Making A Total Boop Of Yourself

, , , | Right | CREDIT: Anonymous By Request | October 28, 2020

I am working the register when a customer comes up with a refund and a new purchase. Where I work, they have to be done on separate transactions.

I am in the middle of entering her return receipt info manually because it won’t scan. She knows this was what I am doing, because I told her.

While typing away I see her hand, with the product in it, slowly reach through the hole in my protective barrier, towards my scanner. Surely she’s not going to… 


She has scanned her first item. She’s reaching for the next one. It’s messing up my manual entry.

I’m trying not to laugh.

Me: “Uh, I’m not… on the right screen for that. But thanks?”

The poor lady shrinks into herself, embarrassed. I guess she just wanted to be helpful?
