Anyone who has ever worked in retail can attest to the fact that almost anything and everything can happen in a store. During my brief spell as a cashier, I actually had a woman go into labor at my register. Honestly. She came up to me to pay for a pair of baby shoes, looked me straight in the eye and said, “I think my waters have broken.” Like any sane individual with no midwifery experience, I panicked.
My first reaction was to offer to call the stricken customer an ambulance, but she told me that it was her second child and that she’d be able to “hold it in” until she’d visited the store neighboring the one I was working in. Apparently, she didn’t currently have enough clothes for her imminent arrival. I was speechless, and when I realized that she wasn’t going to budge, I said “good luck” and scanned the shoes.
