"Today I had the "ImStaying" moment. So I had an elderly lady at my checkout and as she was about to pay Gogo realised she took the wrong card. She took a store card instead of her bank card. Back and forth we went as she wanted to put most of her things back as she didn't have enough cash on her.
"Then came the following customer seeing the situation and told Gogo to take her groceries she will pay for it. Gogo insisted no she will have her people send her the money. The good lady turned to me and said give Mamma all her things and just put her total with my groceries," she explained.
