Me: “Hi, did you find what you where looking for today?”

Customer: “No! Stop it! Start over and wait until I have it all on the belt!”

Customer: “Here!” *slaps her card on the counter* “You young people move to fast! You should slow down! No one likes you being fast!.”

Three other customers behind her: “We LOVE a fast checker!”
