News: Too Late Now To Switch From Checkout Line With Talkative Cashier

It never fails. And I hate it when they comment on what I'm buying. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

Too Late Now To Switch From Checkout Line With Talkative Cashier

BLOOMINGTON, MN—Cursing silently to himself upon realizing that the cashier in his lane was engaging in conversation with every patron, local Trader Joe’s shopper Dan Wetzel confirmed Tuesday that it was now too late for him to switch to another line manned by a less outgoing employee.

“Oh, no,” said Wetzel, who reportedly looked around in momentary panic after overhearing the clerk cheerily ask a pair of customers about their recent weekend activities, only to find that several people had filed into line behind him and that the window to slide over to an adjacent lane had long since closed.

“Ugh, goddammit.”

At press time, Wetzel had forced a half-smile to his face and braced himself as the store employee began making chipper inquiries about the meal Wetzel was planning to make with the items he was offloading from his basket to the counter.

  1. Haha! Sounds so familiar. :D

    My son is involved in Kairos prison ministries, and I recently volunteered to make the large amount of Rice Krispy treats (150 dozen to be exact) for him that he needed to take with him for the retreat weekend. It takes a LOT of bags of marshmallows and boxes of cereal to make that many treats--two carts full. At the grocery store, I had six different people ask or comment about my purchases including the checkout lady, the bag boy, the people in front of and behind me in line, and two random people in the store! I couldn't wait to get out of there. Hahaha!
