I worked graveyard again last night. At about three this morning, a girl (not quite 20 years old) came into the store, having been driven by her sister. She was in labor (in labor!!!) and she felt it necessary to make a stop on the way to buy herself a pack of smokes. On her welfare card. I have been seriously depressed about it ever since.
