It amuses me when people explain themselves to keep from being embarrassed, or because they're doing something they don't usually do (or don't want me to think they usually do). Does that make sense? Like today, an exec came in to grab his newspaper (we usually deliver them), and he told me that it was because someone emailed him and told him to read an interesting story in it. And the other day we were in the frozen foods section behind a lady with a cart, and when she got to the end of the aisle she made a huge swooping 180 with her cart to go back the other way without looking around her first. We backed up and she said "I have to go the other way now." I smiled at her and we kept going, and so did she: "I was just hoping nobody would be behind me when I did that."

I was wondering what she said. It sounded like she was sorta mumbling to herself...

Maybe she was mumbling, but I'm not sure. Whatever she was doing, it was weird.
