    The Gaze Of Amnesia

    | New Jersey, USA | At The Checkout

    (I work at a grocery store and have just rung up a middle aged man’s groceries. He has a very heavy Spanish accent.)

    Me: “Do you have a bonus savings card, sir?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’ll give you my phone number to look it up. 973…umm…hold on.”

    Me: “Would you like me to put the store card in for you?”

    Customer: “No! I forgot my phone number! I’ve had the same phone number for 27 years. Then, I take one look into your beautiful green eyes and I forget!”

    Me: “I’m very sorry, sir. I can put a store card number in for you. You
    will get all of the same discounts.”

    Customer: “No, thank you.”

    (He then repeats the phone number over and over again until he gets the right one. Every time he’s come back to the store, I have to avoid looking him in the eye so he doesn’t forget.)
