the quiznos stalker story

oh, and another story of the creepy, then i shall stop updating for the day :)

first of all, this is my third back to school working for officemax. every single summer, we hire a plethora of new people that come in and basically annoy the HELL out of us for a month and a half until the Season is over and they go back to school. this year, however, i think we hit the freaking GOLD MINE of new people. i love every single one of them. they're all fun, witty, sweet, and fast learners. i sort of wish that i could trade one or two of the long-term people for abby and ken (who will be leaving for school in a month), and am happy that Hai is staying on after it's over. in all of the temporary workers hired for BTS or Christmas, i've always at LEAST found 2 or 3 of them that i wanted to strangle, and i would like to believe i can get along with just about anyone. okay, maybe only 1 or 2.

aaaaaaaaaaaaanyhoo. Abby and i were stuck up front cashiering together yesterday, although we were DEAD. (i've never seen it this slow during BTS, generally we're getting spanked with a wooden plank at this point and everyone's in tears. i blame officedepot for opening up nearby and sending out all those fabulous coupons. you jerks.) she yells across the terminals (we're at opposite ends)..

abby: "oh, i had forgotten to tell you, the manager at quiznos was asking about you."
aubrey: "..... QUIZNOS?"
abby: "yeah. i didn't catch his name, but he was telling everyone what to do, so he must have been a supervisor. he asked how you were and said he hadn't seen you in awhile."
aubrey: "..... QUIZNOS? what did he look like?"
abby: "mid twenties.. short... average looking."
aubrey: "..... QUIZNOS? i... haven't eaten there in over six months."
abby: "well, you must have made one hell of an impression, then. he was sad you hadn't been in."
aubrey: "um... when i DID go there, it was sporadically and i never talked to anyone, other than to order my sammich, tell them yes, i wanted a drink, inhale my lunch, and race back. i never talked to anyone other than that."
abby: "huh. you should start eating at Quiznos again."

in saying this to coworkers, i came across another one, Deb, who had experienced the same thing, first when she called in an order a month or so ago, whomever answered the phone asked "is this Aubrey?".. and another time she went in, a guy in his mid twenties said that he hadn't seen me in awhile and that he was hoping i would start coming back.

what the hell. i'm creeped out in a curious way. although i no longer eat bread, i should swing by and see if they do have something on their menu that i can digest, and see if i can find this mystery man.

it isn't one of you, is it?

It was me. Sorry. I have this thing where I have to meet all my LJ friends, so I figured the best thing to do was pretend to be a boy from Quiznos asking for you. Yes, the easier thing would be to actually go in your work, but why make it easy?? :P

seriously though, why do people think that asking for people they barely see won't creep them out?

i don't think it would have been so creepy, except that he seemed pretty... almost like he would even think officemax or our colors (khaki and navy sexxiness!) and would instantly go "aubrey? is that aubrey? has anyone seen aubrey?"

i never did find out who that was.
