    "Oh, it didn't scan? It must be free!"

    1. When a customer lies about having talked with a manager.

    2. When a customer tries to return an item without a receipt.

    3. When a customer can't distinguish between sale and non-sale items.

    4. When a customer's item doesn't scan and they say the most groan-worthy line in retail history.

    5. When a customer is shocked at the total price.

    6. When a customer hands you their trash.

    7. When a customer asks "Do you work here?"

    8. When a customer gets angry over you asking for a donation.

    10. When a customer doesn't have their change ready, despite spending ages queuing.

    17. When a customer continues their phone call while you're serving them.

    18. Or when a customer has their headphones in while being served.

    19. When a customer thinks "the back" is some magical hiding place for products.

    20. When a customer is standing outside 20-30 minutes before the store opens.
