(no subject)


"Mr. Happy" (or just Happy) is the gatekeeper of the Slurpee in the u-district between the hours of 7PM and 7AM at the 7-11 down across from Nordheim. I really can't think of any other employee I adore more.

If you've never experienced this, the sales clerk always asks if you are happy or not. If you say no, he will go nuts with smiles and "BE HAPPY!"s and such. Then, on your way out, whether or not people are in line behind you (he will say it to them too), it's beeeEEEE HAPPY! THANK YOU! COME AGAAAAIN (as though he has just won the lottery and is sharing the love).

Does anybody else have fun stories of that lovable bad ass?
