As a cashier, have you ever been worried, amused, or intrigued by the combination of items your customer was buying?

  1. Once, while running a register at Target, I rang up a bottle of sleeping pills that a customer was buying, and commented, “That’s something I don’t need!”

    When the customer asked why, I replied that since my normal job was pushing carts in from the outside cart catchers, and I usually brought in between 4–7 (the strap we use doesn’t reach far enough to allow more than 7 carts at once) at a time, for between 3–5 hours a day (sometimes, on a four-hour shift, I’ll spend three hours with carts, and one hour cashiering), at the end of the day, I need a nap! (Preferably at least 7 hours long!)

    Sometimes, when guests buy food, and it’s a food I’m particularly fond of, I’ll ring it up and say, “Okay, now I’m hungry!” And, just the other day, I rang up a pregnancy test for a guest, and thought, “Okay…the reason she’s buying that is ‘need-to-know,’ and, I don’t!”

    So, maybe not so much worried, but I can definitely find humor or interest in items a guest is buying.
