It's no wonder zombies are so popular now, that is what we've become. We just go through the routine. We are checked out. Now we both stayed polite, I wasn't upset, she didn't seem to be. But it was fascinating to me how much smoother her job would go if she looked up and invested some attention into her surroundings and job. No it's not the most glorious job, but I've worked a register before, people are generally happy they came and got what they needed and are now ready to leave. I worked at a crafts store and people were also excited to tell me what they were going to do with their purchases. But you have to look up. It won't slow you down. It will make your time go faster and your experience richer even if you don't like what you are doing.
Take the time to look up, focus, observe...what have you been missing???? Why have we stopped investing in our lives? Is it really that bad? And if it is that bad what inspiration or connections are you missing because you've checked out?
