I was in the supermarket yesterday morning, on the last day of a long weekend well away from work and anything related.
The cashier, as she was scanning my items through the checkout till, said
Do you want me to give you the heavy stuff?
My immediate (but thankfully unspoken) response, was to wonder whether I should ask,
What's going on? Is everything alright?
...and then I realised she was just referring to the stuff I was buying, that it would make sense put the heavier things in my bag first. At times like this I wonder if there's a part of me which never quite truly leaves work behind.
Still, I also remember the time when a cashier had to give me all of my change in coins. She apologised as she did so.
I'm sorry, I've got no notes.
I'm not sure quite how I resisted the temptation to say Well, how do you smell?, though it was probably for the best that I did so.
