There are two, and they take place at the checkout line, that I would like to have seen.
1. People who still write checks at the checkout counter; some for as little as a couple of dollars. They wait until the cashier tells them how much the total is before they take out the checkbook and fill out anything. They could fill in everything except the amount while the cashier is doing their job, but they don’t. In many cases the register will do everything except sign the check for you, but they still have the need to fill out everything themselves. Even people who charge often wait until the last second to look for their card. And they always have 27 cards to leaf through, often twice.
2. But my favorite: The person, almost always a woman, who takes 5 minutes looking through their suitcase of a pocketbook for that elusive change. “I know I’ve got that 63 cents in here somewhere.” There have been a few times I’ve come close to pulling a dollar out and paying it myself.
