She Ain’t No Limbo Bimbo!

, , , | Right | March 14, 2020

(I am opening up the self-service section of a supermarket. The barrier is still up while I am logging onto the checkouts and setting up. I hear a noise and turn around to see a woman, arms full of groceries, trying to scuttle like a crab under the barrier.)

Me: “Sorry, the self-serve isn’t ready to use just yet.”

Customer: “Oh, really?”

(She seems genuinely surprised, still squatting, looking up at me with her hair caught in the barrier.)

Me: “Um, yes… but express is open.”

Customer: “Oh, great, thanks!”

(She untangled herself and headed to express, leaving me to wonder if she really thought we’d make her limbo for her shopping.)
