What they are really saying is "Is that everything, you didn't forgetfully stick anything in your pocket?".

Yep - and your denial will be on camera.  I actually doubt that the checkout operators are aware of why they ask the question they way they're instructed to do.

When you remember that restoring a Compaq PC circa 1993 to 1994, to its factory state involved using 22 restore floppies and took several hours. The feeling of relief that none of the floppies failed to read!

When you're at the supermarket and the checkout operator recites the script taught at the team training session:

 

"did you find everything you needed today?" 

 

To which my standard reply is "oh - I've probably forgotten something - can you remember what it was?" 

 

I need a new line.

 

 

Your correct response is "I can't find a suitable response to your question".

The innocents. My after school job years ago used to be for a secondhand dealer. He never sold anything that opened without checking that there wasn't something stashed inside. I've seen people trying to smuggle out wardrobes full of other stuff. Often there was no obvious shortage of cash. I'm always surprised that more checkouts don't check the obvious.

Or "Unexpected question in the checkout area"

Nowadays, instead of laughing or looking perplexed, the young ones go through my bags or look at the receipt, making suggestions, "you haven't got milk - could it be that?" etc.


I commend that they're helpful and sympathetic but this leaves me without an adequate response.


I need a new line.



Hahahaha! Too funny.

When you turn up for the job interview and the interviewers are younger than your son.

 

 

 

when you get hired and almost the entire company are all younger than your son, including the Manager.

 

 

 

When the old fart in the company says I've had more hot dinners than you, and you say, no you haven't and he realises you are actually slightly older and  he spends the rest of the month pointing this out with glee to anyone that hang around long enough to listen.

 

(all of which are true and happened to me)

I quite often lie about my age - probably not a great idea for a job interview - but otherwise I highly recommend it.

 

Add 10 years on - the compliments you'll receive are easily worth the guilt.
