Register Humor

If there is one thing I've heard a thousand times at the registers it is the following statement:

"No price? Well, that must mean it's free!"
This is instantly how I know you are a total asshole and I will try to get through our remaining shared 30 seconds without slapping you. Please, try and restrain yourself, it's not funny anymore. It really never was.

The runner-up to the above statement is:

"No, I don't need a bag. Save a plastic tree!"

I admit, I probably laughed at this the first time or two I heard this one. I may have even said it once or twice myself.

But yesterday I head something genuinely funny while ringing up a customer. An grandfatherly African-American man approached the counter and handed me his book. He then told me, "I heard that it was dark and handsome discount day so I hurried right down." He was so charming I couldn't help but laugh. I replied, "You just missed it actually. It was yesterday, but you would definately have qualified." We both laughed.

Points for you, Dark and Handsome.
