    Tried To Kill The Sale

    | CA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Employees, Pets & Animals

    (A couple weeks before this incident, I had to bathe my cat because he got into something sticky and foul smelling. He scratched up my arms and part of my stomach trying to escape the sink and it left a lot of scars.)

    Me: “Just this soda and these candies, please.”

    (I put the items on the counter in the process showing my arms.)

    Cashier: “Did you try to kill yourself?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Cashier: “That’s disgusting. Why are flaunting your scars like you want sympathy?”

    Me: “…I got them from my cat.”

    Cashier: “Yeah. Try harder next time. Do everyone a favor.”

    Me: “You know, never mind the items. I’m not buying anything.”

    (As I left the store about six other customers left looking completely disgusted. None of them had purchased anything either.)

    Having A Bad Case Of The Mondays

    | AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (It’s Monday morning. I’m grabbing a coffee at the corner store. The transaction proceeds as normal. Until the end.)

    Clerk: “Have a good weekend!”

    (As it is Monday, I shrug it off and start heading away. When I reach the door, the clerk finally clues in.)

    Clerk: “Wait a minute… IT’S NOT THE WEEKEND ANYMORE!”

    Sharing Is Scaring

    | San Jose, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees

    (My best friend moved recently and lacks some necessities like toilet paper so while we are getting snacks I grab a pack. The cashier that evening is very grumpy.)

    Cashier: “You guys gonna share?”

    Friend: “Yeah, wanna join?”

    I’ll Drink To That

    | MO, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I’ve just finished eating lunch and take my ticket to the woman at the counter, still holding my fountain drink which I have not finished.)

    Cashier: “One burger combo. Is that it?”

    Me: “Yep.”

    (I notice that she rings me up for my drink as well as my combo meal.)

    Me: “Oh, I didn’t get a refill or anything, so its part of the combo.”

    Cashier: “Drinks aren’t included in the combo.”

    Me: “Yes, they are. A combo is a burger, fries or tater tots, and a 24 oz drink.”

    (I point to the sign that is literally right behind her that lists what’s in the combo meal.)

    Me: “See?”

    (She stares at me for a moment, looking annoyed.)

    Cashier: “Fine.”

    (Without even looking at the sign she voids the order and just rings me up for my combo.)

    Great Scott!

    | Harrisburg, PA, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers

    (I have come in on my day off to drop off my boyfriend’s dinner. He works at the same store.)

    Me: “Hey, could you call Scott up?”

    Cashier: “What?”

    Me: “Can you call Scott?”

    Cashier: “What?”

    Me: “Call Scott.”

    Cashier: “What?”

    Me: “Call Scott.”

    Cashier: “What?”

    Me: “Call the manager!”

    Cashier: “Oh!” *picks up paging system* “Scott to the front please.”

    Me: *sigh*
