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?”

 

Beep!

 

Customer: “Fine.”

 

Beep!

 

Cashier: “Seen Martha lately?”

 

Beep!

 

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

 

Beep! Beep!

 

Cashier: “How is she?”

 

Beep!

 

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.”

 

Beep!

 

Customer: “Yes she was.”

 

Beep!

 

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.
