Dream of:08 July 1984 "Grocery Shopping"
Louise and I went to the grocery store to pick up some things. We had been there the day before and there had been some sales on. But for some reason we hadn't been able to get what we needed. Louise walked off by herself and I was left to pick up some things, including some paper towels. I got everything I was supposed to and went to the cashier to check out.
The cashier began ringing up the items. When she finished she gave me the receipt; it appeared to me the total was too high. I realized the paper towels had been on sale the day before for about $1, but now they cost around $1.79. However, I wasn't going to take them back since they had already been rung up. But I saw the cashier had charged me too much for something else. I had taken back one item which cost about fourteen dollars and had asked her to deduct it. Instead she had added it again. The total bill was around $100. I pointed out her mistake, but she was quite insolent and didn't seem to want to do anything about it. Finally she said she would take care of it; but instead of deducting the charge, she added it again.
By now I was quite upset. Everything had already been sacked up. I dumped everything out of the sacks, said I wasn't going to pay for it and headed for the door.
