Today I went to a big store that has a big W on the front - not Woolworth's. I needed one item and luckily the door where we parked was close to that area of the store where the French Vanilla creamer is located.
I walked to the back of the store and returned to the front. I could not believe it. All the check-outs were do it yourself. There may have been three cashiers but they were halfway to the next block. So I used the self serve.
There were at least three employees chatting there. I assumed they were there to help old codgers like me scan their items. I asked one when she stopped talking if she would help me. She scanned the item and pointed where I should insert the bill. (I know this isn't hard. I can do it. I just don't work there and want them to do their job.) She put the creamer in a sack. I got my dollar bill, silver change, receipt and started to walk away.
See? It drives me nuts.
I had forgotten the creamer.
