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

    (I’ve already processed and bagged about six Items.)

    Customer: “Stop bagging! I don’t want no double scans!”

    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!”
