The last day of orientation at New Plymouth University, Work Placement called students up in pairs. Rhonda Morillo took the chair next to a big-boned blond girl--Deirdre, pretty sure--as their peer advisor announced their "exciting cultural opportunity": stocking shelves at Kiriki Grocery.

Very cool, quirky story. Why wouldn't aliens have grocery stores very similar to our own? Makes sense, doesn't it? And if the aliens have money and grocery stores, then perhaps armed robbery is inevitable. Perhaps if humanity encountered alien life forms, we'd find them all a bit too familiar...

My only complaint is that I wasn't exactly sure what exactly Craterfox Block was. Perhaps I missed it, but I wasn't sure if it was on Earth or another planet. It seemed to be underground, but I'm not sure why that was either. Anyway, the author followed the rule of "show, don't tell", and that background information wasn't really important to the story anyway.
