Life Advice from a Wal-Mart Cashier

The burger that put me through acid reflex hell
The burger that put me through acid reflex hell

Who doesn’t love Wal-mart in some form or fashion? They are the conglomerate to everything that we really need in life, right? They have an eye center, hair salon, grocery store, automotive department, portrait studio and every home department one would ever need. To add to the list; life advice giving.

I was in a Wal-Mart last Thursday night. I had just enjoyed a great dinner. Spicey, but good. I had fusion Asian food which consisted of Kim-Chi on a hamburger. It was delicious at the time. About an hour after I had finished eating it, I started getting really bad acid reflex. It was to the point that I couldn’t breathe at times. My eyes would squint and my body tense up. Not everyone experiences acid reflex, so some will never have the pleasure or displeasure of experiencing this.

Back to the Wal-Mart portion. I reach the register. I have a moment of terrible acid reflex and a full on body reaction and become breathless. The Wal-Mart cashier then tells me I look uncomfortable. I explain to her that I am having a bad case of acid reflex. She then says, “sit down, buy some Gas-X and don’t eat spicey food again,” All said in am amazing accent. Nonetheless the advice was not ground breaking or life changing, but was endearing and entertaining in a moment of sheer discomfort.

Have a wonderful day 🙂
