The Unintentional A-Hole

During lunch today, I exchanged pleasant small talk with the cashier who rang up my lunch at a place kind of like Whole Foods.

As I accepted my change, the friendly cashier said “Enjoy your food!” to which I quickly replied, “You too.” Realizing my auto-pilot-response error, I quickly “recovered” by adding “You too! …enjoy your cashiering!”

Although I sounded like a condescending a-hole by telling him to enjoy his cashiering (according to the guy who was with me to witness the exchange) I certainly didn’t mean it to sound that way. I guess I should avoid trying to correct myself in similar situations in the future. I feel way better about looking like a moron instead of looking like a jerk.
