A Cereal Shouter

, , , , | Right | July 7, 2021

I recently started a new job at a grocery store. It’s been very busy as Labor Day is coming up. One customer decided that they didn’t want a box of cereal, which I was fine with, and I simply put it to the side. Several customers later, I get a woman who seems perfectly fine. I knock down the cereal by accident, pick it up, set it onto the bagging area out of the way, mention it to my bagger, and continued scanning. Cue the customer suddenly yelling.

The customer seems like she’s about to cry, waving her hands at the bagger:

Customer: “No! No!”

Bagger: “What’s wrong?”

Customer: “Not mine!” 

The bagger explains that it was a simple mistake, removes the box, and continues bagging.

The customer still yells about how it’s not hers, and both of us try to explain that I never even scanned it. The bagger takes the box to return it, and the woman continues freaking out. 

Customer: *Yelling* “What’s wrong with you?!”

Another customer yells at her:

Other Customer: “What the f*** is wrong with you?!

She calmed down after that, and the rest of the transaction went by smoothly. That one customer is my hero.
