MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - It's getting hot in here!!  However, Joe Ramirez actually enjoys a break in the sun. 

Ramirez is the store manager at Metro PCS on Union Avenue. 

Yesterday, WMC Action News 5 snapped a picture of him dressed in the Green Android mascot suit. 

"I get a lot of customers honking and what not and I just wave to them with my Android suit. I try to have as much fun as I can out here," Ramirez said. 

As the temperatures rise, Ramirez is always concerned about getting too hot, which is why he doesn't make his employees do it. 

"I don't want to pass out either, so I do worry about my health. So I'll stay 10 to 15 minutes and come inside drink a lot of water, then cool off and then I'll do it again," Ramirez said. 

Even with the heat index feeling like 100 degrees, people still want a selfie with the mascot. 

"I actually had a lady yesterday, she was like 'can I take a selfie?' so it just makes everybody happy," Ramirez said. 

For Ramirez, it's all about taking breaks, staying hydrated, and well... getting business.
