Like Beyonce says...

I got a big ego....

I have a new favorite cashier at Walmart. As I'm unloading a full buggy's worth of food on to the register conveyor, the hmm.. how do I put this... eccentric looking cashier immediately starts talking my head off. Me being me, start talking right back with him and before you know it I'm teaching him about spices, he's telling me life stories about his friends, I'm coming back with stories that can beat his.. blah blah blah. Then he tells me he's giving me a discount today. He says I'm getting the "attractive lady" discount (in a completely non-creeper way). I tell him I'll take it with a shrug of the shoulders, not really taking it seriously. He finishes ringing me up, I take note somewhere in the back of my mind how low the price sounds for all the food, we wrap up the conversation and home I go.

I forgot all about it until this morning when I stumbled upon my receipt. I can't remember everything I bought, but I did notice this:
the 3 lb Roast I should have been charged $10 for - not on my receipt.
The beautiful *calorie free* Christmas sugar cookies sitting on my counter - no proof that I actually bought them.
The 6 yogurts sitting in my fridge - only shows 3 on the receipt.

Dude really? I'm appreciative and all, but please don't risk your job. The more I think about it... I had no makeup on and felt like ass - remember - I didn't feel so good. I'm pretty sure he just felt bad for me.

* I don't have much to say about that mess of a Patriots game from last night other than that is not the team I have come to know and love ~ on to the next one... *

Ewwww! I hate that. I have a favorite cashier at WalMart though. She's this little southern Army wife. In my imaginary world, we're friends. I mean, we do see each other every Wednesday.

That's crazy. Good thing they didn't stop you on the way out.

Haha, I think that's awesome! It's just karma for actually being a friendly customer...he probably never has anyone actually have a conversation with him! :)

How fun! Sounds like a good shopping experience to me! He probably was so surprised to have someone treat him nicely he got caught up talking and forgot to charge for a few items...lol You probably made his day!!

JG said...

Bahahaha. That's hilarious. You probably made his day, you know?

Hahaha I used to do the same things when I worked at WalMart. There were totally friendly people, then the real assholes. Assholes, maybe I'd ring things twice, if they did happen to notice, then I'd pretend it was a mistake and correct it. If not, oh well Karma got them! Friday when I went black friday shopping there, I thought my total sounded VERY low for what I got, after making my way home and checking my receipt, I got about $40 worth of stuff free. =]

Dang, you go girl! I wish that would happen to me... ;)

MG said...

Haha, maybe he's trying to "stick it to the Man." The man of course, being Wal-Mart.

Haha! Oh my gosh! I can't believe he did that! Like someone else said, maybe he was also sticking it to the man. Or trying to help out people in the economy in his wrong way lol.
