so i was at rite-aid the other day getting a prescription filled and as i was waiting, there was this older woman getting her blood pressure checked.  upon closer inspection, it looked like she had fallen asleep while waiting for the machine to do its job.  about a minute or so later, the machine beeps letting her know that it was done, she looks over at me and says, “sir.  sir?  are you waiting on this machine?”  i tell her i’m not and then she gets up and walks over to me like she wants to say something.  Her hair is disheveled, she’s got lipstick all on her teeth (and i don’t usually notice this kind of thing so you know it was pretty bad).  She gets right up in my ear and whispers, “watch the amount of salt you eat when you’re younger or you’ll pay for it when you’re older.”

at this point i’m thinking, “ok, crazy lady, thanks for the health advice.”  she starts to walk away and then turns back to me and says, “they say diets high in salt is what’s killing everyone these days.”  i told her i agree that high sodium diets are the indirect cause of a lot of deaths in america.  and then she goes to the counter and says that she just tested her blood pressure and that she’s close to death.  they tell her she’s not and ask if she’s under medication.  and then she sits back down.

crazy lady.
