Too Fast To Shop

, , , | Right | September 8, 2019

(A customer pays for her items and heads for the door. I realize immediately that she’s left her bagged items at the register.)

Me: “Ma’am, you forgot your items!”

(The store isn’t loud, and the registers are close to the doors, but she doesn’t seem to hear me. She walks at a fast clip through the doors.)

Me: *to people in line* “Excuse me a moment.”

(I grab the plastic shopping bag and jog after the woman. She keeps up her fast clip across the sidewalk and into the parking lot. Other employees are sitting in front of the store on their cigarette breaks.)

Me: “Ma’am! Wait! You’re walking off without your purchase! Excuse me! Lady with the red shirt!”

Coworker: “Ma’am! Ma’am!”

Coworker #2: “Ma’am! You forgot your stuff!”

(She didn’t slow down or look back. She entered a van which was facing the store. I waved, trying to get her attention, but she never once looked up as she focused on turning on the engine and putting the car in reverse. She looked behind her as she backed up, still giving no sign she’d seen or heard us. She was out of the parking lot in seconds, and I was left holding the shopping bag. As far as I know, she never came back for her purchase. I’ve rarely seen anyone move so fast!)
