So I went to this medical supply store today; I go about once every few months for Secure Plus diapers because my other local sources were out of the diapers I wanted. When I went to the register to buy my diapers, the cashier asks "you want just one?"
I tell her "Yes, just one"
"You know if you buy a case its cheaper right"
"...oh. I think I'll just take one for now, thanks anyway"
They're $16 per pack, which is decent, but it only comes in a bag of 12 diapers. It might sound a little cheap, but I usually buy diapers from the thrift store for $4-5 by the pack.
Its not like I wouldn't mind buying a case, but the point is, I just thought it was funny that I was being offered diapers by the case by the cashier. I just have to wonder what cashiers like these think. They spend most of their day doing nothing and end up with 20 to 30 customers per day - they have to be a bit more personal with their customers. They have to be thinking multiple things about me: "I wonder if these are for him?", "Buy more! Buy more! Buy more! Budget cuts! Buy more!", "He'd probably look real cute in those diapers", "Please don't shit your pants in the store, please"... okay so one of those might just be fantasy, but you never know
I don't care what people at small mom-and-pop shops think about me. Honestly, with the economy the way it is, the number one thing they have to care about is selling as much as possible.
Sorry for the story of my life, but I had to get it out there
