Summary This story takes place in an A&P store. It starts out with three young ladies who walked in the store. They catch the attention of a young man at the register. The young man’s name is Sammy and he immediately begins to dissect each of the girls. He follows them with his eyes as they wonder the store looking for the item they came for, which is Kingfish Fancy Herring Snacks. Sammy talks to his fellow register worker whose name is Stokesie. They talk about the girls for a minute before Stokesie is swamped by people trying to check out. Eventually his manager walks in and notices the girls and their ‘inappropriate’ clothing. He talks to them about their dress and the protocol on how one should be dressed when entering the store. Lengel somewhat goes back and forth with the girls for a minute before Sammy rings them up. After this occurs Sammy becomes upset with how his boss handled the situation and tells Lengel that he quits. Lengel tries to convince Sammy not to do this but his mind has already been made. He takes off his apron and walks outside, but to his dismay the girls had already left.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
