A Bitter Bad Behavior

, , , , , , | Related | January 22, 2014

(I work in a candy store. Our credit card machine has been out of service for a couple of days. We have a sign at the register, but I’ve been trying to let everyone know as they come into the store so that I don’t have to sort and restock large purchases when they turn out to not have enough money. I’ve just told a woman and her kids that the machine is broken and we’re taking cash/checks only.)

Woman: “Oh! Well, I do have some cash on me, so we should be okay.”

(She turns to her children.)

Woman: “I don’t have a lot of money, so we can all only get a little bit of candy, okay?”

Middle Daughter: *outraged* “Do you know how expensive I am in stores like this?!”
