FML - The follow-up
moosy0_o Say more :
OP here. A few comments: the cashier was a guy, not a girl. I don't know why most of you think that. Also, there were two elderly people waiting in line who were laughing and berating me as some of the commenters here are doing. And I'm a woman from Belgium, not the Netherlands (but FML didn't ask for my country when I posted it). I WAS already out of the store and going home when I noticed it, so I needed to go back into the store, wait for a slow customer to pay while the rest of the cue was wondering why I was standing there like a complete idiot, and then explain to the cashier why I wanted to pay for the bread. By the way, the freshly baked, honestly-payed-for, Italian bun was delicious, after I had cleansed my palate from the disgusting comments I received.

Whilst I admit that I wouldn't have gone back myself if it was just a bread roll from a chain store, I don't understand why you're getting shit for doing so. It's pretty depressing that people actually mock you for trying to be nice. Ignore them; you did a good thing.

My dad always told me you can learn a lot working around other people. Sometimes you learn what to do, and in cases like this you learn what not to do!

50 it's not stealing if it's by mistake... and the cashier's mistake, no less.

#98, once you realize the mistake, if you don't correct it then yes, it's stealing. What if it had been something expensive? What if a shopper's child were holding an item and it thus didn't get rung up, or if a shopper forgot to take something out of the bottom of the cart? It's not, "Hey, sweet, free stuff!", it's, "Oops; I still owe the store for this; I'd better return it or pay for it."

Come to think of it, FML is a pretty good means for monitoring the moral state of humanity. That's why I appreciate posts like these... And yes, that cajero was hella immature.

Very unprofessional also. I wonder if it's possible to report the cashier to a manager or something. They get very apologetic if you say you're going to take your custom elsewhere.

Even if OP was running for pope, what right does that give the cashier to make such a remark? Some people are just so rude, it's unbelievable. Shouldn't the cashier be glad OP was honest?

Why not better spend than money on school where you can learn to type/speak properly. Please set a better example for your country and stop being such an inconsiderate twat.

I don't know, the new one now is pretty darn good. Bucking tradition and bringing the church to the 21st century. I'm not a religious person but I do admire the things he is trying to do.

61- you know, the new pope is actually maintaining the church's stance on pope celibacy, same-sex marriage, and birth control. He's just as conservative as the last pope in his ideology and isn't breaking any traditions there.

i think 61 was more referring to the fact that he took the shield off the popemobile, still travels on public transport and requested his papal ring be gold plated instead of solid gold. i'm not catholic but i really like Francis :)

He washed the feet of a female, Muslim young offender and other young offenders. I think that is very symbolic because he is actually showing that prejudice like saying people from a different religion, gender or those who offend are second class citizens, is rubbish.

#76, I do understand that not all is better. You must know that the worlds major religions will not change their tolerance on same sex marriage anytime soon if ever. Birth control may be more widely accepted in the future when 60 year old men stop trying to tell women what to do with their bodies. It is where society is now, just think 50 years ago if you were found to be fond of the same sex you would have been ran out of town and/or killed along with your entire family ostracized.
