There’s a rush at check out, so I’m called to my register. I arrive to find a customer with a cart load of products laid out on my counter while she sorts through them.

Me: Excuse me. Sorry, I’m going to need this register.

Customer: You can’t use another one?

Me: Unfortunately no. We’re assigned to a register.

The customer reluctantly acquiesces and starts loading everything back into her cart.

Customer: *gets halfway and stops*
Actually, can you just ring me up?

Me: *looking over at the long line of people who’ve been restlessly waiting*
You’ll have to ask them.

Customer: *looks at the line*
Nevermind.
