Hi, Jit again. I've sent in a couple other stories, but this one just won for the month, not because of stupidity, but for the hilarity of the situation.
I tell her "okay" and ring up the items that are on the first order. "That'll be *some dollars*."
She says, "This order is separate."
Okay? "Yes, ma'am, I remember. Your total for THIS order is *some dollars*."
"This is a separate order!!"
At this point, the lady's daughter has walked off and is talking to another cashier she knows out of earshot. I tell her very calmly, "Ma'am, yes, I realize that this is separate."
"Oh, okay." She hands me the money and I complete the transaction.
Then, before I can get a hold on her items for the second transaction, she declares AGAIN -
"THIS ORDER IS SEPARATE!!!!"
At this point, I'd really rather be shot in the head.
"Okay."Throughout the entire order, she tells me that it's separate. I
finally gave up and didn't say anything except her total.
After she paid for her second SEPARATE order, she gave me a huge grin and said, "Thank you! You have a good day, now!" Her daughter came back, and they exited the store.
