As a cashier in a grocery store I notice the following things only: 1. Abnormally large orders ($300 or more) 2. Large quantities of the same item 3. Very odd combinations Otherwise, unless I feel like guessing what's for dinner, I really don't care because I'm trying to get you through as fast as I can. One pork chop and some veggies won't elicit a comment from me because it's obvious what you're doing with it. A banana, condoms, and a romance novel being bought by a woman might raise my eyebrow a little but no more. 30 cases of pop will make me ask what the special occasion is.
Who cares what other people think? I was a cashier once, long ago. The cashier probably didn't care or notice either.
#4, I also was a cashier once and I judged the customers harshly. My boss was about to fire me for the numerous complaints piling up against me, but I quit first because the clientele disgusted me. "The customer's always right?" Bullshit! I'm almost always right!! (I'm not cut out for retail :()
You haven't been doing this FML thing very long, have you #38? :P I work in retail. Trust me when I say most cashiers REALLY don't care what you're buying. We just want to get through the encounter and move on to the next customer while we count down for the end of our shift.
Honestly Op, the cashier would have forgoten about you sooner than I forgot the formula for the volume of a sphere.
