Fast Checkout 

Today I went to the fast checkout cashier at one of the local department stores here in Panama City Beach.


With one person in front of me, it went like this:


Cashier: “How are you today?”




Customer: “Fine.”




Cashier: “Seen Martha lately?”




Customer: “Oh yes, we were there to visit her on the weekend?”


Beep! Beep!


Cashier: “How is she?”




Customer: “Oh she is fine. Except for her back. Her knees are not good either.”


Beep! Beep!


Cashier: “That’s too bad. She was always so out going and on the go.”




Customer: “Yes she was.”




Cashier: “That will be $59.72!”


Customer: “Visa.”


Cashier: “Slide your card through.”


Customer: “Hmmm…”


Cashier: “Turn it around the other way.”


Customer: “Huh?”


Cashier: “Yeah the other end first.”


Customer: “What the …”


Cashier: “You have to press enter.”


Customer: “Oh.”


Cashier: “With the pen thing.”


Cashier: “You have a nice day, Merry Christmas.”

“How are you today Sir?”


Disappointed smile  Yep should have known. That’s the fast checkout. Only 10 items or less.  Elapsed time 9 min.
