Sorry, Lady, But The Future Is App-ening

, , , | Right | March 26, 2021

I’m at a bulk store that offers an option to scan and pay for items with their app, allowing you to skip the checkout line and just go straight to the exit. There’s an attendant at the doors to scan your receipt and make sure everything matches up, so it’s relatively difficult to steal. Despite this, another customer comes up to me after I walk past the checkout.

Customer: “So you’re just gonna steal a whole buggy of groceries?”

Me: “What?”

Customer: “You’re stealing! I saw you go past the checkout line!”

Me: “No, I used the app.”

Customer:Thief! You’re a thief!”

I pushed past her because she was scaring my children and making them question if we’d stolen anything. I went to the attendant, who scanned my receipt and my cart and let me through. Of course, I still had to explain everything to my children.

To the lady who scared my kids and harassed me because she can’t keep up with technology: mind your own business.
