I’m the difficult customer in this story. So it’s about an hour before closing at this Target express off campus and I’m in line for the register. There are three self service stations in addition to the cashier so I go to the empty one. It’s only after I scan all my items and try to pay when I notice the huge notices around the machine saying “NO CASH. CARD ONLY” and the same sign literally taped on the till. I only have cash on me so I click to cancel my purchase, which an employee has to approve of.
Me (as employee walks over): “Oh my god, I’m so sorry. I didn’t read anything.”
Employee: “Don’t worry about it. You weren’t the first and I assure you, you aren’t going to be the last.”
As if on cue, the guy at the station right next to us’ machine starts beeping for an employee and he goes: “Hey, where do I put in my money?”
