And then they just look at me. I have to explain I go by the four-digit number. Sometimes they understand (which makes me wonder why they opened their mouth to begin with) and sometimes they look even more confused.
I also think it’s hilarious when they try to explain to me what the item is when I’m looking in the book. Thank you, but I got this. Sometimes I don’t even have to look and they’re surprised that I know what they have off the top of their head.
I also love it when they mix different apples and get mad when I have to take them out of the bag to be weighed. It’s not based on price, it’s based on inventory!
(On a side note, has anyone ever rung up “dried peppers?” I’ve only almost sold them twice and both times the customer has filled a few handfuls in a small bag and I have to count them to prove that it’s going to be like $80 for 30 peppers. Pay attention people.)
