Wally goose robin again!
I go up to the core to help bring down a line, and some dude gets out of line and starts walking to a closed register, before I even got into the core and just stands there. I’m on the opposite side of him! There’s a closed sign. The register is dead. And I say quite loudly, “I’m open over here!”
He decided to flip a gasket at that, yell at me then ask for my store manager and the corporate number to complain.
I don’t know how clearer I could have been.
Omg a fellow wawa robin?!

Artistic Sculpting With Paint Art by Justin Gaffrey
I took a 7 week coast to coast road trip after being laid off from Boeing. I didn’t have a camper but realized that being able to pull off the road at a rest or truck stop was the way to go to make the trip affordable. With a few sheets of 1/2” plywood and misc. hardware this is what I came up with. The effort was well worth the time and materials.
