That’s Why They Call It A Day Job

(I work part-time as a cashier at a major grocery store. I am also completing my second university degree. A rather posh-looking, middle-aged woman approaches my register and unloads her basket.)

Customer: “Is this what you do all day?”

Me: “Sorry?”

Customer: *gesturing to my register* “Is this what you do all day? You stand here scanning things. Is this what you plan to spend your whole life doing?”

Me: “No, I do… other things.”

Customer: “Well, I should say so. Hmph!”
