Checking Out Ain’t A Piece Of Cake

, , , , , , | Working | December 8, 2021

It’s been a long day, and I have decided to visit my local supermarket one evening after work to grab a few essentials, and as I have had a stressful day, I decide to also purchase a small generic birthday cake.

This exchange occurs at the till whilst I am being served.

Cashier: “Ooh, is someone’s birthday coming up?”

Me: “Nah, just had a long day and felt like something nice for dessert. It’s a strange choice but I do like birthday cake.”

Cashier: “Bit out of order buying that if you don’t need it?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Cashier: “Well, I don’t think you should be taking food out of kids’ mouths is all.”

I was baffled. I ignored her for the rest of the transaction as she wittered on about starving kids. The shelves had plenty of birthday cakes. I hadn’t taken the last one either way!
