"A & P" by John Updike.

Introduction: Over the years, I have read hundreds of short stories. In this blog, I am going to summarize as many of them as I can. The summaries do not do the stories justice. If you like the summary of the story, read it. RayS.

“A & P.” John Updike.

10-second review: Three girls come into the A & P wearing bathing suits. Sammy, the checker at the cash register, sees nothing wrong with their attire. His boss, however, does and tells the girls to come in with their shoulders covered next time. Sammy, angry at his boss’s embarrassing the girls, quits. But the girls are not around to see his grand gesture.
