more amusing than bad service

A few weeks ago, I had to stop at the rite-aid across the street from where I work. I needed two inexpensive, simple things: shaving cream, and a pack of hair elastics.

So I take my purchases up to the register. I had a small amount of cash on me (six dollars and some change), and my credit card. The man at the register, who was clearly the manager, rang up my two items. As he was about to tell me my total, he got this weird look on his face, and cut off before he got to how much I owed.

Manager: "Your total is..ah...would there be anything else you need, today?"

Me: "No sir. How much did you say my total was?"

Manager: "Um. Are you sure?"

Me: "Quite sure. How much?"

Manager: "And how will you be paying for this?"

Me: "That depends on how much my total is."

Manager: *silence*

By this point, there was a line of about six people behind me, I was tired, and annoyed, so I dug out my card.

Manager: "Credit? Just swipe there, please."

I swiped the card, he ripped off the receipt, and silently shoved it across the counter at me along with a pen.

It was then that I saw the total: $6.66. I also noticed that the manager was wearing a small gold cross.

Me: "Ah. $6.66. Good thing I don't care about unlucky numbers."

Manager: *glares, shoves my purchases at me, turns to next customer*

ooook. when living in kentucky, in an area with many, many churches, do not purchase shaving cream and hair ties from rite-aid. because you just might end up summoning the beast.
