October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Waxing Lyrical About Christmas Kindness

| OH, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(Several customers are purchasing wax cubes. You’re supposed to melt them in a wax burner, but I can’t help but sniff them while I’m ringing them out. I didn’t want to stop smelling one in particular. However, after seeing one of the customers looking at me funny, I quickly close it and put it with the others in the bag.)

Customer #1: “If you like those so much, you should buy some!”

Me: “Oh, I don’t have a wax burner.”

Customer #2: “You should get one! They smell really good when they’re melted, too!”

Me: “I’m a college student. I don’t have money!”

(The customers leave, only to later come back back through my line. They’re purchasing another lip balm and wax burner along with candy cane-scented wax. They start to walk away with just their lip balms and don’t grab their other items.)

Me: “Hey, wait, you forgot your bag!”

Customer #1: “That’s for you. Merry Christmas. You deserve it for trying to do something with your life!”

(I was nearly in tears for the rest of the evening! Thank you, kind customer!)
