Middle aged hippie guy who I wrote about in the last post came into Jack’s on a Saturday. He never buys anything, complains about prices and gives us tips on how to make the store better. He’ll also comment on customers music selections. There was a couple looking through our Grateful Dead section and he generously gave them his opinion.
“Yeah…ya want to buy those…They’re only the greatest band…and they’re American…so…ya know”
The customers looked at him and walked away with no cd’s, hippie guy sauntered to the back counter where I was.
“Yeah…I just sold some Dead for ya…they’re the greatest band in the world, it’s a fact… Ya know the Stones and those guys they’re not American…they’re just not…they’re English…The Dead…they’re American bro…I should work here ya know”
And off he went.
