There’s a Shoppers Drug Mart right below where I live. It’s very convenient to have a drug store nearby. The neighbourhood where I live is being gentrified and it’s become amazingly better in course of 15 years ago. It’s used to be crack central. Anyways, it’s still rough around the edges here and there, especially since I live over a transit hub where the trains and buses make it easy for people to come and go. As such, there can be a lot of shoplifting in the retails stores downstairs.
To prevent this, I’ve now recognized plain clothed loss prevention officers that work in the drug store. I go to the drug store enough to recognize one LPO in particular. If you’re observant, it’s easy to see them working. They dress in normal clothing so they look like just regular customers. They might be holding one or two items in their hand so they don’t look suspicious. They’re not shopping however. They’ll be watching people who they might be stealing. Usually they’ll be at the end of aisle so they can look like they’re examining something on a shelf but they’re actually looking down the aisle at their subject.
So I’ve seen this one LPO so many times. He’s always at the store. Once you see him, it’s hard to forget what he looks like. He’s at least six feet tall and handsome. He could be a male model if he wanted to be. He has this amazing head of dark, coiffed hair. Usually he also has just enough five o’clock shadow to add some rugged handsomeness to his look. I don’t know what his ethnicity is exactly but I’d have to guess somewhere from the Middle East, though his complexion is lighter. Whenever I see him, he’s also got this intense look on him. I’m trying but words can’t really express his fiery expression.
Well, anyways it may seem like I have this huge crush on this guy but I don’t. I’m not gay or anything but I am comfortable enough in my sexuality to acknowledge when another dude has it totally going on. Alright, I hope no one from work reads this.
