Quirky Humans: Ponytail Lady

She comes in almost daily, likes Molson dry and always carries a small green bag that she somehow manages to fit all her groceries in no matter what. She’s told me she’s lost 300 pounds, and has a new target of at least 50 more to be under 200. Very sweet lady.

She wears at least 8 colourful hair elastics on one ponytail. I’m pretty sure they have a specific order as well but I’ve never been the super observant type.

Around October she lost her father after he was taken to intensive care in the hospital. She confided in the cashiers on night shift. There were about three of us girls hanging around and we each gave her hugs and told her she’d be alright, she’d get through this. She still smiles and she still tells jokes now, so I guess she’s moving on. Her husband’s a real piece of work but I can tell he supports her in everything she does. No matter how weird and quirky she was.
