Texts from Pechins

The stories I hear from Pechins make me glad I've made it this far in life without having to work retail, although this story isn't bad. It is over two months old, but it's a text I've had saved because I enjoy it so much and it probably says a lot about the area.

While this friend of mine was working, a family was nearby with two young girls, who were bickering and fighting in the middle of the store. Their mother turned to them and said, "If you two don't stop, I swear I will tie you to the roof like a prized deer and you will ride home like that."

Not just any deer - a prized deer.

Unfortunately, I don't know if her threat worked or not. I never thought to ask.


  1. Haha don't you just love the affection moms show to their kids these days?

  2. At least this one was funny. Fayette County parental affection, as I think I've mentioned, is usually along the lines of, "Stop fucking crying in Wal-Mart or I'm going to beat your ass when we get home."

  3. Prized deer! Priceless. I was just in Wal-Mart before Valentine's Day. It was the Greensburg Wal-Mart, but no matter. The dialogue was exactly the same as Fayette's. Nothing says "I love you!" like verbal slaps.
