Leaving Your Wallet Somewhere Is One Thing…

, , , , | Right | November 21, 2019

(I am running the self-check area on a very busy Friday afternoon. A lady, accompanied by two small children — a one- or two-year-old and a three- or four-year-old — approaches one of the registers and checks her groceries through without incident, but she calls me over.)

Customer: “I’m so sorry, but I think I’ve left my wallet in my car.”

Me: “Oh, okay…”

Customer: “Can I just leave these groceries here and run out to the car for my wallet?”

Me: “Sure, no problem!”

Customer: “Do you think I could leave my kids here, too, while I run out to the car?”

Me: *with an expression of utter shock* “No, I don’t think that would be a good idea.”

Customer: *disappointed* “Oh…”

(She wanted to leave her children with a complete stranger, in a busy store. Really?!)
