This one is s sighting by proxy.
Roomie went to WrongHelp store a little earlier today, there was one cashier on duty (not very busy, so that was cool); there were 2 registers at her counter; this is important. The lady ahead of said roomie had 20 or so items, but what went wrong was this -- when the cashier tried to ring up the first item, the register just beeped at her a few times. After the 3rd try or so, the custy offered to go grab another box of that item, in case it was a messed up code or something. Again, no serious problem there.
Then...the cashier went ahead and tried another item. Beeps. Then another. Beeps. Then another. One would think that a rational person would have suspected something wrong with the register/scanner at this point, right?
NOPE! The cashier went ahead and tried & failed to scan all 20 or so items in her basket, Beeps every time. She got frustrated, called over a manager, and rang the lady up on the other register without any problems. Meanwhile, the manager went to the problem machine, hit a few keys, *taktaktak*, and said "No problem, it's fixed now!".
The cashier responded by just sorta staring at him for a minute, unmoving...until people asked her to continue ringing up the order where she was instead of just standing there with a deer-in-the-headlights look on her face x.x
