when are you due?
I work as a cashier at a local groccery store. I was in charge of the self check out one day and I had noticed the customer at one of the machines was looking at me with an odd expression. I asked if there was anything I could help her with and the words “How far along are you sweetie?” slipped out of her mouth. This was literally a moment I have been waiting for because I have always wanted that moment of awkardness that I could continue to laugh about the rest of my life. Without missing a beat I looked her in the eye and said “Oh honey, I’m just fat.” She gasped instantly and started frantically appologizing. my co-workers and I laughed about it for the longest time.

I was standing at the counter with my husband at a little five and dime store waiting to get checked out. The only employee in the store was stuck on a very tall ladder putting inventory away on a top shelf. He acknowledged us and told us it would just be a minute. We were the only customers until a woman and her young daughter came in. The woman brushed past us, grabbed whatever item she had purposed to buy, and, even though we were standing right up at the counter, managed to step in front of us (making us step backward) and put her item in front of ours. The cashier was down from his ladder by this point. He eyed the lady and looked at us helplessly. Looking rather confused he let her pay, glancing at us apologetically. The lady grabbed her things and her daughter, left the store, never giving us any hint that something unusual just happened. Beth the Other Admin
are you sure?
About seven years ago I went to Taco Bell with a couple of friends. My friends ordered and got their food with no problems. I stepped up and ordered a number one burrito supreme and soft taco supreme. I was expecting to hear the price and give the guy my money. The cashier looked at me a little strangely and asked, “Are you sure?” I didn’t know what to think. Was I sure? Did I look stupid? At any rate, after a few moments I told him that I was and he told me the price and took my money. I found my friend and asked him why that happened. He said, “You talk funny,” and never explained what he meant. Micah the Admin
