Three for the price of one
I flipped my light off to go help another cashier with something, and after I walked away, an old lady started unloading her cart at that register. She eventually got a clue, as did the lady who walked up behind her (two of them now?) and went somewhere else. I jumped back on and she came to me again. At least now the light was on. So we went through the transaction and she proceeded to swipe her card upside-down, repeatedly. I had to tell her 3 times the strip was in the air, not in the reader. You could hear the raised numbers bumping along. We finally got through and then she left all her bags behind. Wow, people just aren't thinking today.
