Subject: Kurt the grocery boy,
Brenda the checkout girl
In the supermarket, Kurt the stock boy, was busily
When a new voice came over the loud speaker asking
for a Carry out at Register 4.
Kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get
some fresh air, so he decided to answer the call.
As he approached the Check-out stand a smile
caught his eye - the new check-out girl was beautiful.
She was an older woman (maybe 26, he was 22)
and he fell in love.
Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited
by the punch clock to find out her name.
She came into the break room, smiled softly at
him, took her card and punched out, then left.
He looked at her card, her name was Brenda .
He walked out only to see her start walking up
Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket,
and offered her a ride home.
He looked harmless enough, and she accepted.
When he dropped her off, he asked if
maybe he could see her again, outside of work.
She said no, it wasn't possible.
He pressed her so she explained she had two children
and she couldn't afford a baby-sitter.
He wanted that date, so he offered to pay for
the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she accepted his offer and
a date was set for the following Saturday.
That night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that
she couldn't go. The baby-sitter had canceled.
To which Kurt said, "Well, let's take the kids with us."
She told him that taking the kids wasn't an option,
but again, he refused to take no for an answer.
Finally, Brenda brought him inside to meet her
children. She had an older daughter who was cute as a bug.
Then Brenda brought out her son, in a wheelchair.
He was a paraplegic with Downs Syndrome.
Kurt asked Brenda, "I still don't understand -
why can't the kids come with us?" Brenda was amazed.
Most men would run away from a woman with two
kids, especially if one had disabilities - just like her
first husband and father of her children had
done. Kurt had a different mindset.
That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids,
went to dinner and the movies. When her son needed
anything, Kurt took care of him. When he
needed to use the restroom, Kurt picked him up out of his wheelchair,
took him to the rest room and brought him back.
The kids loved Kurt. At the end of the evening, Brenda knew
this was the man she wanted to marry and spend
the rest of her life with.
A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted
both of her children.
Since then they have added two more kids.
So what happened to Kurt the stock boy and Brenda
the check-out girl?
Well, they now live in Arizona and this Sunday,
Kurt is quarterbacking the Arizona Cardinals
in the Super Bowl.
Note: Parts of this story are true.
You can find the
real story at Snopes
Yes, the (my opinion) best quaterback in the NFL
used to work in a supermarket and now he's
on the biggest stage in the world - but the bookies
say he can't win this BIG game this Sunday.
I think they're wrong.
I've always been a BIG Kurt Warner fan.
With the St Louis Rams, Warner ran "The Greatest
Show on Turf"
In 2000, John Madden said the St Louis Rams had
the "most explosive offense I've ever seen."
You figure John Madden has seen a lot of football,
so that means something.
But like Bill Clinton, they had to change the
rules to stop Kurt Warner.
Defenses knew he couldn't be stopped - if he was
healthy - so they proceeded to knock him down
30 times a game and that brought a slew of
injuries and Kurt eventually fell out of favor.
The NFL allowed that bullshit and I say shame
on them for doing it.
He signed with Arizona in 2005 and now, as an
old man of 37,
he's going to the Super Bowl which proves
that St Louis and New York were crazy to let
him get away - when he was younger and better.
The Cardinals are a 6.5 point underdog, but if I was in Vegas Sunday,
I'd bet on Kurt Warner's Cardinals.
