I was at target today and paying separately for 2 orders. I got the first one done, gave her cash and left my wallet next to the card slider thingy. She continued ringing up the 2nd and bagging it so I walked over to the bags and started loading them in my cart, all while keeping an eye on my little one in the card who likes to stand up in the seated part and my older one who I fear will sprint away from me when I'm not looking. Anyway, the cashier wasn't even done ringing up my order and asks, "How are you paying for this?" I felt right away like she was insinuating that I wasn't going to pay. I just said, "Why, are you done?" When she clearly wasn't. She kept ringing it up and I paid and went about my day.
In the car I called the mngr and told her what happened and she said they have to ask that because they're being timed on how fast they scan. But she didn't ask for the first order and wasn't even done ringing me-cont.
I have never been asked this question. I think I would be taken aback at first too. Seems kind of rude no matter if they are being timed etc. What business is it of the people in line behind me how I pay for my items? Let it go, but I agree, I would find this odd. I hate how now days they have taken to asking "do you have anything on the bottom of your cart you need help with" as a way of checking to make sure you are not shop lifting. I don't appreciate having my intelligence insulted that way. If this is an on going problem just check the bottom of each cart as it comes through your line and shut up already.

lol, maybe just a little crazy! It is really annoying when people act that way. I think lots of people in the customer service field have quit being nice and act like you are inconveniencing them by asking them to do their job.
