He enjoys sharing history facts, baseball statistics and arithmetic with customers — he’s famous for his numbers knowledge. After dropping out of school and struggling with mental illness, David began his career in customer service at an independent cheese store in Kensington Market in Toronto. He’s spent more than 30 years as a cashier and entertainer at health food stores.
