    Default San Francisco Store Clerk Confused As Shopper Actually Tries To Pay For Merchandise

    .
    SAN FRANCISCO—A cashier working the closing shift at a small mom-and-pop store on Sutter St. was left shocked and bewildered when a customer tried to pay for her items.

    Store security footage reveals the customer roamed the store calmly while looters plucked most shelves dry. She picked up a few trinkets before heading to the register.

    "I wasn't really paying attention," said the cashier, Brian Risico. "We get lots of looters, but I don't think I've ever seen a paying customer. No one taught me how to use the register."

    "Then this chick comes up," he continued. "She's– I don't know. Normal? She placed some products on the counter and asked for the damage. I thought she was going to hurt me, but it turned out she wanted to know how much money she should give me."

    Risico stared blankly at the woman for a minute before panicking and fleeing in terror. The unnamed customer then placed a twenty on the counter and left. The twenty-dollar bill was promptly stolen.

    According to sources, Risico eventually returned and started his hourly sweeping of the store. Sweeping the store regularly is important to avoid "slip and falls" that can provoke lawsuits from looters.

    I'm amazed that San Fran is still functioning in some manner or another as a city. I suspect you'd be safer in the middle of Mogadishu or Kabul than San Fran...

    My daughter in law and son were there two years ago on business. They had some time to look around and were appalled at the tent cities and filth.

    Seriously?

    Who didn't know it was a parody (albeit an accurate one)?

    Sometimes I despair of you.

    Seriously? Why did everybody respond as if this were a legitimate story?

    Only to idiots who believed that a cashier wasn't trained to operate a register, dummy. We both know it was their knee-jerk reaction to seeing the words "San Francisco."

    Purely anecdotal but I sent this to two liberal friends here (because I was curious) and they thought it was funny. Maybe it hits differently for locals because the amount of theft that dominates our local news but this was pretty good satire.

    Maybe because it reeks of one?
    Bigger question for me is, why do leftists such as yourself ignore this type of crime? Why do you elect D.A.’s that don’t prosecute this stuff? Why are you soft on crime and criminals? Just mild intellectual curiosity. Not that I really care. I tend to avoid the shitholes you people seem to be attracted to.
