Checkout remorse

Do you ever get to the checkout and decide against buying something because you’ve gone overbudget?

It’s a little bit embarrassing to say “I might not take this” or “I might put that back”, and it’s not something we make a regular habit of. (I bet the checkout operators hate it too: it just creates more work for them when they have to put our unwanted items back on the shelves!)

But I really couldn’t justify buying a cheesecake for more than $5, when it would have put us over budget and let’s face it, we don’t NEED cheesecake. Especially when I’m trying to expand my baking repertoire…

    I do that ALL the time. But I’m not remorseful about it.

    As a former cashier at a grocery store, I honestly didn’t remind it either. If a customer changes their mind and gave it back to me, I was okay with it.

    What REALLY was annoying was they’d change their mind and scatter everything throughout the store! Then at night, we’d have to walk around and clear everything. THAT was annoying.

    Yeah, I didn’t care if customers wanted to put things back when I was cashiering, it was much better than having it stashed ’round the store, or half opened! Grr….

    <3 the outfit!
