I needed one can of tomato paste. The cost is about a dollar. I had some change, so I took that with me to pay.
When it was my turn I handed the cashier 24 pennies, two quarters two dimes and a nickel. She looked at me with such contempt when I paid her with change. I found her demeanor terrible towards me. She was so pissed off to count the change. She literally let out an audible sigh when I handed her a bunch of change.
Now, usually we shop and have a larger amount to pay for. In that case we use a card. This same cashier has been warm and friendly to me, when she rings up over a hundred bucks in groceries. However, when I stood before her in casual clothes, bike helmet in hand and a bunch of change she treated me like scum. Is this what poor people face everyday? Non-people? An annoyance?
What have we become as a society, when you cant pay with cash and still be treated like a human being?
<sigh> No pizza for her!
