"Hey," she said. "You alright?"
I nodded. "Rough customer." I said.
"You get the crazies all the time." she said. "Especially working downtown." She rubbed my shoulder. "You can't let them get to you. What did she want?"
"She was talking about snowflakes."
"They're pretty." she said. "Snowflakes are pretty. Oh," she said. "I almost forgot to tell you. You have to email a custome back."
"What's it about?"

I nodded. "Alright."
"Try and take it easy for the rest of your shift, Okay?"
I nodded.
