Lack Of Register Does Not Register, Part 8

, , | Right | November 26, 2017

(One of our registers is a card-only register that we open only when the store is busy. Once the crowd lessens, we close it. I just opened the register a few minutes ago, but I am about to close it because there are no more people at the register. A customer walks up to the register.)

Me: “Sorry, sir, I’m about to close. You can go to one of the other two open registers.”

Customer: “But I heard you open.”

Me: “Yes, sir, five minutes ago. But now I’m closing because there are no more people. You can go to the other registers.”

Customer: “This is the card-only register.”

Me: “Yes, but you can pay with your card at the other registers, too.”

Customer: *seeing the three people per register before him* “Then I don’t want this anymore!”

(He drops his full shopping cart at the beginning of the conveyor belt and storms out.)

Me: *speechless*
