At the store buying 2 items, little boy in tow.

Lady in front only has one item, I think to myself Great!! Ill be out of here quick.

Cashier to lady, can I have your phone number.

Lady, bla bla bla, bla, bla, bla, bla.

Cashier to lady, you have this many points. Do you want to apply it?

Lady, let me think

Lady, how much will I save.

Cashier, let me look....tic,tic,tic,


Cashier, .04 cents

Lady. Let me think....tic tic tic..


Lady, just roll it over...


Cashier, do you want to donate 1 dollar to bla bla bla

Lady, humm...not this time


Cashier, do you want your receipt printed or emailed..


Lady...let me think


Lady... E mail


Cashier. Is this your correct email....bla, bla, bla, bla,
Lady. No ....it's bla. Bla, bla..

Cashier. Let me change it...only take a few seconds..

Cashier. Ok. It's changed.

Lady, go ahead and print it.

Cashier, ok

5 sheets of receipts,coupons, whatever, print out for her one item.



Finally....I'm up

Cashier, looks at me with a 10 dollar bill in my hand...starts to ask for my phone number.....must of seen to look of disgust on my face.

As I kindly state

I just want to pay.

And she went thru all of that for a pack of double-mint gum?

I can sympathize with you Gus.

And to think, computers are supposed to be time savers.

In my case, she would have gone through all that and THEN started searching her purse for a checkbook!

It's amazing the looks you get using cash... until the system is down and they can't buy their toilet paper.

I have had that scenario a million times. Especially at SEARS. Second gripe: Why are men ready to pay and women have to search a gigantic bag for 5 bucks and change or whatever.
Sorry Peg. smile

I've had it before that while in line, I add the price of my items, figure out the tax and add that, get the correct change and be ready. When she finally tells me the amount, the exact change is laying on the counter.

.... I will NOT give anyone my zip/phone or anything else unless I'm the one requesting a favor. I look at them like they're a dodo bird and say "you do take cash".

...and if I feel good I'll tell them "sorry, but the privacy act works BOTH ways. It works for me as well as for your company.

At my regular coffee shop a small costs 89 cents. Woman brings out a VISA card. Doesn't work so she goes through her cards for another. Same thing. Finally finds a debit card and hurrah, it works. All this time for an 89 cent cup of coffee. To add insult the whole time she was on her cell phone!
The world has gone mad!
