This Part Is Always Self “Check” Out

, , , , , , | Right | June 29, 2019

(I’m cashiering one slow evening. A regular customer comes through my line. I go through my usual spiel and start to scan his groceries.)

Customer: “D***, I forgot my credit card at home. Do you guys take checks?”

Me: “Yes, we do.”

Customer: “Great. The checkbook is in the car; I’ll be right back.”

(His order is large enough that I’m just finishing up when he returns.)

Me: “All right, the total is [total].”

Customer: “Okay.”

(The guy opens his checkbook to the next blank check, rips it out, and hands it to me without filling anything out. I stare at him, then I stare at the check, and then back at him, not sure what to say.)

Customer: “Oh, do I have to fill that out?”

(I have never seen a customer so trusting with their money that they would hand a complete stranger a blank check.)
