The Couponator 36: The Counter-Coupon Cashier

, , , , , , | Working | CREDIT: MeowlySquid | August 3, 2022

I used to coupon. A lot. For this particular transaction, it is only digital coupons, no paper ones. I collect all my items, get to the checkout, and enter my phone number. The cashier hits total, and about $12 worth of stuff is roughly $.50.

I pay with my card, and as the cashier hands me my receipt, she notices how cheap it is. For background, this woman hates me, hates couponers, and is just an all-around pain. Every. Time. Cue this wonderful exchange.

Cashier: “Well, that’s obviously wrong; it’s too cheap. I’m going to have to return all of your stuff.”

Me: “You aren’t. I have already paid. It was digital coupons, and I have done nothing wrong.”

Cashier: “You have to give me the receipt, then, and I’m going to write down every UPC and every coupon. This is like stealing.”

I’m a bit annoyed, and I just don’t want her to follow me outside, so I comply. I give her the receipt and stand there for about ten minutes while the cashier writes, muttering nasty stuff half under her breath.

A manager finally comes up.

Manager: “[Cashier], what are you doing?”

The cashier explains the situation.

Manager: “[Cashier], you do stuff like this to her every time she comes in. They are digital coupons. That’s what they do. She is fine. Give her the receipt and leave her alone.”

The cashier argued for a second before inevitably giving me my receipt, and I promptly left. I was pretty mad about the cashier’s behavior, but hey, at least the manager was cool.
