Do Unto Others

Mary shifted her bulky body awkwardly in the small area between the counter and the till opening her chaffed thighs to relieve the constant burning. She sighed and turned the chair around to face the customer unpacking her shopping onto the moving belt. As discreetly as she could she slipped her thumb in the waistband of her skirt and prized it away from the sweaty fold of fat overlapping her waist. She leaned forward to pick up a frozen chicken that was coming towards her on the belt steadying… Continue
