|I met Sean Connery today, among other things

Haha, fooled you.
Well, at work today, I *did* have a customer whose real name *is* Sean Connery. When they slide a card for payment, their name shows up on my screen. I had to do a double-take, and I actually asked him if his name was Sean Connery. He's joking when he says "Yeah, I changed my name so I could get free groceries here". LOL He's only in his mid to late 30's, I think, but he said "You're too young to know who he is!". "Nah, no way!" A co-worker joked saying he must've stolen the credit card of the Sean Connery we're all thinking of. I was so amused.
After my break at work, I went into Erika's line to pay for stuff after I'd already eaten it. Robert was teasing Erika calling her "Mommy". She had a pregnancy scare, but I'd told her to wait a week or two for her period before freaking out. Sure enough, she had her period.
We were discussing that, when I was behind a customer. As we were chatting, I thought we were being discreet in talking about that, as I brought up the fact my period is due mid-week next week (during my visit with Pamela, geez). The customer was someone I had in my line before, and he seemed nice... but I guess he still put 2 and 2 together, and said our conversation bothered him. In a very lighthearted manner, I said "Well you could always tune us out". I wasn't being rude at all. But I guess he complained about us once before he left, then called back to complain again.
So we both got two separate lectures about it. I just didn't see what the big deal about it was. I was *technically* a customer, as I wasn't back on the clock yet, and the conversation was between me and her, not us and him. Like I said, we were discreet. Whatever.
