Who cares what other people think? I was a cashier once, long ago. The cashier probably didn't care or notice either.

30-True, but maybe to attract an interest from the cashier since OP is worried about what the cashier thinks of them.

As a cashier who gets literally 100s of customers through my lane daily I don't care/have time to think about what the customers are purchasing

Do you think cashiers really care what you buy? As a cashier myself i dont look at what i scan and listen for the beep

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 eyeb

13, believe me, I know. But my point was to just accept it, at least OP has food, which is always the best cure. Besides having a life, of course.

I'm working at a grocery store myself, and if they're like me, they're more likely jealous they can't afford the porkchop you just bought.

#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 :()

I was a cashier for quite a few years. Most of them barely look at what people buy. Honestly all I cared about was when my lunch was, or if it was getting close to quitting time. Don't worry so much about what others think, and buy what you wanna buy.

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.

Seriously, cashiers have so many people coming through that they don't care what you are buying. It's perfectly fine to buy whatever you need.

Honestly Op, the cashier would have forgoten about you sooner than I forgot the formula for the volume of a sphere.

I don't need to know it anymore :D but I did. Oh well, I got 86% anyway. And to the person who gave me their oh-so-insightful opinion on the 'joke', your insult wasn't any better.

Wow, that was largely misconstrued. Apologies, I guess it was in bad taste. It wasn't meant to be insulting.

Speaking of formulas, I always used "twinkle twinkle little star, circumference is 2πr" to remember. Sorry for the randomness :)

While the cashier may mentally judge, it doesn't matter. Their primary thought is how long til their shift ends. Believe me; I've worked that job
