I went to the Shoppette on Redstone Arsenal. The Shoppette is a small store with only a hand full of cash registers to check out.
I had two items in my shopping cart. I walked up to the cash register and the cashier asked me if I had already paid for my items. I said, no.
Then all sorts of things started going through my mind. What did she think I did, go to one of the other cash registers and pay then walk over to her cash register after paying for my items.
I also wondered what she would have said if I said, yes I already paid. Would she have just let me walk out of the store even though I had not paid of my items.
They say there is always a first time for everything and I must admit this is the first time I have ever been asked if I had already paid for my items while waiting at the cash register to pay.
I just keep thinking about her and laughing.
