Oｈ ! My God Story NO. ３９
I will never go to the supermarket next door. (part- 1)
This is going to be a long story.
So I will divide into three parts.
There is a big supermarket called Dagostino right next to my apartment.
It's a fancy and famous supermarket.
Al Pacino comes often to this supermarket for his grocery shopping.
This store is open from early morning till at eleven in the evening.
But I haven't been to this store for two and a half years.
I go all the way to the supermarket which is a little far.
That is because I think no employee at the store likes me.
Let me tell you what happened.
One day, I was in line at a cash register after shopping as usual.
An employee charged me a package of toilet paper
which was bought by a customer before me.
In short, I was made to pay for a purchase of another customer.
I didn't buy toilet paper.
I showed a receipt and the contents of a bag to a female employee.
But she didn't understand.
The employees are all hispanic.
The battle became two to one after all.
But I didn't give up.
