Three scantily clad young girls enter a store. No, this isn’t your grandfather about to tell an inappropriate joke. And no, you’re not watching a Carl’s, Jr.® commercial. We're talking about John Updike's short story "A&P." In this story, the protagonist quits his job. Was it in hot pursuit of the ladies? Was he embarrassed of his cashier job?
