Out Of Lane And Out Of Line

, , , | Right | June 2, 2017

(I work at a retail store in a calm, family-oriented part of town, where most people know each other and are genuinely nice. A buddy of mine comes in and stands last in line for my coworker’s register and I open a new one to relieve her. Said buddy notices first and comes to me and I start ringing up his items. The woman who was before him in coworker’s register suddenly sees me ringing him up and runs over:)

Customer: “I WAS FIRST!”

Buddy: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “ARE YOU DEAF? I WAS CLEARLY BEFORE YOU!”

Buddy: “Sorry, but maybe you would’ve noticed if you weren’t so consumed by your phone. Besides, I have less stuff than you, so please calm down.”

(At this point I’m just standing there quite dumbfounded really.)

Customer: “WELL, I’VE NEVER HEARD SUCH DISRESPECT!”

(She then suddenly grabs her items from her cart and literally THROWS them upfront over my register, over his groceries, down behind me, and on me. Then she fixes her coat and storms out clicking her heels like she owns the place.)

Buddy: “Yeah, besides your green cucumber outfit, this place ain’t so bad!”

(I finished his purchase and apologised for not doing anything but he just hushed me and bought me a chocolate I couldn’t say no to. Never saw that customer again.)
