I laughed all the way through this post. I really think you should try to throw her off next time. I especially like the, "None, why do you ask?" reply -- surely you can pull that one off without giggling, right? Pretty pretty please?

My husband was a supermarket cashier when he was a teenager and he is hypercritical of the poor souls who have to scan our orders. But there was this one kid who saw that we had sunscreen or something and went on and on about his beach trip to Jersey. Seriously. JUST SCAN, KID!

On another note, I noticed that the new Amy Tan book is in your sidebar. Where is it in your to-read/have-read list? I'm curious what you think of it since I just finished it.

I love the juxtaposition of "My mom's cat died" and "Oooh guacamole!"

It's almost like she had a fiesta funeral for the poor cat!

Only in Baltimore would a Safeway be considered upscale and yuppie :)

I also love that guacamole is a staple for you. I loooooooove guacamole.

I did the whole grocery-checker thing to put myself thru college. I have worked with too many of the type you described.

They are super lonely, have no life and just can't STFU.

They all used to come into the store on their day off to 'visit'...cause once again, they had no life.

Good luck on the witty responses!

ps- Guac rocks!

This was a hilarious story!

Also, "Better crazy than sorry" is my motto in life too!

Glad to know I'm not alone.

If we were to take up a collection... would you run a little experiment? I really, really want to hear what she'd say to some very random purchases.
