Today at GNC
I've been really impressed by misterskank 's expository writing style. I wonder if his book will be titled "True Stories in Plain English."

Today, as I worked retail at GNC, a man came in the store and said he wanted to sleep better. I pointed out a melatonin supplement to him, telling him it wouldn't "knock him out," but that it would improve his quality and length of sleep. He mentioned that he'd not been sleeping well since he came off Zoloft, an SSRI, and that he got on the drug as a way to deal with "depression," since previously he had been on "drugs and alcohol, you know." We chatted a bit, he got the supplement, and I thanked him for his business.

It's an interesting kind of interaction that I get working that job. I also talked to a tall, angular and thin young man that talked to me about "gaining some weight." I ended up talking to him for about 20 minutes, explaining how many calories it takes to overcome a high metabolism.

So, people get very open about their personal issues. It's pretty interesting. I especially like it when women come in and say they'd like to lose weight, and someday I'll start telling them, "Well, here's our thermogenic products, but I think you look quite well." I like making people feel good about themselves and surprising people, too.

It's a bit like being an advice columnist. That should be my job.
