This goes back a lot of years. I was working as part time cashier for some extra Christmas money and the store discount. UPC scanners were relatively new. I’m scanning a young woman who is with her baby and her mother. As she loads the counter, her mother says “well look at that”, referring to the scanner on my hand. I smile. Then she says (quite nastily) ” how lazy can you be”
Me: ma’am this is an inventory control device. It’s the only way to ring items

She continues to glare, tsk tsk, and shake her head.

Between customers like her, people screaming at me about their card being declined (um, you’ve reached your credit limit, your payment is late, it’s a stolen card) and thiefs trying to use stolen cards, I quit about 3 weeks in.
