Too Expensive

One lady through my checkout had a total of about 5 things. Something scans at 77c. Instantly she is outraged and demands that the price was 76c. I stare blankly at her for a second thinking she must be joking. She didn’t take kindly to my look. It must have have clearly shown…..What the fuck is wrong with you.

Me : Oh…ahh…are you sure?
Woman : Of course i’m bloody sure, IT WAS 76c!
Me : Ok….i’ll get someone to check it.

Now who the fuck winges about 1c, she had 3 of the item, so granted…it was….an extra 3c, rounded up to 5c. I would have thrown her 10c and said “Keep the change” if I wasn’t scared she’d probably dob me into the manager.

So the grocery assistant comes back and…indeed she was right, so i change the amount, all the time not saying much and she looks at me and saids “WELL I HAVE 2 KIDS TO FEED, EVERY CENT COUNTS”

Yeah, luckily she checked the price or they woulda’ starved for a week.
