Some Customers Deserve To Be Carted Off, Part 2

, , , , | Right | October 15, 2020

I work night stock at a grocery store. One person is the cashier but does stock a couple aisles by themselves near their registers so they can see when they have a customer wanting to check out. I’m the cashier tonight.

I’m approached by a youngish couple with a full cart, the woman having a distinct silver-dyed hair color.

Customer: “Where are the hotdog buns?”

I point them in the right direction and go about my business. Later, I realize I haven’t seen that couple in a while and after asking my coworkers, I discover that they simply walked out of the store with their full cart.


I alert management and move on.

A few days later, I spot them in the store again, accompanied by another guy. Something in me snaps and I decide to confront them. I walk over and ask if they’re finding everything okay.

Me: “Hey, weren’t you in here the other night?”

Customer: “No, I don’t think so.”

Me: “Yeah, I recognize your hair. You asked me where the hotdog buns were and then we never saw you again.”

By this point, they’ve started looking at each other uncomfortably.

Customer: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Me: “I think you do.”

Customer: “No, I don’t.”

Me: “I think you do.”

Being a mother, I gave them the look that all mothers give when they know someone’s lying. I then simply walked away to continue stocking. 

One of my coworkers was nearby during this encounter, and after I walked away, continued to stand there with her arms crossed, staring at these people. They left quickly after that.

The best part, the woman had forgotten her billfold in the cart, so she had to come back! The silver-haired thief even had the audacity to call me a vulgar name on the way out.
