Babysitting Him Earns You A Halo

| Cincinnati, OH, USA | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids

(I am ringing up a regular, who has brought her younger brother with her. This particular customer has spent a very large amount of money on both games and systems, and has a very large reserve list. Everything she buys is paid for with money that she earned herself.)

Me: “Would you like to reserve anything coming up?”

Regular: “Hmm… anything you could recommend?”

Me:Call of Duty, Hitman, maybe Halo 4?”

Regular’s Brother: “Eww, don’t get Halo!”

Regular: “I’ll go ahead and reserve Halo.”

Regular’s Brother:Halo is dumb!”

Me: “You want to put $5 down on Halo 4?”

Regular: “Yes, please!”

Regular’s Brother: “Why the h*** are you getting Halo?”

Me: “Will that be all?”

Regular’s Brother: “Don’t get Halo!”

Regular: *ignoring her brother* “Yup, that’s it!”

Me: “Your total is [total].”

Regular’s Brother: “I told you don’t get Halo! God, you are so freaking dumb! You’re just getting Halo 4 to play with your stupid boyfriend!”

(The regular hands me the money and then looks to her brother.)

Regular: “It’s my money! And don’t you even sass me! I’ll lock the Xbox in my room again!” *to me* “I’m sorry about the kid. I don’t know what his deal is!”

Me: “It’s no problem. You have a great day!”

Regular: “You have a good day, too!” *to her brother* “I’ll make sure dad knows that you were being a jerk today! You will be so grounded!”

(She grabs her brother by the arm and drags him out of the store, telling him off for his behavior all the way.)
