(Every cashier has to ask for the customer’s phone number before ringing them up. Giving the number is voluntary and is only used to look up a purchase if the customer lost their receipt and wants to return something).

Me: Can I get a phone number?

(The customer slams down his one item).

Customer: No!

(He storms off and proceeds to yell about how he can’t even buy something without giving his phone number).
