Oi, Kid.

I was on my break and I walk into the sweets section and theres one kid there that stops and looks at me and he has a big jacket on. I don’t really care I just keep looking at the lollies, then a packet of lollies drops out of his jacket onto the ground….I look at it…..I look at him…..He has the most horror on his face….then he goes


and throws all the stuff in his jacket on the ground and bolts…….I stare blankly for a second then burst out laughing. Later on he came through my checkout with his mum, the amount of fear in his eyes that I was gonna tell his mum was making him keep making eye contact with me. I didn’t do anything of course, it was just too funny to watch it all, i was trying to stop myself laughing.

One lady had 1 thing, a loaf of bread that scanned at $1.20…

Lady : NO THAT WAS $1
Me : Hmm it doesn’t appear to have a reduced tag…soo
Lady : No, it was defently a $1
Me : I’ll get someone to check then..

I ring up, they check and it indeed was $1.20, she is “disgusted” at the price and saids she doesn’t want it and demands I give it to her for free for wasting her time. Seriously!? 20c! 20c GODDAMIT!!!! So I say..


She shakes her head as she walks off…..saying thats pathetic…
