Why Judgment Day’s Gonna Be A Cakewalk

(I’ve just finished ringing up some items for a customer and her daughter.)

Me: “It looks like your customer card is about to expire. Would you like to renew it now?”

Customer: “Yes, I would.”

Me: “Okay, just press the green button on the key pad.”

(The total rings up as $24.32.)

Customer: “Okay, I want to pay cash.”

Me: “Okay…”

(We stand there for a few seconds as the customer continues to stare at the total on the register.)

Customer: “Well, what do I do?”

Customer’s daughter: “Are you serious?”

Customer: “Yeah, there is no cash button. What do I do?”

Customer’s daughter: “Mom.”

Customer: “What?”

Customer’s daughter: “Hand the poor woman your cash.”

Customer: *hands me cash* “I’m so sorry…I’m used to the machine telling me what to do!”

Customer’s daughter, to me: “She’s not too bright, but she is real pretty. She’ll probably die first when the Terminators come.”

Customer: “Smart a**!”
