Don’t Be An Offender If You Can’t Handle Being Offended

(I work as a cashier at a hardware store, and where I work, we sell the big jugs of water that you would put in a water dispenser. People can bring in their empty bottles and get new ones in order to not have to pay a bottle deposit. One night, a lady brings in four empty water jugs and proceeds to start carrying out the new bottles before paying for them.)

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you have to pay for those before you can load them in your car.”

Customer: *looks quite appalled* “Well, are you going to remember that those are mine?”

(I look around; she is the only customer in the store.)

Me: “Yes, ma’am, I can remember that.”

(The customer goes to pick out a few more items and returns to the cash moments later.)

Me: “How are you doing today?”

Customer: “Honestly, I am quite offended.”

Me: “Oh…” *finishes ringing through her transaction* “Have a great evening.”

Customer: *scoffs*

(She literally got mad because I asked her not to shoplift?)
