Maybe there’s hope for me yet!

And: have you ever been made to feel guilty about your food purchase by the cashier ringing you up?

Also: since Mckenzie has thrown down the gauntlet about doing writing prompts, I’ve been thinking of doing some of the cool ones here at Lit Drift

  1. That was an interesting (and encouraging) article! Thanks for sharing!

    And Lit Drift looks like a really interesting site — thanks for sharing it, as well!

    I’ve felt silly once or twice when I was buying odd things at the grocery store; the only example that immediately comes to mind is when my friend and I bought bags of candy back in public school. But I don’t know that a cashier has ever deliberately tried to make me feel guilty about what I was buying . . .

  2. Looking back, I can laugh: what I had was one of those giant muffins (because silly me, I left the house without breakfast, and it was going to be a while until lunch), and the cashier-lady was (apparently) a massive calorie counter. I felt soooooo guilty!

    1. That’s not even fair! Cashiers should be nonjudgmental . . . How could she know — maybe you were going to share your muffin. Or what business is it of hers if you wanted to eat the whole thing? Or, like, three muffins? Sheesh. =[

      If it’s in the store, you should be allowed to buy it without being harassed by the cashiers!

      In any case . . . Happy Halloween!
