In which Ms. Cashier objects to my use of the free layaway service
After accidentally flushing my wedding ring down the toilet, I went to the jeweller to pick out a new one. Unemployed and unable to afford the immediate cost, I put the ring on layaway. This was apparently offensive and unacceptable to the cashier. Every time I went in to make a payment over the next several months, I had to repeatedly hear comments like, "Why don't you just pay it off? It's only x-dollars" and "I can't believe you're still paying on this." OMGWTF?!
