I’m Done Talking

(I’ve just joined a checkout line and inadvertently placed myself in the center of this altercation.)

Cashier: “Ma’am, I’ve already told you it is store policy to ID everyone attempting to purchase tobacco products. You have no identification and simply stating, ‘This is my card,’ will not allow me to complete this purchase.”

Angry Woman: “Listen here, kid, I’ve shopped here longer than you’ve been alive! How do you treat your elders like this and sleep at night?”

Cashier: “Ma’am I—“

Angry Woman: “DO NOT SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT!”

Cashier: “Okay.”

(The cashier then proceeded to turn off the lane-open light and calmly walk away, leaving the woman to scream incoherently until she was removed by security!)
