This is a question Shops and Supermarkets

I used to work in a supermarket where the girl on the deli counter cut off the top of her finger in the meat slicer, but was made to finish her shift before going to hospital. You can now pay 100 to shoot zombies in the store's empty shell, haunted by poor dead nine-finger deli girl. Tell us your tales of the old retail experience, from either side of the counter

The most vital part of the shopping experience...
I live in Canada, we use quarter coins here. I remember a long time ago our local supermarket had the kind of carts that are chained together and you have to put a coin in to disconnect the cart and when you're done, reconnect it and get the coin back. One day mom and I are sitting in the supermarket parking lot (can't remember why, waiting for someone?) when this car peels into the parking lot and an extremely angry man gets out, dragging a younger guy with him. He storms over to the cart corral, pulls a quarter out of a cart, and drags the poor guy back to their car, waving the quarter at him and yelling all the way. I'd like to have pointed out to the guy that he probably used up several dollars worth of gas on his trip back to claim his precious 25 cents.
Also there was the time I was in sandals and my toe got caught in the wheel of the cart, and the nail was almost completely ripped off and I bled all over my feet in the aisle. Good times.
