The Tide Pod Has Turned, Part 2

, , , , , | Right | September 17, 2020

I’m standing behind this gem in line.

Cashier: “Did you find everything all right today, sir?”

Customer: *High-pitched mimicking* “’Did you find everything all right?’”

The customer scoffs.

Customer: “NO! You a**holes always do this! You falsely advertise an item you never have in store!”

Cashier: “I’m sorry to hear that, sir; what didn’t you find?”

Customer: “[Brand] laundry detergent.”

There’s a huge display of it right by the register.

Cashier: “Oh, actually, sir, I can help. We have a display—”

Customer: “No, you don’t. I searched this whole d*** store!”

Cashier: “Sir, if you’d just look—”

Customer: “NO! Shut up, you stupid b****, and do your d*** job! Stop falsely advertising s*** you don’t have!”

The customer turns to me.

Customer: “Can you believe this bulls***?”

Me: “I can’t believe a full-grown man is having a temper tantrum over laundry detergent that’s literally three feet away from him, which he’d have known if he hadn’t been such an a**hole when the cashier was trying to help him. Pay for your stuff and go; some of us have better things to do than verbally abuse the cashier.”

The customer turns bright red, pays, and storms out.

Me: “How many times has that happened since the sale started?”

Cashier: *Exhausted* “So many times.”
