I Am A People Person, You’re Just Not Good People

, , , | Right | March 19, 2020

(Two rowdy men are waiting in line behind an older woman trying to purchase a lottery ticket. They’re being extremely obnoxious and making unsolicited comments to her. I explain that her lottery slip is unreadable due to a wet spot, and this sends them into paroxysms of juvenile mirth. They continue shouting at the woman as she walks away, and I ask them politely to leave her alone. They quiet down. I ring up [Guy #1]’s items and notice [Guy #2] walking out the door with a handful of popsicles.)

Me: “Excuse me!”

Guy #2: “Oh, he’s paying for these.”

Me: “That’s fine, but I still have to scan them.”

Guy #2: “You should have said something.”

Me: “I did. Just now. That’ll be [total], please.”

([Guy #2] leaves while [Guy #1] pays.)

Guy #1: “You should find a new job.”

Me: “Yeah?”

Guy #1: “Yeah. You’re no good with people.”
