October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

To And Fro Is The Way To Go

| Houston, TX, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Top

(It’s the holiday season, and I’m shopping for DVDs as gifts for my family. I see a movie that I want to get for myself, but decide against it. A few minutes later, I change my mind, but the movie has disappeared. I take the rest of my purchases up to the counter, where I notice the customer in front of me is about to buy the movie I was looking for.)

Me: “Ah, so that’s where it went.”

Other customer: “Pardon me?”

Me: *chuckling* “I was thinking about getting that DVD, but when I went back to the shelf, it was gone. I couldn’t figure out what happened to it.”

Other customer: “Here you go!” *hands me the DVD*

Me: “Thanks, but I don’t really need it. You go ahead.” *I hand the DVD back to her*

Other customer: “If you want it, by all means, please take it.” *she hands me the DVD again*

Me: “Are you buying this as a gift?”

Other customer: “Well, yes, but…”

Me: “Then you should definitely take it. I’ll pick it up some other time.” *I hand the DVD back to her*

Other customer: “Are you sure? Because I can easily find something else.”

Me: “I’m positive, but thanks again.”

(At this point, we realize the cashier is staring at us with wide eyes.)

Other customer: “Miss? Is everything okay?”

Cashier: (emotionally) “You two are the only nice customers I’ve dealt with all day!”
