He Already Has Enough Issues

| AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Spouses & Partners

(One of my co-workers is checking out a couple.)

Cashier: “Alright, so your total is [total].”

(The wife starts paying with debit. Her husband is scanning our magazines at the side of the till.)

Husband: *to the cashier* “Excuse me, miss? Can I get a magazine?”

Cashier: “Oh, sure, I don’t see why not. We can do it as a separate transaction if you’d like?”

Husband: “Oh? I have to buy them?”

Cashier: *laughs* “Yes, sir. You would have to buy it.”

Husband: “Oh… well then, never mind.” *turns to his wife* “This b**** won’t give me a magazine!”

Wife: “Shut up; you’re being an a**!”

(The two customers leave and the cashier turns to me.)

Cashier: “I really hope he was drunk. If not, then what just happened?”
