one there by a long shot. Long shot meaning half an hour before anyone else. This gave me plenty of time to people watch. This is my account of what I witnessed.

People at the ATM machine look like the most unhappy people in the whole store.

There are FOURTEEN different kind of 20 oz Coca Cola products in the cooler. I don't mean coke, sprite, etc. I mean Coke, Diet Coke, Coke with Lime, Diet Coke with Lime, Diet Coke with Splenda, Diet Coke with Splenda Lime Vanilla Lemon Caffeine Free WITH A CHERRY ON TOP! Does the world NEED this much Coke? FOURTEEN folks!

In one hour, the floor gets mopped three times.

I don't think anyone knows how to pump their own gas. Every two minutes the cashier has to re-explain over the intercom how to remove the pump, push the buttons, blah blah blah.

It appears HOT DOGS and TAQUITOS have replaced the old fashioned cereals and donuts for BREAKFAST! 12, count them, 12 people bought hot dogs and/or taquitos (and one chicken sandwich) before NINE a.m.!!! I. Wanted. To. Puke. A few people bought slushies as part of their balanced breakfast plan.

We were able to make inappropriate BTK (the wichita serial killer) jokes with a Wichita policeman and he laughed with us!

You know the little metal sleeve that all the coffee cups are stuffed into? The store manager walks by about every 5 minutes to push these back into the sleeve.

Last, but not least, they sell peanut butter hot chocolate. Gross. Maybe if they made hotdog hot chocolate with mustard flavored whipped cream they could make more money.

Hey you need to try some of these things and get a new experiance on life i love my bean and cheese burrtios for breakfast dad
