Aww. I know it's really difficult to do something like that with social anxiety. Keep at it! You can do it. You should be proud of yourself for trying and getting that far!
I have S.A.D as well OP and it's awful. You did good. It takes some work. You might want to talk to a doctor about prescribing you some medication or setting you up with a therapist, because those might be able to help you. It's a very hard disorder to overcome on your own, so don't be disappointed if you didn't do perfectly your first try. You'll get there.
Congratulations on getting that far, hopefully it gives you the confidence you need next time. Just remember, there are lots of people just as nervous as you out there, some are just better at hiding it. With practice, you could be one of those people. The term "Fake it 'til you make it" comes to mind for your confidence issue!
next time the cashier looks at you like that just be like "bitch what?"
Ah, I wish it were that easy. I also suffer from social anxiety and I always tell myself that it should be just that easy, but it never is. I've been working on it for years, and OP just made a great step however. No matter how difficult it is you always have to give it a shot.
