  1. The good news about these two dope Walgreen’s employees is that even if they can’t return to work there are plenty of other low-wage earners in this area who can put on a Walgreen’s shirt and stand like a zombie behind the counter.

    Seriously, only idiots who earn minimum wage would work up in SF.
