(I’m waiting in line at the cash register. The old woman in front of me puts a large number of liquid creamer tubs on the counter.)

Cashier: “… Uh… I can’t sell you those?”

Old woman: “Why not?”

Cashier: “Well, they’re not labelled for sale, and I can’t just let you take them, they’re to put in your coffee. I could sell you a cup, except we don’t typically make coffee at 7PM.”

Old woman: “Well, what do I do?”

Cashier: “We have some dry creamer over there.”

Old woman: “Oh.”

(She leaves her armful at the counter and walks out of line to the shelves. The cashier pulls the creamer tubs towards her, apparently to put back after she finishes with me and the other people in line.)

Cashier: “Come on.”

(I step forward and put my items on the counter. As she’s scanning them…)

Old woman: (from the aisle) “Is this the only one you have?”

Cashier: “Yes.”

(The old woman leaves without making a purchase. I sincerely hope that’s the weirdest customer the cashier dealt with that night…)
