Won’t Accept The Heavy Responsibility

| Right | December 4, 2015

(I work in a retail establishment where the government has enforced a carrier bag charge at a very low price, just to help you remember about your bags. It has been in place for a year already.)

Customer: “Just put all the stuff in the same bag there.”

Me: “Are you sure? It’s quite a lot of stuff; not sure the bag will hold.”

Customer: “It’ll be okay; I’m not paying any more.”

Me: “Are you sure you don’t want another bag? It seems about ready to burst.”

Customer: “Stop trying to sell me bags I don’t need!”

(After using some great Tetris skills I finished packing and I hand the bag over while holding the bottom of the bag.)

Me: “Now be careful while lifting it; it’s very heavy and about ready to burst.”

(The bag broke as soon as it was lifted. Customer went on a rant about how I should’ve warned him that the bag was heavy, and that I should’ve known better than to pack it that heavy, and stormed off leaving all his stuff behind him.)
