Rewind to that hectic day when OP, along with his colleagues, was engrossed in attending to customers at the tills.
Unfolding Scene in Peak Hour Rush
A multitude of customers were coming and going. Gradually, the inflow subsided and the fellow cashier ahead of OP began closing up, dealing with her last few customers.
He Noticed Something Unusual
Even as OP, too, started shutting down after serving his queue, he noticed something unusual – the queue at the adjacent till was stuck.
The Persistent Duo at the Till
At the neighboring till, a pair of customers were left – an elderly woman, and a patient man behind her.
The woman, adamant about using a non-functioning coupon, was causing a stir. OP, from his position, couldn’t hear the specifics, yet the familiar song of persistent customer complaints sounded all too familiar.
OP’s Helpful Attempt
Meanwhile, OP had almost cleared his queue and felt bad for the man, who by this time, had been waiting for a whopping 10 minutes.
He Spotted an Opportunity
Spotting an opportunity, OP waved the man over, inviting him to switch lines. The man responded in kind, relocating his few items to OP’s belt. Only a single customer separated the man from being served.
The “On Offer” Argument Ensues
No sooner had OP begun dealing with his remaining customer than she raised an objection, claiming her bakery items were part of a ‘buy two, get one free’ deal.
Not Part of the Offer
OP was certain this wasn’t the case, but the woman’s insistence led him to double-check. The confirmation came, as expected, that her items were not part of any offer.
Adding Fuel to the Fire
Unfazed by her previous error, the woman then directed OP’s attention to other items in her basket, once again claiming a non-existent offer.
It was at this point that the patiently waiting man, now seemingly fed up, muttered something under his breath, and walked out of the store, leaving his items behind.
A Walkout Witness
OP, still caught off guard by the unexpected walkout, glanced over to the adjacent till. The elderly woman was now deep in conversation with a manager who had arrived at the scene.
Despite the inconvenience of having to put the man’s shopping back, OP couldn’t help but feel sympathy for him.
The Final Verdict
In case anyone was wondering, none of the items bought by the persistent lady at OP’s till were on offer.
She’d caused quite a commotion, and a man to abandon his shopping, all for offers that didn’t exist.
