Went to the water fountain and saw two managers and a security guard hovering around the restrooms, looking anxious. My first thought was that someone had died, but Mark told me (unasked) that “A woman’s in there and her water broke.”
Wow! How exciting! I went back to cashwrap and called people in other departments, telling them, “A woman’s in labor in the level one women’s room…No, it’s not a joke…No, it’s for real: Mark told me. Pass it on!”
I thought there might be a lot of commotion, but apparently, the paramedics arrived and left through the loading dock. In fact, I never actually saw the mother, but I saw a paramedic go in (yes, I went back; I’m a rubbernecker; I admit it). That kid’s gonna have quite a story to tell when s/he’s older!
