She's often moody and exclusive, yet always remains focused on the store. She critiques, often unwilling to give praise. Sometimes she engages in long discussions with the store sales rep, who speaks loudly and in succession. She's high strung enough, but the rep seems to infuse her with much needed positivity. She's burnt out. Many of the customers have known her over twenty years: doing what they do, watching her do what she does. There's an invisible wall between me, tending the machines, and the business speak between them all. This is her world. You're in it or you're not.
