Chattanooga, Tennessee—

You’ve probably gone through a check-out line and thought, “They’re totally going to judge me for this.”  Maybe you’re a young woman buying 10 frozen pizzas . . . (for a PARTY) . . . or a middle-aged guy purchasing a BTS album at a hip, indie record store.

Of course, most of the time the cashiers are too busy . . . or jaded . . . to notice, but OCCASIONALLY they do.

There’s a thread online where cashiers are talking about the purchases they HAVE judged people for buying.  Here are a few highlights:

1.  Parents who will buy booze and cigarettes, but scream at their kids to put bottles of juice or candy back.

One cashier said a young male customer was once buying various junk food and children’s flu medicine . . . and when the total came up, he was short . . . so he put the MEDICINE back.

2.  Lottery tickets.  Especially when people blow through the money the cashier makes on their entire shift in a just couple minutes at the counter.

3.  Expensive, “premium” bottled water.  Not just because it’s (arguably) a waste of money, but because there’s also a lot of plastic waste.

4.  Anything in a large amount.  One cashier once had a person buy 15 cases of Red Bull . . . and they also “looked like they were 12.”

5.  A cashier at a pet store said they’ve judged people who buy a pet, and the “cheapest, trashiest” food there is.

6.  A worker at a movie theater said they judge people who bring their kids to Rated R movies . . . like bringing a seven-year-old to “Deadpool”.

7.  A McDonald’s cashier wonders about people who order a coffee, with 10 or more sugars.”

8.  A Starbucks cashier admits judging people who buy their kids double chocolate chip frappuccinos at 8:00 A.M.

9.  Anyone buying Circus Peanuts.

10.  This one is probably the best:  Bizarre combinations.  Every cashier has probably sold everything in the store at least once . . . so nothing is a big deal.  Except when it’s paired with certain other items.

For example, one person said, “An older gentleman brought up a large glass jug of red wine, the biggest tube of K-Y Jelly we carried, and two potatoes.  I didn’t say anything, but I thought to myself:  ‘This guy has plans for the weekend.'”

Another person remembered this combo:  “A lady had feminine deodorant spray, Summer’s Eve douche, a can of bug spray, and a fly swatter.”

And a smart aleck joked, “Someone buying donuts, donuts holes, and glue.”
