Not that it was a bad job, Courtney often thought, she'd had ones that were worse. The way she saw it, aside from the people who actually ran the store, the people who worked at Food Barn, like most other supermarkets, fell into four categories.
Finally, there was the last category, the one in which she fell in. Which wasn't as bad as it sounded, Courtney reminded herself.
While she would never be rich, she knew, her salary and the alimony checks from her ex-husband allowed her to live a comfortable, if ordinary life. Courtney had married Jim Davis, three years her senior, right out of high school.
For the first time in their marriage, Courtney had been glad that they'd been unable to have children.
If Jim wanted out of their marriage, well then she was more than happy to let him go.
Two more customers paid for their shopping orders and Courtney closed out her register to take her break.
Rather than grab a cup of coffee in the small break room in the back of the store, she decided to get a breath of fresh air.
Reluctantly, Jim agreed, with the stipulation of course that the alimony portion of the payments would end when she got remarried. It was a stipulation, however, that hadn't worked out as Jim expected.
He was sure that, in a year, two at most, Courtney would be remarried and he would be off the hook for at least the long-term aspect of his debt.
