OUT OF CONTROL RANT WARNING!!!!!Hey I've got the OPPOSITE food market story. I go to local Kroger and
Went to my local food market. Just a few items, and I did some quick
math in my head. Items rang up as $20.32 and since I know math,
already had a $20. in my hand. Put it on the counter, saying "just a
sec." and reached into my pocket. The genius behind the register
assumed I'd be giving her a one dollar bill and rang $21.00 into her
register. Now the onboard calculator was of no use because I didn't
give her a single. I reached in my pocket and found two quarters and
two pennies. Let's review: bill was 20.32, and I handed over 20.52.
The cashier looked at me and, sincerely, asked (in this rhythm),
"So... you get back... fifteen cents?" I about died on the spot.
get a few things. Not a cart full but not just one or two either. Get
to check out lane it's all jammed up. I get to this cute Asian girl.
"Computer is down", she said, "but I check you out, OK?" OK. She
starts going through my stuff at scanner speed ADDING IT UP IN HER
HEAD!!!! Got the right answer too, because I had already added it up
before I headed for check out! I'm standing there with my mouth open.
"What's the matter?" she asked. "You added that up in your HEAD!" I
opined. "So?" she said, looking at me as if to say, "can't everyone?"
and what in hell was I ever amazed at? I walked out of the store
shaking my head. No doubt in MY mind which race is due to take over
(Who notes for a real thrill watch the burger flippers at McDonalds
trying to make change when the computer is down!)
