Conversations at Circle K

I left for work earlier than usual this morning (which much to my dismay seems be more the norm than the exception these days).  On the way I stopped for a Diet Coke at Circle K (which I do most days).  This morning a different person was working the register.

Circle K Worker: "Good Morning Sweetie"
Me (trying to hide my annoyance):"Hi"
Circle K Worker: "Need some cigarettes with that?"
Me (getting even more frustrated): "No"
Circle K Worker: "$.86 then, Have a good day dear"

WTH - why is he referring to me as sweetie and dear and what possessed him to ask me if I wanted cigarettes?  Seriously?  I worked in retail and I know all about the "add-on" sale at the register but cigarettes?  Come on?

That is so strange! Maybe the new person thought they recoginzed you as someone and they are a smoker? If not - that person is crazy to do add on cigs in this day and age! Strange!

I'm thinking he either thought you were someone else or just trashy and trying to make convo?

What a creep!! I hate when weird people call me sweetie and dear. Bugs me. And cigarettes??? Maybe he's getting paid by a tobacco company! ha.

Well you said you left early right? Do you have that deep voice in the morning? like sexy scratchy voice? Maybe he mistook it for smoker voice! No?

Freakin weirdo. I am certain we are surrounded by them. What a way to start your morning. Makes you thankful for your blessings.
