One More Thing That She Needs

| ME, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Bizarre

(I’m on an express checkout when a woman unloads her groceries onto my belt. We exchange friendly greetings.)

Me: “Did you find everything you needed okay?”

Customer: “Does it look like I did?”

Me: “…I guess?”

Customer: “Do they ask you to ask that?”

Me: “Yes, but I legitimately ask that question to make sure.”

Customer: “I hate it when people ask you that at the register. It’s all right there, and if I didn’t, I’d go back and get it!”

Me: “Well, that makes sense.”

Customer: “See, I’m a one woman army to get cashiers to stop asking that question!”
