Must learn to bite my tongue more often..

I was at the grocery store tonight, having my groceries rung up. A gentleman comes up behind me and starts placing his groceries on the conveyer belt.

Cashier: I’m sorry sir, but I’m closed.

Gentleman: Oh, okay, I’ll go to another register.

Me: *Looks around, sees no ‘register closed sign’, and the light is still on the numbered lamp above the register.* But ma’am, your light is still on. There’s no sign. It looks like you’re open.

Cashier: *laughs* I’m open. I’m just giving him a hard time.

Gentleman: She (meaning me) was ready to fight for me!

Cashier: Guess I’m glad she’s not carrying a gun. *laughs*

Me: Who says I’m not?

Cashier: *blink, blink*

Gentleman: *blink, blink*

Cashier: Here’syourchangehere’syourbagokaythanksbye.

    LOL!!! That was just too good an opportunity to resist, eh? :D

    That’s two more people that are left a little apprehensive, which is best in today’s society. I’d rather them be fearful of giving me a hard time, than secure in thinking they can take advantage.

    It just popped out, folks. Hell, in some places that might even have been considered a ‘threat’. But it was very hard keeping a straight face until I left.
