So this happened on Halloween. (sigh)
I was finished scanning grocery for a customer and total was $4.50, she tried to pay with $2.00. I waited for a few seconds to let her realize that she needs more change to pay the items, then this happens...
Me: "You need $2.50 or more to pay."
Customer: "But I only got $2."
Me: "No problem, do you have credit/debit card?"
Me: "Ok, then I have to take some item off."
Customer: "But I only have $2 and I want this stuff!"
Me: "Yes but you need to pay more or equal for your items."
(We actually had a stare off...)
Customer: (mini forcefully tried to grab grocery bag) "I ONLY HAVE $2 AND THAT'S HOW I WANT TO PAY!" (by showing her empty coin bag to me)
Me: (surprised) "That's not how it works!"
At the end, I called the manager to override this transaction since there's a line up.. I wouldn't mind helping the customer but I thought in order to buy something, one needed to pay for them..
