When Sweet Tea Can Turn Sour

, , , , | Right | July 5, 2021

My husband is a stickler for making sure that items that are sealed at a grocery store are sealed when being purchased. I am out shopping one day without him present and pick up four gallons of a popular brand of sweet tea. As I am loading the groceries onto the belt to be scanned, I noticed that one of the twist-off lids is loose.

I reach for it and unscrew the lid the rest of the way and examine the seal. Everything looks to be fine, but in my state of having just gotten off a ten-hour day at work, I decide to test the seal. I turn the gallon of tea upside down and squeeze it over the conveyor belt. Luckily, the seal is solid and nothing happens. I put the lid back on tight and proceed to approach the debit card reader.

The cashier is looking at me in horror, mid-scan, and it clicks what I just did.

Me: “I am so sorry! I don’t even know what I was thinking there.”

Cashier: *Silent for a moment* “It’s okay.” 

Me: “I swear I am not that customer! It was just a really long day today! I am so sorry.”

Cashier: “I was just wondering what you would have done if it spilled.”

I apologized again before I left. I am so thankful that nothing happened!
