Granted, I did watch another girl for 30 minutes first. And, yes, I have been shopping at Wal-mart since I could walk (sorta), but still! Watching Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t qualify one to do brain surgery.
The gal I was watching let me do a few “practice rounds” and said, “You are a natural. You’re real good.” My response? “I’ve been practicing on the self check-out lanes for months now.”
Anybody can scan and hit enter. But then some lady decided to pay with a check (do people still use those?). Then someone wanted to pay with a gift card (why do we sell those?). Next a family wanted to buy a basketball. Did you know the UPC code on a Wal-mart basketball is not on the packaging (like most items in the store) but ON THE BALL.
SO, to sum up my night – the UPC code was on the ball but I was not!
