Poor choice of words under the circumstances, although you meant no harm
23 - If a cashier is being genuine, it'll be pretty obvious. If they're having a really good day, they'll be pretty bubbly. If they're having a shitty day, either you'll hear generic responses or they won't talk at all. If they're having a REALLY shitty day, they might start being honest!
I feel bad for the family more than I feel bad for the OP here. You really have to be careful in a situation like that.
As a cashier myself I always just say "I'm doing well, thanks" but when some customers actually question me about it like "are you really?" I am always taken aback so your response might be better haha. I'll just be sure to keep that response at the store :p
Your standard reply is the same as mine, I use OP's when I'm feeling a bit crabby while around my regulars, sometimes I'll actually be honest if it's really good or horrible and I know they can handle it (otherwise response #1 or #2 apply). It's hard to come up with a different response to repeat questions like that... easier to just turn it around. We retail people feel for you OP!
