not so much bad service as um...uncomfortable service

Last night, I went to Hannaford (a grocery store for those of you who don't know) to purchase a pregnancy test. I tried my best to be discreet about it, since it was really nobody else's business. I got up to the counter to check out and the first thing the cashier said was:

"So are you looking for a yes or a no?"
I was kind of in shock that she was asking me this and stammered "n-n-no..."

She continued on about how she's been in the same situation and kept saying "good luck" and such. I know she probably didn't mean any harm by it, but come on. You don't ask people about private matters such as that. If you were a pharmacist filling a prescription for Valtrex, would you tell the recipient "Good luck on controlling your genital herpes!" or, upon dispensing the RU-486 pill, announce "I HOPE YOUR ABORTION GOES WELL!"? No.
