I think you might have over-reacted a bit there, as that's a pretty common saying. I've had customers say it to me before when I handed them crisp bills.

Never had it said to me before because I have never really gotten crisp bills before. I always seem to get the bills that are falling apart. I guess I did over-react was not feeling good that day.

That wouldn't have offended me at all. Heck, I might have said that to the cashier as I handed her the money (I don't think anyone really counterfeits one dollar bills, anyway).

My rude comment experience came when I bought some frozen pizza, soda pop, and candy. The cashier went on and on how nothing was healthy that I had. I just said, yeah, but I was kind of offended. I figured we could eat what we wanted for "movie night" without the judgment.

I would have looked her squarely in the eye and said something like,

"The ones and fives always seem to stick to each other, that never seems to happen with the 20's and 50's. It must be the different ink I use."

I would have just said a nice prayer that some day that cashier would know that spending that little amount on your steaks isn't some giant splurge. In her mind, that is a big splurge obviously. She probably has to work 3-4 hours on her feet just to be able to afford that. As far as the organic milk ones, that would be working one hour on their feet just to be able to buy that.
The story about the counterfeit money joke? Really? You tried to get someone in trouble at their job for making a dumb joke?
I guess that I try everyday to see how blessed my life is. I can't imagine going back to a place in my life where it would be a hardship to buy decent food for my family. I am beyond blessed and I am so utterly grateful.

I am blissfully oblivious about what they may think about what I buy, because I've worked retail and food service, and you can't imagine the weird stuff that people buy, every day. I know that unless I'm buying live chickens, rubber sheets, and two hatchets ands one poison I am pretty normal.

I don't even care. Walgreens had a decent paper goods sale a few weeks ago. I rolled up with a cart with a jumbo box of pads, two boxes of pantyliners, a big box of tampons, flushable wipes for me, some Thermacare patches, my daughters night time pull-ups, some flushable wipes for her, some Advil for both of us, a Digiornio pizza and a big thing of chocolate marked down from Christmas. I am sure that the cashier was afraid to say anything!

I just figure that the cashier is trying to be friendly and make small talk, it's boring scanning all that stuff all day long and not talking to people, so you make some small talk, commiserate with the customer about the prices and the weather, try to make the baby laugh, etc. (I used to be a cashier back in ancient times) Any dumb comments that the cashier makes and SO irrelevant to me that they don't even register. Do people really care that the cashier comments about what they are buying?? SO not even on my radar.

PMS squared!


What bothers me is when the person on line behind me examines everything in my cart and makes comments. Advil was on sale one time plus we had coupons, so we stocked up on a few boxes. The guy behind us was like "you must get a lot of headaches". I would have let it go, but he was examining everything in the cart and I found it annoying.

My friend bought about 8 bottles of Summer's Eve recently (her dog was skunked.) She didn't buy anything else and paid full price. She said she was dying for someone to say something but no one did. I imagine the cashier was too freaked out -- really, if you don't know about using it on a skunked dog, what must be going through your head?

After suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage, a few months later we decided to try again. After a few weeks,, I was experiencing early pregnancy symptoms. Not trying to get my hopes up, I went to Walmart to get some pregnancy tests. The cashier scanned them and looked up and said, "oh my goodness, pregnant, huh? I'm sorry. Are you happy about this?".

I didn't say a word, paid and left.

I can't believe your Father would report someone for making a joke. Obviously it is illegal to make your own money. Apparently your family does not have a sense of humor at all.
