Default Item limits don't apply to me...!

Witnessed some dude across the store on one of the self-serve registers start yelling at the employee supervising the section when she informed him of limits on a particular item (couldn't see what it was from my perspective, but I'm guessing T.P. or paper towels) about how he was "Buying some for my mother...!", and then start yelling, "CORONA, CORONA...!" at her, because she was wearing a plastic face shield instead of a mask (we're allowed to use whichever we choose) and accusing her of "harassing" him "...every time I come in here!" He then stormed out in a snit with one of my managers tailing him into the lot.

Asshole.

Buying it for his mother ... sure ...


Not to say I haven't had an increasing number of people buying for more than one household. But when they raise that much of a fuss, I'm inclined to think they're pulling that "buying it for my poor aged sick mother" out of their butt.

He needs all the toilet paper because he's always pulling stuff out of his butt.

Yeah but the store needs it more for putting up with all his shit.

That's why the signs are clearly there on the limits, yet I always hear at least one person say to their partner "You think they'll really notice?" Um, yes, they will! Now, some stores have a list at the register advising of the limits of certain items. So, in other words, you are reminded when you take it from the shelf, and you are reminded again when you go to check out. You can't miss it!

Around here, it's been taken out of the hands of humans, and the terminal will disallow multiple items that are scarce / perceived scarce / or valuable.

Man, EVERY store should program their terminals to do this, especially the self-serve ones.

Flour: back on the shelves! Coffee, ditto! Beer: all you can drink! Gone: corned beef hash.

Asshole.
I see at the stores people putting in their carts tp/paper towels over the limit. If no one says anything one time, then they get away with it one time, and next time and next time until someone does say something. Instead of "I was lucky to get away with it so far" they think, "you people are trying to take my tp/paper towels away from me! You're picking on me!"

I remember at the bookstore we had a limit on some Funko Pops from a convention. And of course a woman couldn't believe she couldn't go over the limit, like I'm picking on her, of course the limit didn't apply to her. I don't know if she came back when I was gone for the day, since I was the only cashier that morning. No way she could get someone else to ring her up. Oh, forgot about the cafe. Eh, I did my job.
