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.
