There are three Smart Aids in Englewood, the small, somnolent beach town where I live. There are twenty-seven in Sarasota County, and one hundred and fifteen in all of Florida, spreading across the state like some untreatable rash. The reason I couldn't be fired was that my uncles owned every single one of them.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenEdit

I'd been trying to get fired from Smart Aid all summer, and it had proved next to impossible. I came in late, repeatedly and with the flimsiest of excuses; made shockingly incorrect change; even misshelved things on purpose, stocking lotions among laxatives and birth control with baby shampoo. Rarely had I worked so hard at anything, and yet no matter how incompetent I pretended to be, Shelley stubbornly kept me on the payroll.

Smart Aid is where Jacob Portman works; he continuously tries to get himself fired by making giant sculptures with store items (i.e. adult diapers) and leaving before his shift is done. However, he is a nephew to the owners so he is never actually fired, no matter how much he (or his manager, Shelley) wants it to happen.

There are 115 total Smart Aids in the entire state of Florida, 27 in Sarasota County, and 3 in Eaglewood where Jacob lives, all of which are owned by his uncles, Uncle Bobby and Uncle Les. It is on the verge of further expansion.
