  • She was chewing on a big wad of bubblegum that big.

  • I'm not even kidding. I was helping her out.

  • She tried on at least 30 to 40 pieces of clothing.

  • And then I rang her up at the end because that's

  • what you're supposed to do.

  • And of course, I had to go back to

  • the fitting room after to clean up

  • I opened up a fitting room

  • and the clothes were just all over the floor,

  • not even one piece of code and they were all over the floor.

  • There were shoe prints on some of

  • the pieces of clothing that was foundation all over

  • some of the pieces of clothing.

  • It was a disaster.

  • So I cleaned those up

  • and I start hanging them up in the fitting room itself.

  • And then I look at the ground again

  • and I noticed that big wad of bubble gum just stuck to

  • the floor surrounded in spit.

  • that this was going to be her first big pageant

  • for some reason.

  • She just felt like she just knew everything.

  • I tried to help pick dresses for her.

  • And everything I picked. There's a problem.

  • It started to become less about the actual clothing

  • and more about me and my tastes

  • and anything I picked wouldn't be good enough.

  • The attitude was reeking from

  • a mile away that my boss pulled me over

  • at one point and she's like hey, wrap it up.

  • She needs to go she ended up walking out

  • not getting anything because she just

  • I know she just didn't want to work with me

  • let's forward two weeks later

  • the reigning Miss Florida USA is having a really big party.

  • I walk over to the reigning Miss Florida USA

  • and like OMG!,she's like OMG! I look over

  • I wanted to know she'd like me to me to be like a decoy

  • or something, which I was willing to do.

  • And she's like, oh, but she's blind. So it's fine.

  • I was like, okay, so why are you concerned?

  • She started looking around, you know,

  • she's like, going through all the little packages

  • and she spots like, honestly was like a really big one,

  • like right at the top. Okay,

  • I was like, you know, I'll go get a ladder.

  • I'll be right back and she's like, Oh, that's not necessary.

  • She starts climbing the adult toys wall

  • like she's rock climbing or something.

  • She kicks this shelf that's like near the very top

  • and tell me why they like come crashing down

  • and like pelting the grandma and I was just like,
