Meeting Jean Valjean (ironically in the bread aisle)

I’m walking around the grocery store, looking for a snack.

A big dude and his friend, both tatted out and both wearing matching black wife-beaters, approach.

“Hey, can I ask you a question?”

“What’s up?”

“Do you guys hire felons?”

“Err…”

“I just got out of the pen 4 years ago.”

“Umm…”

“And I got 2 felonies.”

“Hmm…”

“And I saw this ad for EMT and paramedic classes. I thought maybe I could get some training, y’know?”

“Good luck, man.” (Please don’t hurt me.)
