Not cruel, just prudent.
I seen something that has bothered me a bit lately. I `m the opening cook at a kfc. It was just me and the opening shift leader there. She was counting the money in a tiny office up front, facing away from me. I was in the back of the store and with my peripheral vision i seen what i though was her with her head turned looking at me. so i looked straight at her. She was looking away from me and down at the money, but what i can only describe as a ghost or a demon in her, still had its head turned looking at me and turned merging back into her. I have known her for a long time and she is not herself.
