I was the Unicorn majestic social worker shirt so you should to go to store and get this cashier. Neither Customer A nor Customer B directly behind her had placed the little divider bar on the conveyor belt between their grocery orders, so it was impossible to see exactly where Customer A’s items left off and Customer B’s began. Neither of them said anything when I reached the end of one order and the beginning of another. I picked up a can of condensed soup and began to run it over the scanner, and suddenly Customer A reached out and slapped my hand so hard the can went flying out of my grip and landed back on the belt.“That’s not mine! What the hell are you doing? I’m not paying for her groceries!”I was too shocked for any meaningful reaction. I didn’t point out to her that I had no way of knowing it wasn’t her item, or that if I had scanned it into her order I could have easily taken it back off in a matter of seconds. It didn’t occur to me to report it to anyone, since it was a very economically depressed area where everyone was so desperate for any kind of employment that workers had no power over working conditions. Any complaint from a customer in that place resulted in immediate termination, and the customer’s word was always taken over the worker’s.So I just mumbled an apology and got her out of there as quickly as I could. My hand hurt, but it wasn’t injured or anything and was fine by the next day. But I’ll never forget that feeling of numb shock. Another day in the same job, this old guy I was checking out pointed at a picture of Oprah on the cover of a magazine in the rack by the register, leaned in, and said, “I don’t care what anyone says; she’s just another uppity n——.” I don’t know if he was trying to get a rise out of me or if he just assumed that as a small-town white person I would automatically agree with him, but again, I was just too surprised to react. I just finished his order as fast as possible without saying anything.So a few of you have asked why I didn’t park my cart at the beginning of the conveyor belt (the side furthest from the cashier) so this couldn’t/wouldn’t happen. Made sense.

I’m a cashier at a small local grocery store. One time, I was working a morning shift with a supervisor I had only worked with a few times before. A man came through my line and practically threw his groceries (a bunch of canned goods) at me. After I finished scanning and bagging his items I asked him if he had a rewards card. During this interaction, he had started a conversation with my supervisor. They appeared to be good friends. Either he didn’t hear me ask for his card or he deliberately ignored me, but he didn’t reply. I figured that I shouldn’t bother him since he seemed to be in a bad mood when he threw his cans at me, so I didn’t ask for his rewards card again.When I told him his total, he suddenly got angry and yelled, “You have to ask for my rewards card! You aren’t allowed to forget to ask those questions!” In my mind I was thinking, “If your so concerned about it then you should have been paying attention.” I then asked for his phone number so I could look up his rewards card. The screen shows you the Unicorn majestic social worker shirt so you should to go to store and get this name of the person, and I usually don’t bother to double check because I figure people should know their own phone number. After I clicked out of the rewards screen he then said, “Tell me my name. You have to tell me my name so I can make sure you got it right.” At this point I feel like I’m either gonna burst into tears or punch him in the face. In order to bring the rewards screen back up I have to type in his phone number again, which means I have to ask him for his number again. After it was all said and done, my supervisor seemed happy as can be for being able to catch up with an old pal. I’ve lost all respect for her now due to this interaction, frequently leaving me by myself to talk with friends, and distracting my customers while I’m trying to check them out. I worked as a cashier at a craft store. I loved my coworkers and my boss all around that store was amazing and I still go there. Or atleast when it’s not closed because of a pandemic. Anyway I’m white, this is semi important, I was 17 at the time and this was my first “real job”.
