It's YouTube Monday people. You've been waiting all weekend for this moment, haven't you? It's ok to admit that. We're all friends here.
Today I'm bringing you a funny HEB commercial featuring Brent Barry. For those of you not from Texas, HEB is a popular grocery story chain.
My first job was at HEB. The one over there on Culebra and, uh, Tezel? Grissom? I don't remember. I'm not sure I ever knew. I started as a bagger and then soon became a checker. I'm telling you I was a damn checker prodigy. Russet potatoes, produce code 4072. I still gots it!
One thing that's a lot different about the west coast... checkers are slow out here. At HEB they kept track of items scanned per minute. I was around 30-35. Out here the checkers top out at about 10. Part of that is the setup of the registers, but I mostly blame the darn unions.
HEB needs a damn baggers union. I remember doing "cart runs." Middle of the summer, 98 degrees, blazing sun, and I'm out wrangling grocery carts for an hour at a time. And the humidity reeked all sorts of havoc on my hair.
