Aloe And Goodbye

, , , | Right | August 18, 2020

I’m a bagger at a grocery store. While bagging, the cashier notices a tiny bit of mold on a customer’s blueberries, so I run to produce to grab another container. As I walk through produce, a customer grabs my attention.

Me: “Yes, can I help you?”

The customer mumbles and walks a little ways off. He is now at an endcap that has tropical fruits. I follow him. I’m off to the side of the endcap while he is standing directly in front of it. He mumbles at me some more and gestures towards the display.

Me: “Yes?”

Customer: *Angry* “This plant!”

He points at the aloe vera.

Me: “The aloe vera?”

Customer: “How much is it?”

I walk around to the front of the display — the side he is standing on — and look at the price tags.

Me: “It’s $6.99.”

Customer: “Each?”

Me: “Yes.”

I point at the price tag.

Me: “That plant is $6.99 each.”

Customer: “How do you cook it?”

Me: “How do you cook it?”

Customer: “Yes! I am Italian; I know nothing!”

Me: *Confused* “I don’t know.”

Customer: “Then what is this plant good for?”

Me: “You can extract the juice and treat sunburns?”

The customer left the store. I grabbed the blueberries and ran back to the register, where the cashier was wondering what was taking me so long.
